That's normal. They often have a pre-game blurb and then go to commercial. Technically, at this point, the game hasn't started so they are correct in showing the "This Game Will Start Shortly" graphic. If you had just waited out the commercial break, you would probably get the start of the game. Commercials on MLB.TV are not displayed. You will see one of those graphics during the commercial break. The only indication that the stream didn't freeze is that there is a slight ripple effect in the blue background.

SVN revision 535: "Pulse Of The Postseason" added to mlbvideos.py

I noticed that MLB.com has a new video category called "Pulse Of The Postseason" so it seemed like a good idea to add it to mlbvideos.py.

I waited through roughly six minutes of silence before giving up. While I did not look for it, I also did not notice any ripple effect.

I find that nexdef mode sometimes takes a little "nudge" (one press of the forward arrow) if the audio is going but the video is stuck. That only seems to happen at the beginning of the playback and doesn't seem to be an issue after a single press of the right arrow.

I have no such issues with non-nexdef mode.

Also, you can edit your ~/.mlb/config file and remove the "-really-quiet" from the default video_player= setting. That should give you more information about what's going on with playback.

I tried the archived video of yesterday's free game this morning and got audio and a green screen in nexdef mode. Pressing the forward arrow simply caused the audio playback to stop. Playback did seem to work in one of the specified video modes. (I tried 1800K and had video.) I assume I can set this in the config file. The speed line in that file has a value of 1200 while the use_nexdef field is set at 1. Will setting that value back to zero set the playback to 1200K then, or is there some other value to set? Thanks.

Set use_nexdef=0 and speed=1800 if the 1800 one worked for you.

Those are exactly the settings I've used. Thanks.

Postseason coming very soon which means Fox will once again screw us but TBS should offer us Postseason camera angles. Within the first game or two, I should have mlbviewer patched up to work with these postseason camera angles. I believe the network code is still there but a new camera angles page will need to be rewritten to the new code format.

Also, probably not all that useful this late in the season, but I am working on a calendar view. Maybe it will make the off-season a little less miserable if you can scroll through the calendar to find those games worth re-watching.

Here's a mock screen I did up in vim and will turn into code over the off-season. It will be month-by-month for a given team so you can see who your team will play in future games and how they did in past games. The biggest challenge for me is getting a day-by-day cursor working for it.

SVN revision 540: Ready for postseason...

I have the postseason camera angles GUI worked out and I see at least one camera angle XML file ready for tomorrow. However, what I don't see is the official offering from MLB and TBS to view these camera angles for North America subscribers. Maybe they'll have that offer on the website in time for tomorrow's game.

For international subscribers, it sounds like you guys need to post another $25 to MLB.TV for a postseason package but you should be able to watch the games live with no restrictions just like regular season. I have no way of testing this myself being a US resident, but you will probably need to add postseason=1 to your ~/.mlb/config file. I don't remember what that flag does other than someone remembered it as a fix for international users during last year's postseason.

Postseason.tv now available for north american customers

North American subscribers, update to rev540 released earlier today and buy the $5 postseason package which includes wildcard, NLDS, and NLCS. Basically whatever TBS is going to carry because Fox sucks and doesn't offer the camera angles.

International subscribers, not sure what your subscription option is after reading the forum. You may need to pay $25 for your postseason package or you may already be covered. Set postseason=1 in your ~/.mlb/config file and you should be good to go with the all the postseason games just like regular season (no blackouts.)

Post season has come with the regular season package for international subscribers in past years, without blackout and with the standard (Fox/TBS) tv feed, both live and archived. There doesn't seem to be any special change in the terms and conditions this year, but we will see.

Maybe the $25 is for those who didn't subscribe to the season. In any case, international subscribers should set postseason=1 in their config. If I can figure out what that code is actually doing (suspect it is something to do with blackouts), I may change the name of the option to "international".

Looks like everyone needs to set postseason=1 in ~/.mlb/config if you want to watch live postseason. Postseason.tv subscribers (North America) and International users will both need this to ignore the blackout status in the media location response.

Also, Quad Mode is a new camera angle for Postseason.tv. Pretty nifty!
