In your config file, add the following to the end of your video_player line:
Code:
-vo xv
Also try changing the value of "speed" from 800 to 1200.

Neither single or combination makes any positive difference. I do get a parsing problem sometimes.

Whats with all the 'download complete' stuff?

I believe that is problems on MLB's end, video feed just ending so rtmpdump reports the stream is done. Restart the stream in that case.

You should be able to just use your mouse and resize the mplayer window. The f key does another operation in mblviewer, it should bring up the flash player in your web browswer.

Did you do the mlbviewer install as listed in the INSTALL document?

I believe I've done everything according to Hoyle at this point, but what do I know.

If I watch in 'flash' I get full screen, but not with mplayer (which is where I prefer to be - flash sucks, plain and simple).

sorry, Daftcat, I know you don't like that kind of language, but a spade is a spade!

What's your video_player line in your config file? Add -fs to it.

Code:
video_player=mplayer -fs -cache 4096
...and whatever options you need or prefer for mplayer operation.

I just ran mplayer again and am able to resize the mplayer window by moving the mouse cursor to the edge of the mplayer window and click + dragging it. The video will have bars on the side of it, because the video is formatted for television, but you can make it as tall as your screen. You could also change your mplayer command to have -fs to make it full screen. (you would make that change in the config file)

video_player=mplayer -cache 2048 -really-quiet

I've just added the '-fs' quotient.

I'll try that as soon as this parser error takes a break.

If pressing 'f' in mplayer (for fullscreen) simply results in the same size video surrounded by a field of black, adding -fs isn't going to fix anything because all that does is start mplayer in fullscreen mode. In that case, the problem is in the mplayer video output driver. The "-vo" switch specifies the video output driver and the "xv" argument tells it to use the Xv extension for video rendering. This is a 2D accelerated Xorg extension and it is ideal for the non-NexDef streams. It should also be the default driver mplayer uses. THe most common cause of the behavior I mentioned earlier, when resizing the player window does not rescale to output image is caused by using the x11 output driver.

To check whether your Xorg server is loading the XVideo extension, do this:

Code:
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep XVideo
If that gives you results, that means you may have accidentally compiled mplayer without support for xv output. In this case, I would try mplayer from the Ubuntu repos. It should work just fine.

If the above command gives you nothing, then you're probably using the bare-stock 'vesa' display driver for Xorg, which is not ideal. If this is the case, please tell us what kind of computer you have and what your video chip is, if you know.

I get that when I am told there is a parser error as I attempt to log on via mlbviewer.

I went ahead and reinstalled mplayer from the Ubuntu respos. I've left the compiled version alone for now. Is that okay?

The parser error disappears when I change the speed back to 800 from 1200.
