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.

I'm getting a lot of broken streams lately, both with RTMP and nexdef. Sometimes the streams won't even load, but more often I get disconnected after an inning or two. Is it me/my connection or are more people seeing this problem?

I couldn't tell you because my first place Kansas City Royals (don't get to say that very often) won't stop playing Bay Area teams (where I live.) So I've been blacked out for what seems like two weeks now.

In any case, if the stream connects, I don't think there's much of anything I could do in my code as that becomes a streaming issue. My code is only responsible for locating the stream (and starting the streamer/player programs.)

Are you having problems with only live streams or both live and archived? I won't be around much tomorrow to test live streams but I could look in on archived streams (especially if you tell me specific broadcasts: day, game, home or away, nexdef vs standard def and the speed/bps.)

Yes I got the same yesterday. It was either a problem with the mlb.tv servers, or it was this problem with the size of the IPv4 global internet routing table (which caused a number of internet provider outages yesterday apparently, but should be fixed today): http://www.lnx.ro/2014/06/09/insane-defaults/

Well, at least I didn't have to watch the whole horrible performance of my now second place Tigers ;-)

I know that mlbviewer only does the connection part, but I was curious if other people were having similar problems. The Tigers vs. Pirates game of Aug 11 (the one that ended in 6-11, in case my game listing is corrected for my Amsterdam time zone) stopped somewhere in the top 2nd. I was watching the nexdef home stream (archived). Two of the last Tigers vs. Yankees games (Aug 4-7) also disconnected after one inning, using RTMP (since I had a lot of problems with the nexdef streams before I had switched back). To be honest, I only tried with archived Tigers games, watching the home stream. If it disconnects again in the future I will try some other games as well.

I guess that it would be an issue with mlb.tv, as chrisVV is suggesting. If so, I guess we can only be patient. I guess with the nexdef stream I can always restart it at the inning it cut off at, right? (Haven't tried it, actually.)

Installing mlbhls

When I run make in ~/mlbhls I get:

Code:
gcc -O2 mlb.c utils.c output.c -lm -lcrypto -lpthread -lconfig -lcurl -o mlbhls
gcc: internal compiler error: Segmentation fault (program cc1)
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <file:///usr/share/doc/gcc-4.6/README.Bugs> for instructions.
make: *** [mlb] Error 4
However, if I go into Synaptic Package Manager, I find that libcurl4-openssl-dev, libconfig8-dev, and libssl-dev are already installed. I don't know how I'm not meeting the dependencies for mlbhls.

Your error isn't one of dependencies. It looks like a compiler/environment problem. Are you using Debian or Ubuntu (or some other Debian-based distribution?) Have you mixed releases like stable and backports or stable and testing? Make sure you have "build-essential" installed. Also, make sure you are up to date with "sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get upgrade"

You may have more than one gcc installed also. Do the following:

Code:
$ ls -l $(which gcc)
That will tell you which gcc you are pointing to. If that's in say /usr/bin, you can do a "ls /usr/bin/gcc*" to see if there are others installed. If you have gcc-4.2 installed along with gcc-4.6, you could try:

Code:
CC=gcc-4.2 make
Or since it is a very simple build, you could run it by hand like:

Code:
$ /usr/bin/gcc-4.2 -O2 mlb.c utils.c output.c -lm -lcrypto -lpthread -lconfig -lcurl -o mlbhls
