Wow! This is kind of stupid that third week into the season, there still having service outages. I'd have thought they'd have the kinks worked out by now especially with the number of people asking for their money back in the official forums.

jkr

My merged code that I recently told you about catches this sort of thing and says there was a problem with whatever page it had an exception in urllib2.Request(). The debug option dumps the page to the log file. Looks like the outages they had earlier today helped improve the code so the outages they're having now are handled gracefully. ;-)

Yeah, this is making testing really difficult. Almost like they planned it this way...

I got your files and I'll diff your merges against mine (just because there are a few things I had to do for audio sake, and we might have taken a slightly different route on the debugging config option.) Oh, I also added the ability for the config file to read booleans, so the debugging and show_ options you added will work.

Pretty soon now, guys...

Actually, I wouldn't mind if these outages lasts a little longer. I'd like to optimize the network code to handle the meta refresh statements. I'll see what I can do. If they actually get their act together, I'll set up my own test page to give me meta refreshes to test against.

Seems to be just mlb.com's login page which is having all the trouble. Once I exercise extreme patience waiting to login, gameday audio comes up quick and runs smoothly (through the greesemonkey method). Oh well, I'll take Jerry Howarth for today.

Peachy!

I just added code to catch their "We are undergoing maintenance operations" error page and now they have it fixed, and I'm not getting that page anymore.

Add the lines between the comments to MLBviewer/mlbtv.py:

Code:
        pattern = re.compile(r'Welcome to your personal mlb.com account.')
        if not re.search(pattern,auth_page):
           self.error_str = "Login was unsuccessful."
           # begin patch for maintenance operations
           maint_pat = re.compile(r'We are currently performing maintenance operations')
           if re.search(maint_pat,auth_page):
               self.error_str += "\n\nSite is performing maintenance operations"
           # end patch for maintenance operations
           self.log.write(auth_page)
           raise Exception, self.error_str
You know. I took a sick day to stay home and rest and I've been working on code all day. I got a hold of a live game and I'm going to watch it.

I can add in meta-refresh handling in the next release. Let's get this one out the door tonight. :-)

Just got audio following working. It will play the audio stream of the home team by default. If two teams that are playing are both being followed it will go with the away team, by convention and because the code is cleaner. Sound good?

You tell me. You're the only one with audio support. :-)

Do you need me to look over the code or is it ready to release? Did you change the workflow url to use the right catCode for Gameday Audio?

I'm itching to release because I want folks to test it to heck!

I have four live games open right now and I'm just waiting for the next two to start.

This is so cool. I'm watching live games again. Most of the weekend I was doing my testing against archived games or watching recorded games so I already knew the outcome.

Why do you need to log out? I haven't fooled with this year's mlb.com, but in past years you could get you account frozen for a short time if you logged in and out too many times. If you saved and re-used the cookies, you could run a script many times in the same mlb.com session. I also used to open multiple streams at once by logging in once, getting the stream urls, and then playing them with mplayer. Are you saying this doesn't work anymore?

I'll do some poking around with what you guys got and let you know if I find anything...

Site maintenance patch works. I only did it for one page so go ahead and add the same code to the other two pages we hit.

I realized that one of the games I was waiting to start I'm blacked out from so I probably won't get up to 6 live streams at once tonight (even without the outages.)

Then again, from reading the Mosaic forums, that I'm even able to get four open is better than a lot of them are doing. ;-)

We tried using persistent sessions and ran into the dreaded "Our records show you are logged in from more than one computer." error and a 1 hour ban. I've been banging against their servers logging and logging out for several days now without issue. I'd like to get this new code released so others who were running into this problem more frequently can test it and see if it resolves the problem for them. It's not fun being banned for an hour.

yep. GameStream initializes with a streamtype attribute, and it checks that at a couple of points.

Worked fine with last night's changes. Then I merged in the newer change and they went down again, so I don't know. I assume it does, but I can't tell if there's a stupid missing comma or anything until they get going again. The problems might be regional, I dunno.

Check yours. I had it in the wrong directory. You can now try the old url I sent or the same base + mlbviewer.py.new if the ~ is giving you problems.

No wonder why they're having so many problems tonight. They're running a free preview night with no blackouts.
