larshenric:
If you want to use VLC as your player you need to edit the config file and replace mplayer with vlc. I've used mplayer, vlc and mplayer2 to watch games and while I like being able to control the audio more easily with vlc (I have quiet earbuds that need the extra gain VLC can give me) I ended up going back to mplayer2. You'll want to make sure you have vlc as the player in each of the formats you want to use (video, audio, and top plays), but one thing I did was include lines for video and audio for each player and comment out each line except the one for teh player you want to use. Thant makes it easier to remember the options in case you find you want to change back.

Glad you found a solution!

And if you're still running 11.04, you might find this page helpful for future questions as well!

Anyway, enjoy baseball!

Thank you, fang2415...!
Now that I've got it running I'm trying the "tools". Recording with mlbgamedl.py is great for me, as the games most often are shown in the night (here in Germany), so I record them a day later and watch them on TV in the evening, without having to get connected to the internet...

What I'll also have to figure out are all the options in the config file. Maybe I'll have to return to this thread with some stupid questions...

And concerning an Ubuntu upgrade: I know, that there are newer versions, but the last upgrade from 10.10 (I think it was) to 11.04 caused me some problems with the printer and other stuf. So I'll stay with 11.04 as long as possible...

It doesn't work anymore... These are my line in terminal:

Buffering streamFLVStreamer v2.1c1

Connecting ...
Starting Live Stream
Metadata:

375.938 kB / 0.00 sec

After that nothing happens... Any idea...?

It's working again...
I rechanged from flvstreamer back to rtmpdump...

But I've got another question:
Recording games with mlbgamedl.py works fine (as I already wrote), but how do I do to record specific broadcast of a game (home or away)? How can I fix that? I tried by writing "away" at "coverage=" in the config file, but it didn't work. It recorded the home broadcast of the saturday's cubs-pirates game...

any suggestions?

You could set video_follow and audio_follow to your team. That should select the coverage from their broadcast team by default. It works great for Dodger games with *_follow=la. You'd just need to use the abbreviation for your team, which isn't always the current abbreviation the league uses.

Thank you so far, BostonPeng!
I did that (putting in chc for Cubs coverage), but it didn't change anything. I still get the Pittsburgh broadcast as download...
Am I right changing the config file? Or do I have to change any other file?

Glad I could help larshenric. I didn't try recording anything so I'm not sure what you could try but hopefully one of the smarter folks will pop their head in and provide the missing info.

Hey larshenric,

Are you a premium subscriber? I know that away video feeds aren't technically part of the MLB basic package, so you may not be able to get it for that reason. MLB seems to apply this restriction sporadically, though. I'm also a Cubs fan (alas), and I can often get the Cubs feed when they're away even though I'm only a basic subscriber; but I couldn't get Saturday's Cubs feed either, so it may not be available without upgrading.

Hi fang2415!

I've got premium, so this might not be the reason. And before trying to download the cubs feed I managed to see it via mlbviewer. But then I had to stop because I had to leave home, and after coming back I wanted to go on with the downloaded file...

Well, and now: mlbviewer doesn't work anymore...
SH...T!!

I'm speculating here, but from the looks of that stack trace I'd guess that something has gone wrong with your video_follow or audio_follow option, or maybe one of the other options that specifies what kind of coverage you get. (The fact that "coveragetoggle.get(cfg['coverage'])" has no length suggests that the "coverage" option probably isn't valid and therefore the function is returning nothing.)

So maybe try playing around with those options in the config file, or even just reverting to the original config file? (Download a new one if you didn't save it.) Then if it works, you can make any changes you want one at a time, and if it breaks again, you'll know which option is to blame!

Thanks fang2415!
I was thinking of a new config file, too, but didn't know where to get it from. Could you tell me where I can download a new one?
