I have something working but there's a couple things I'd still like to do. Because there are way more minor league teams than major league, it's a bit laborious to add all the team names into the file. I'm either to going to find a way to fetch the team names dynamically, or I'll make a flat file that you can add your own definitions into.

I also want to create a separate milbviewer project on sourceforge since the code isn't quite compatible with mlbviewer. It would be too much overhead to try to support both in the same code base.

I'll have something ready for download by the end of the week. Subscribe to this thread and I'll post here when it's ready.

I have a question. I was able to get everything up and running fine and was able to watch a archive game last night using mplayer and ther mlbviewer. The biggest problem that I am having is trying to get the picture bigger. When it loads is see that its 514x288 but thats is kind of small and want to make it much bigger. I try to enlarge it and the program takes up the whole screen but the video stays the same size

I forgot to say that I am doing this on my PS3 using yellow dog linux 6.0 and I did get it to work just trying to figure about how to make the view a little bigger

Never mind I figured it out. In the mlbviewer config file I found the video player mplayer and just added -vo sdl ran mlbviewer and it worked fine i press the 'C' key and the picture was on the whole screen (in 4:3 not 16:9) thanks this will be great when I am home and want to watch the game on tv hopefully someone can figure out how to do the 1.2mbs

1.2 uses proprietary technology in the autobahn (nexdef) plugin. In other words, unless someone either a) ports the plugin to linux, or b) reverse engineers it, 1.2 won't be available to Linux. I doubt it would work for Windows either without the mosaic application. 800 is pretty damn good quality though.

very fun!

so far the milb games that ive looked at have varied in broadcast quality, obviously they have fewer cameras and resources generally, but i'm enjoying the scale of it, the local feeling, the good ballplayers, the price (about 30 $ for the year)
it's not like i had extra viewing time, now that mlbviewer has unlocked all these bigleague games every day
(really looking forward to the rays-redsox series this week)

and, the milb commercials (whatevers on the local broadcast) are way less awful than mlb.tv's

I've been noticing that it takes mlbviewer quite a while to recognize the existence of top plays. I don't know if it's backend server thing, but right now for example, if you go to the game wrap for tonight's Sox-Rays game, there are four or five highlights, but nothing in mlbviewer. And idea where the bottleneck is?

They come from two different places. When you're visiting the game wrap link, you're getting the plays from an xml file. When you select top plays in mlbviewer, you're getting it from the jsp file. I have no idea how often the jsp gets updated or why the xml gets it way before the jsp. Maybe at some future date, I'll parse the xml.

In other news, condensed games are back which means mlbviewer will support it very soon. Stay tuned.

I'm trying, I really am. I'm trying to follow the idiot steps, but I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean by "go into mlbviewer."

I've got everything installed, and the config file has been edited (correctly, I think, but I have no way of telling at the moment). So what now? Apparently I'm stuck in a Windows paradigm where I'm looking for a nice, neat executable I can just click, but I'm learning that Linux just isn't like that.

I've not run setup.py myself because, as a developer on the project, I find it's a much better idea to know the mlbviewer I'm running is the the code I just edited.

But...

If you have run setup, then I'm guessing all you need to do is type mlbviewer.py from the command-line.

What he meant by "go into mlbviewer" is changing to the mlbviewer directory. I think I put quick install steps (e.g just the commands you need to type) in the INSTALL file for the lazy and attention-deficit folks like myself. ;-)

this is so awesome...
been enjoying the games for a few weeks now in ubuntu

last night i converted from ubuntu to mepis
within minutes after the basic install was done i was watchin' the ballgames (that 800 is looking crisp!) while everything else downloaded, everything working beautifully

and i can hear folks crying on the mlbsupport forums from here!

i read over there that now apparently when you use mosaic it inserts even more commercials?! they're saying that no (1.2 stream, right?) game will start downloading until after you watch a radio shack commercial

-i could not make it without linux-
thanks again yall!

Condensed Games Support!!!

Condensed Games are back and now supported in mlbviewer. The code has been checked into the svn repository.

They are listed under Top Plays because they are only available in 400K streams. It made sense to put CG's here since that code automatically downshifts to 400K. This also means you can use top_plays_player configuration file option to define your condensed games command (e.g. you can half the buffer size of your normal video_player command since it's likely half the speed you normally watch.) Of course, if you don't define top_plays_player, it will just use video_player. (You don't lose it if you don't use it. )

See your latest README file for svn instructions.

Hah! This is my sly ploy to get you all to regress the code after I added 2007 support since I didn't get any feedback on that. Even if none of you select a 2007 game, you'll be touching revised code. I'm always wary of "well, it works for me."

I also added a non-trivial change to the way we determine whether a login is necessary. We read that from the jsp file directly. This should be a fool-proof strategy but rumor has it that mlbam employs at least a couple of fools just to mess with us.

Lazy, attention deficit, yes, yes, but please don't forget JUST PLAIN IGNORANT. Please help us JUST PLAIN IGNORANT baseball lovers.

1) There is no INSTALL file in the mlbviewer package from sourceforge,

2) 'python setup.py' produces a 'usage:' message,

3) and setup.py is only 14 lines long.

I'm totally lost. If anyone can stoop to my level, it'd be much appreciated.
