using the soapevent command daftcat just posted, I can make an mp4 and watch it with mplayer!

any ideas?
If you turn on debug mode it will tell you the full command it intends to use. What does it say?

I can also watch games with the stdout.py tool, so Its probably something in my mlbviewer config somewhere, but i cant figure out what...

any ideas?

EDIT: seems to be working with live games... sweet! definately the only way to watch mlb.tv on a netbook!
Okay, so after your EDIT, are you still having a problem?

If so, post your video_player= command here.

Btw, I really don't like the lack of debug in the new versions of rtmpdump/flvstreamer. I'm sure it's either a compile option or a command-line option to get it back, but I really like seeing all the gory details from rtmpdump so I know rtmpdump is working.

Wait. What happened to your file? Did you remove it? Or change directories?

What I see indicates that mplayer is handing the AAC just fine, but for some reason it is having trouble finding a suitable output driver. Kind of like the problem we just fixed with the video, only with sound this time. Fun, right?
No I can't! It really isn't that difficult. You guys make it seem easy. Thanks!

Nope, I didn't do anything. Though, if you remember, I had difficulty removing the first mplayer from svn. Perhaps that has something to do with it.

No, I meant the .mp4 file. That's what's missing this time.

If you don't know where that .mp4 file is, go back and do the test/soapevent.py step again to create a new one:

Code:
$ test/soapevent.py 14-263916-2010-04-13
Ctrl-C that after about 10 seconds.

Code:
$ mplayer -ao oss 14-263916-2010-04-13.mp4
Do you have sound with -ao oss? Otherwise, quit this as soon as the timer appears and post everything above the timer here.

Now just add "-ao oss" to the video_player string which resides in the file ~/.mlb/config. That should do it!

I have a question about archived games in different bitrates (non-NexDef):
It seems that not all bitrates are available for all games. Is that correct? Anyway, I noticed that the rtmpdump-calls are different for existing streams and non-existing streams. For existing streams the streaming starts immediately, for the others it tries but exits after two minutes without getting any data.

So I'm guessing it could be determined by mlbviewer if the stream is available in the selected bitrate or not?

If this is correct and you agree, maybe you could have mlbviewer respond with "game not available in that bitrate" instead of calling rtmpdump and nothing happening. Thanks in advance!
Or is there a different reason for all this?

Here are the two rtmpdump calls - I replaced my IP address with zeroes.

Existing stream:
Code:
rtmpdump -f "LNX 10,0,22,87" -o - -r "rtmp://cp65670.edgefcs.net/ondemand/mp4:secure/mlbam/2010/04/14/mlbtv_ananya_home_800k.mp4?aifp=v0004&auth=da.ahbPb4cGcmclcjaWblbDaIbmdmaOa7d4-blXXFp-O-CvlpAlDsDpmFJn-k7kbjgkfm7jdjimijdk3kjldl5l9lhjbk9kkj7k8m8j7&slist=secure/mlbam/2010/04/14/mlbtv_ananya_home_800k.mp4&ct5=15-Apr-10&ct6=0.0.0.0&ct7=7424435:FLASH_800K_400X448&ct8=1&ct1=mlb&ct3=7808471&ct4=mlb" -y "mp4:secure/mlbam/2010/04/14/mlbtv_ananya_home_800k.mp4?aifp=v0004&auth=da.ahbPb4cGcmclcjaWblbDaIbmdmaOa7d4-blXXFp-O-CvlpAlDsDpmFJn-k7kbjgkfm7jdjimijdk3kjldl5l9lhjbk9kkj7k8m8j7&slist=secure/mlbam/2010/04/14/mlbtv_ananya_home_800k.mp4&ct5=15-Apr-10&ct6=0.0.0.0&ct7=7424435:FLASH_800K_400X448&ct8=1&ct1=mlb&ct3=7808471&ct4=mlb" -a "ondemand?_fcs_vhost=cp65670.edgefcs.net&akmfv=1.6aifp=v0004&auth=da.ahbPb4cGcmclcjaWblbDaIbmdmaOa7d4-blXXFp-O-CvlpAlDsDpmFJn-k7kbjgkfm7jdjimijdk3kjldl5l9lhjbk9kkj7k8m8j7&slist=secure/mlbam/2010/04/14/mlbtv_ananya_home_800k.mp4&ct5=15-Apr-10&ct6=0.0.0.0&ct7=7424435:FLASH_800K_400X448&ct8=1&ct1=mlb&ct3=7808471&ct4=mlb" -s http://mlb.mlb.com/flash/mediaplayer/v4/RC91/MediaPlayer4.swf?v=4 -t "http://212.247.20.28:1935/ondemand?_fcs_vhost=cp65670.edgefcs.net&akmfv=1.6aifp=v0004&auth=da.ahbPb4cGcmclcjaWblbDaIbmdmaOa7d4-blXXFp-O-CvlpAlDsDpmFJn-k7kbjgkfm7jdjimijdk3kjldl5l9lhjbk9kkj7k8m8j7&slist=secure/mlbam/2010/04/14/mlbtv_ananya_home_800k.mp4&ct5=15-Apr-10&ct6=0.0.0.0&ct7=7424435:FLASH_800K_400X448&ct8=1&ct1=mlb&ct3=7808471&ct4=mlb"

I was under the impression that archived games are only available in 800k. I could be wrong tho.

I must be doing something really wrong with Boxee. I can't get anything to play on it and MLB always says "this game is not available"

is there an idiot's guide to explain how boxee works or how to set it up to make it play anything? preferably in 2 syllable words?
