I see that the OVF has been downloaded already. At a minimum, you will need the ISO. If you're downloading the OVF, I also recommend the ImportVirtualBox.bat (Windows) or ImportVirtualBox.sh (everything else) to setup the VM for you.

(Or maybe someone is currently downloading the ISO and it just has not completed yet....)

Also, if anyone wants to contribute artwork, I could use icons and I could definitely go for a different boot splash. I just went with public domain images that would not step on any copyrights.

I can confirm that the machine worked, but I had to do it manually as that bat file failed. Nexdef is working more smoothly under that machine.

Excellent! I believe the mlbviewer software is already current. If there is a need to update to a more recent SVN, you can always open a terminal, cd to the mlbviewer2014 directory and perform an "svn up".

If my enthusiasm was lacking yesterday, I'd like to say that hearing this made all the effort of creating a virtual machine version of mlbviewer absolutely worth it. Thanks for taking the leap and I'm glad it's working for you. Enjoy!

Ah cool, m8. Maybe next year the boys can port a windows version to make everything simpler. However, now, I don't have to use that crappy mlb.com site to watch

The VMV (virtual machine version) is actually not a bad solution. Considering that web browsers and Flash plugin both seem to consume enormous amounts of memory these days, the 512 for the VMV actually seems reasonable. At least, VirtualBox caps it to 512 whereas Chrome/Flash continue to suck memory until they crash or you have to kill them. VMV boots fast and is quick to setup.

The one drawback to VMV is the lack of persistence (e.g. having to edit the configuration each time you boot the VMV.) I have some ideas on that such as:

* a login screen when config is absent.
* an in-app way of setting favorite=
* a portable (Windows and *nix) way of picking up system time and timezone data from the host OS (though the tzdata screen is really not a bad hack right now)
* a way to update to the latest SVN when VMV is started

Or I can just look into what it would take to enable persistence: perhaps a small <10 mb partition just for ~/.mlb as part of the OVF definition.

SVN revision 650: fixed a couple of screens for All-Star Game

The addition of "division highlighting" in master scoreboard and the still new media detail screen both needed a couple of tweaks to support the All-Star Game next week.

By the way, they say this year the premium subscribers will be able to watch the ASG. I will be verifying that stream as soon as it becomes available. If there are any problems with premium support (problems in my code), I'll have them fixed and checked in ASAP. If you run into one, try an "svn up" first. If that doesn't fix it, report it here.

Looks like we're off to the races. Quickly tested both the rtmpdump and nexdef streams and they both work. Fun facts: the rtmpdump stream is ahead of the Fox TV broadcast and the nexdef stream is behind it. Probably buffering delay on the latter and Fox probably has its own delay--maybe they're worried about live broadcasting a wardrobe malfunction.
