You're probably using the vesa driver which doesn't support Xv. What video card do you have?

Code:
lspci | grep VGA

Your xorg.conf auto-generated on install might need some tuning to fix this but first, let's start with what brand video card do you have?

Post the output of this:

Code:
$ lspci -v

We're almost there. I think I can smell the hot dogs and beer.

How about this?

Code:
$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Theophile's guess might be right. The Ubuntu Installation didn't choose the best video card driver for you. The command above will allow us to verify that.

Ditto on that command. I think we're going to have to force the i915/intel driver. Can you also give us this?
Code:
lsmod

For the cygwin instructions, the Microsoft C++ step is not necessary. If you install openssl and openssl-dev from the Cygwin installation, it was a breeze to build rtmpdump from source using "make posix".

For mplayer, you can download and install SMPlayer for Windows. Then under C:\Program Files\SMPlayer\mplayer, copy mplayer.exe to /bin of your cygwin installation. For example, if you installed cygwin in c:\cygwin, then you can copy the mplayer.exe to c:\cygwin\bin\.

Cygwin took approximately 30 minutes to sort through all the software trees and get what I wanted/needed. The rest took no more than 15 minutes.

good call daftcat, I updated the instructions for these changes...

I normally would have thought twice about posting windows info in a linux forum, but until the sourceforge forum starts being used more, this is really the only mlbviewer discussion board (lets hope that changes soon!)

good luck to daftcat with bringing in new developers. here's hoping the new mlbviewer is even better than the current (which is hard to top!)

Request for Testers: Nexdef

So I have some initial Nexdef code working for live games only right now. I'm not checking it into the main code yet.

However, if you meet the following criteria, I'll send a few of you instructions on how to get going with it. Make sure you tell me the username you post with on this forum as I definitely have preferences for who to give this first code to for the initial stage. Hopefully, with your help and your testing, we can get this checked in and broadly available to everyone.

Criteria:
  1. You're familiar with Linux, mlbviewer, and Wireshark.
  2. You're not afraid to get your hands dirty with some debugging.
  3. You don't need assistance in setting up mlbviewer.
  4. You have a network connection fast enough for about twice the Nexdef stream speed or about 6 Mbps or better.
  5. You have a screen/video card that can handle the nexdef resolutions: 1280x720 or better.
  6. You have a reasonably fast processor and enough RAM or VRAM to handle 720p.

If you meet this criteria, email me at my yahoo address (grep yahoo README) and I'll get you hooked up with this early nexdef'ed mlbviewer.

seems like i'm out of luck. after searching, alot of people are having problems installing drivers for the video card i have, and the only solution i've seen is to buy a new video card.
seems kinda silly since the only problem with my video card is playing mlbviewer fullscreen. everything else works fine, vlc plays any file fullscreen. when i switched to 9.10 from xp it was the first time my computer could display my monitors native resolution 1920x1200, the video drivers for xp wouldn't let me display in this resolution. seems likes there should be a way to config mlbviewer to be able to display fullscreen, doesn't make sense that i have to buy a new video card.

Well, crap, just use VLC as your player. Make you player line in ~/.mlb/config something like this:
Code:
vlc %s --file-caching=4000
Should work just fin. Plus I personally think mplayer is atrocious.

wow that works great! i actually became very proud of myself because i just spent the last hour figuring out how to get mplayer to display fullscreen, which is a problem people have with mplayer the program. went to this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=128546 and copy pasted the mplayer config file, changed some things around until it finally worked full screen. ofcourse it didn't work 100% because when i played a stream fullscreen it would slow down slightly and go out of sync. changing it to vlc fixes everything, no sync issues and fullscreen! finally got it all figured out! thanks everyone

off topic: do condensed games not work with vlc?

Personally, I think vlc is atrocious. I never got it working for me. If it's working for you in brilliant fullscreen glory, awesome! Play ball!

The only problem I had with VLC (dating back to last year) was that it choked when nexdef dynamically changed the video size. So long as the tubes were function well and nexdef didn't have to mess with the stream it was great. It remains to be seen if this is still the case this year.

Of course, I have been using up-to-date binaries provided by videolan, and it's likely that ffmpeg bug from last year was still in a lot of distro's VLC packages (at least last year), so everyone's mileage may vary.

FWIW the "ffplay" command from the ffmpeg package also plays the streams beautifully (at least on my system) and is quite minimalistic. Don't know if it implements any accelerated video like XV or not, so I don't know if it works well on slower systems.

It doesn't appear so, it appears the vlc RTMP access is mucked up. I imagine you have the ffmpeg package installed? If so, put

Code:
top_plays_player=ffplay %s
in your config and see if that works for the condensed games. It handles the RTMP url okay and works for me. You can hit 'f' to toggle fullscreen in that player and 'q' will exit. Note that you need the focus on the player window, not the console you launched it from for these keys to work.
