I do appreciate your help but I'm not sure what to do after downloading the tar.gz. Sorry!

I opened it with archive manager but can't move the file with
Code:
sudo mv rtmpdump-2.2b /user/local/bin
say's no file or directory. What gives?

The download progresses, but around 40% (for PIT @ PHI) or 45% (for BOS @ WAS) I get a ping type of 31 and the download ends. At one point I saw the error message "Could not connect to LIRC, retrying:" at the end of the log file repeated 4 times, but it doesn't seem to be the case after I checked out revision 229. The error from the mlbviewer.py terminal is below.

DEBUG: Set duration: 10414.271000
DEBUG: HandlePing, received ping. type: 6, len: 6
DEBUG: sending ping. type: 0x0007

DEBUG: sending ping. type: 0x0007
DEBUG: HandlePing, received ping. type: 31, len: 6

The downloaded video is viewable, but ends abrubtly.

Any thoughts or suggestions? I'm able and willing to debug the problem but I'm not sure where to start.

Thanks,
Matt
Hey Matt,

rtmpdump has that problem where after about 33-45% of stream (probably an actual MB size downloaded), it is cut off at the server. This happens when rtmpdump is run "naked" (without an mplayer pipeline) or when mplayer is using the -dumpstream option. I don't know know what the issue is but it's not in my code. Fortunately, when run with mplayer in playback mode (not dumpstream) it doesn't have this problem.

One option available to you is to use the soapevent.py script in the test directory. Use mlblistings.py script to see the game schedules and event-id's (the E: number that looks like 14-263816-2010-04-04). Use that as an argument to test/soapevent.py. You'll likely have to run that script about 3 times to get the full game.

A quick script you can use for this:

Code:
#!/bin/ksh

# use the three letter code for your team from the mlblistings output
FAVORITE=${FAVORITE:=bos}

# where is your mlbviewer directory?
MLBDIR=/home/user/mlbviewer

# how many times to retry rtmpdump to get a complete game?
RETRIES=${RETRIES:=3}

#Done with configuration - shouldn't need to edit below this line

cd ${MLBDIR}

eventid=`./mlblistings.py | grep ${FAVORITE} | awk '{print $6}'`


r=0
while [ $r -lt ${RETRIES} ]; do
    test/soapevent.py ${eventid}
    ((r+=1))
done
FAVORITE and RETRIES can be overridden through the use of environment variables:

Code:
$ export FAVORITE=flo
$ export RETRIES=5
This is how I frequently watch games on my slow machine.

One limitation of this script is that it only works for the current day's games. I can make a modification to it later to allow event-id to be overridden. In truth, I usually do all those steps by hand and use startdate=mm/dd/yy argument to mlblistings.py if I need to go to past days.

Hope that works for you.

Well I figured out that I was using the incorrect command to move the file and now have it in /usr/local/bin but still no luck getting games showing.

I know the season has already started but mlbviewer like MLB.TV itself probably won't stabilize until the end of the month. 800K and 1200K non-premium video and gameday audio streams are probably the only thing that work right now. If anything else does, well, that's just cool. I'll send out status updates or post new SVN revisions as other features get fixed for the new season.

Please paste the output of:

you have to run the 'make' command to compile rtmpdump, then you move it to that folder.

read the instructions provided in the rtmpdump folder.

ALSO: it's not "user/local/bin"... it's "usr/local/bin"

lol, okay. You're doing this wrong. Delete that directory from /usr/local/bin

You should have the .tar.gz file somewhere else like a Downloads folder. Unzip it there, then open a terminal and 'cd' to inside the directory. I'm assuming you're running Ubuntu. If you're not, tell me first. If you are, do this:
Code:
sudo apt-get install libssl-dev
make posix
sudo cp rtmpdump /usr/local/bin/
Then tell me the output of this:
Code:
/usr/local/bin/rtmpdump --help

Instead of moving the file manually, after you do a make, do: sudo make install

This will use the makefile's install operation to put the executable where the programmer intended it to go. In this case that could be /usr/local/bin, but may be somewhere else depending on what the makefile says. Mine is installed in ~/bin, so that should fix your problem.

I'm only getting a very small screen. I've tried "f" for full-screen but that just fills it with a black background. If you all are not yet fed up with me, does anyone have a fix for this issue? For all i know, its something quite simple - right!
