If you read the last fifteen pages or so, you'd get a very nice surprise!

jkr and daftcat have come down from the mountain and given us the lovely mlbviewer, which makes both gameday audio and mlb.tv work under Linux without tricks or headaches. You'll love it, honest.

Call to early page posters

If we have anybody from the early pages like Fugazi, jlo_sanddog, Wolfvorkian, or Theophile (I know the last two I've seen in the last week or so), could you edit your earliest post to mention mlbviewer and link up to the release announcement on page 39 or 40?

Thanks!

After logging in and clickig on the game I want, the black Flash screen appears and I would normally click on the icon in the middle of the screen. It would appear to try to start playing and then nothing. This morning, on an archived game, I click on the close button (X) in the top right for the Flash window. This closed out the application and launched the Mozilla media player connectivity link actually two of these windows popped up. I then clicked on the link and then the icon in the middle of the new flash window. This launched my vlc player and started playing. I tried this several times and it seemed to work a little differently each time - I was probably clicking too fast while not waiting for applications to begin.

In any case, the key was closing out the first Flash screen and progressing from that point. So, if you're still having problems - give this a try. It may take several attempts on what works for your system.

Good luck. Will be interested if this works for anyone else.

Also, I need to update my profile - I'm running Linux Fedora 6.
Have a look at http://sourceforge.net/projects/mlbviewer/
or http://www.eds.org/~straycat/mlblinux.php.

No tricks. Just baseball the way it should be.

Got it working!

Thanks for the help on this. It is working for audio at least. I don't have a subscription to the video, but this works great.

Appreciate the help.

It is working Daftcat! Thank

Between you an jkr, all is right in the world, except for my cubbies! But that is a personal problem I've had for years. I live in Brasil so getting baseball is a nice addition to my life here.

Thanks again,

Craig

I sure will, strayCat. The timing on the 'silverlight' debacle was actually rather convenient as I was going to make a "How To" describing the old mediaplayerconnectivity, VLC hack that I was taught by a really smart and kind SA in Fairbanks. In fact, he has an interesting homepage at

http://swingleydev.com/blog/

and the MLB change,making it irrelevant, saved me the time of doing it with the 'requisite' screenshots and all that garbage for another forum. So in a sense it was a blessing plus it ended up getting a very nice product developed by all of those involved. I'm not going to start thanking each because sure as hell I'll forget somebody but thanks to all involved. I just love the terminal approach. If you like, I'll start pushing mlbviewer with a sig, etc in posts to other forums and email list. That is your call, I'm not sure how much attention you want. I seldom ask questions because I understand the RTFM approach and sympathize with it to an extent.

Python error messages are another thing though. I'll ask about them, trying to google them is a bit much to expect from someone.

Swingley is how I found this forum in the first place.

Honestly, I'd rather not attract the attention until after the dust clears with the whole yahoo/microsoft b.s. I have a feeling m$oft is going to acquire them one way or another (e.g. going hostile) which puts a big black cloud on mlb. I don't trust anything coming from m$oft to be truly an open architecture like they're touting with Silverlight.

However, if someone asks about mlb.tv and linux either personally or in some forum, I wouldn't mind if you wanted to point them in the right direction. In fact, if you can have swingley post to mlbviewer that's probably going to get a lot of good attention.

Cheers!
Matthew

Maybe we should start a new thread so it's easier for people to find relevant info instead of just browsing the first few pages of this one and giving up.

I actually did the same thing when I searched. I read the first few pages and then closed it, but luckily I'm persistant and decided to return the next day and keep going further.

You can escape the url in the svn command by putting the whole block into code tags.

e.g.

Code:
svn co https://mlbviewer.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/mlbviewer/trunk mlbviewer
(quote me to see the bbcode.)

I suppose we could do that. The problem, of course, is Google. This thread is one of the top hits. It might take awhile for a new thread to appear in the first page of Google results.

I did a Google search the other night while I was delayed at the airport with *gasp* free(!!!) wifi. I posted on bb's that looked recent e.g. referred to 2008 season so hopefully those who are JFGI (my new favorite acronym) will eventually find us without too much effort.

I'm very pleased with the Yahoo deal falling through but not so thrilled that Yahoo is groveling like a dumped prom date for a new deal with M$FT.

Glad the commercials are back. I mean I hate commercials, but I hated that dead air from the 134 RBI screen even more. Now if they could just normalize the volume so it's not a huge difference between game volume.

Gameday Audio Away Feed

So i love this script, works great, and a lot less anoying then whatever the new thing MLB has.

Here is my question, any way to get the different feeds for each game? Gameday Audio usually has both the away and home feeds, and I'd rather hear WFAN all the time.

thanks.

In your config file, add:

audio_follow = nym

Tip: Using mplayer for audio_player

Set the cache appropriately low since it's a 12 kbps stream (64 - 128 should be plenty.

Add -playlist option to the end of the line. The http:// url returned seems to be a playlist which contains the mms:// stream url.

Code:
audio_player=mplayer -cache 128 -playlist

COMMENT: I'm not sure how many people would use mplayer for gameday audio but on my Windows machine at work, I prefer it to Windows Media Player. Another nifty side effect is that it keeps mlbviewer and mplayer married to a single window.
