A new problem.


This was working great yesterday and before. Today, I'm getting this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./mlbtv.sh", line 574, in <module>
datadct['blackout'])
File "curses/wrapper.py", line 44, in wrapper
File "./mlbtv.sh", line 513, in mainloop

raise URLError(err)
urllib2.URLError: <urlopen error (104, 'Connection reset by peer')>

I can't make much out of that. Any suggestions? Keep in mind I'm an idiot.

They're running a free preview night so everyone and their dog with a high speed connection is trying to watch a game tonight. What you're seeing is the script having trouble logging into mlb.com. The newer version that will be released either tonight or tomorrow will handle this much more gracefully. I'm still having a hard time connecting to their service but at least I see a message that tells me what's going on.

Tonight may be frustrating for most, but this is a good baking session for all my new code changes and additions the past few days. I'm doing the best I can to eliminate all vague and unhelpful errors. Unfortunately, on a night like this, all you'd get is a more friendly message telling you that you're still S.O.L.

You can keep trying or you can wait for the traffic to die down (maybe when the East Coast games finish?)

10 minutes folks. Be sure to read the rather lengthy post here that accompanies it.

The tarball is available here:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/mlbviewer/

PLEASE READ BEFORE DOWNLOADING: This is just for testing. It's not a real honest-to-goodness release. The docs need to be cleaned up. There are likely some rough edges. But we wanted you to have a go at it.

First thing you MUST know: configuration is now in a new place. Make a directory ~/.mlb and copy your existing config to it. This will happen automatically soon, so if you don't feel like going through the trouble, just wait a few days and it will do it for you.

Once you unpack it you have two options. You can either just run python mlbviewer.py in the directory or you can do a system install. To install system-wide, just run 'setup.py install'. This will install the libraries in a place where python can read them, and mlbivewer.py in /usr/bin/.

I will be looking into releasing a .deb soon, but for now this is easy enough to install and, if need be, to remove.

Things are as you know them, but better. Audio works, with 'a'. It defaults to home audio, but there is an audio_follow option. Also, you can select your audio_player in the options. Experiment, and let us know which players work well for you.

I've been following this thread pretty closely... thank you guys so much for your efforts.

I'm not sure if I've messed up; using 0.1alpha5, this is what I get:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/mlbviewer.py", line 311, in <module>
curses.wrapper(mainloop, mycfg.data)
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/curses/wrapper.py", line 44, in wrapper
return func(stdscr, *args, **kwds)
File "/usr/bin/mlbviewer.py", line 58, in mainloop
curses.use_default_colors()
_curses.error: use_default_colors() returned ERR

Edit: and this is my config (I only have a Gameday Audio subscription):

user = username@gmail.com
pass = password
audio_player = mplayer
audio_follow = cws

Fake edit: Is it because I'm a White Sox fan?

Probably.

Try commenting out that line (line 58.) I'm not sure it's necessary. My copy works without it.

Is anyone able to connect to the Kansas City game? I had the same problem with the Oakland archive yesterday.

Sometimes it seems to be just one game that gives me trouble (usually the one I most want to see!)

I'm seeing that for pretty much every game, though a few games give login errors. It's happening in the old version of the script too, so it's not a strictly a problem with the new version.

OK, commenting out that line fixed my problem.

It works for gameday audio! When I had mplayer as my audio_player, it didn't.. but once I changed that to xine it all worked great.

The old firebug method worked like a charm. I know the firebug method uses a different page. I'm going to see what it takes to query that page instead. Well, I have a pretty good idea of what it takes.

If you get frustrated with mlbviewer and you want to try the firebug method, refer to my mlbplay script and mini-HOWTO at:

http://www.eds.org/~straycat/mlblinux.php

I know we do things differently than firefox so I'm going to look at how we can become identical to the firebug method.

jkr

What will it take for GameStream to have full access to the listings, e.g., all the entries in a listing instead of just the gameid. Is it possible to pass an MLBSchedule object to GameStream or is there an easier way? Basically, I want to query the same page Firefox hits which means I have to construct a URL with most of the entries from the listing. This would also let us construct a proper Referrer which brings us one step closer to being network identical to Firefox.

This is the url we should query to get the url if the gameid is 645343:

Code:
http://mlb.mlb.com/media/player/mp_tpl_3_1.jsp?w_id=645343&w=reflector%3A55911&pid=gen_video&gid=2008/04/14/kcamlb-seamlb-1&fid=gen_video400&cid=mlb&v=3
This means we need:

w_id
w
pid
gid
fid
v

This also means we could use simplejson to parse the response.

But what's the best way to get all this data to GameStream?

Can we create a gameid dictionary that has all these entries and pass that as the gameid? (hint: Python newbie question ;-)

I'm getting the problems in posts 337 and 338 above. But yesterday's archived games seem to work fine.

BTW, thanks for this! So exciting!

With all games or just some games?

use_default_colors() isn't strictly necessary, but it makes it look a lot nicer, it can have transparent terminals, etc. I know it's a relatively new feature in the python curses implementation. If you're getting that error, what version are you using?

daftcat -- GameStream can have access to everything in the JSP file. Here's a sample game from today's schedule. But there's a lot of information. That's why we have the trimList step -- get the parts that are helpful. Of course, more can be added at that stage (as with audio), it will still be trimmer.

the weird thing is that when I turn on show_player_command and cut and paste it, it plays fine. So the command this is running seems to be okay... I have no idea why it's doing this. Some sort of timing issue?

And, as you said, it still works on old games, and old versions are affected as well. So it seems like, in response to their bandwidth troubles, they did something that made it harder for this script to do its work.
