AAARRRggh that's frustrating. Since I'm in the UK and don't often stay up until 3 am, I was loving those free archived games that MLB obviously figured nobody watched. Oh well. Just goes to show, there's no such thing as a free lunch from a corporation. (Unless, of course, they were dumb enough to leave open some other loophole, which wouldn't surprise me...)

Drat. They could've at least waited until after the Cubs-Cardinals series this weekend. I might actually have to pay for the version I use now.

(Sigh.) At least mlbviewer is still awesome. Daftcat, you should run for commissioner and GPL all MLB content.

I have been watching games using Firefox, kaffeine, and the Firefox add-on; Media Player Connectivity. I would prefer to use VLC, so I can have multiple game running at once. VLC crashes 90% of the time when launched.
I have another system running the same setup Kubuntu 8.10 where I can successfully launch and watch multiple games.

Anyone have/had this problem? A fix?

Thanks in advance.

This was explained to me some time ago but I don't remember the exact details. The separate processes are actually the same process but different threads in the process. I once wrote a wrapper script for mpg123 and I remember if I called it without any buffering, it was just one process. But with buffering, it took on extra processes, really just extra threads, presumably to do the buffer management.

Anyway, with 8 mb, I'm not freezing up anymore. It still stutters occasionally, but it doesn't flat out freeze like it used to. If that means there's a dozen processes/threads doing some kernel rain dance to keep the stream flowing, so be it.

I'm going to see them twice this year. I'm taking a trip to Boston and New York next month. I'm going to see the Toronto vs. the Sox at Fenway. I'll probably take in a Paw Sox (their minor league team) game while I'm in the Boston area. Then I'm heading down to NY to see them play the Yankees in Yankee Stadium. That should be epic!

I've been wanting to see Brazil for some time too. Maybe next year. What's a good month to visit?

Thankyou

Just a note to say many thanks to all involved in this project . I am in the UK and can now watch games lying in bed on my ubuntu box while the wife watches reality crap on the TV.

Superb bit of software

Cheers

IMediaObject ERROR: 0x88abfc9 could not open DMO DLL (0x0 : 0)
Failed to create DMO filter
You need to upgrade/install the binary codecs package.
so i miss windows media codecs.

I added the medibuntu repo

Quote:
deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ hardy free non-free
i installed w32codecs

Quote:
sudo apt-get install w32codecs
and that's the ballgame!

Thanks for the kind words. Glad it's working for you.

So who's your team?

Eek! Thanks for reminding me. I'll post something this week. There are waaaaaay more MiLB teams than MLB so I made the TEAMCODES file something you edit from ~/.milb directory. I gave up on trying to put all the teamcodes in myself. Also the jsp's aren't constructed as reliably so sometimes it looks like a couple teams are playing 10 games that day. I'll get some initial code up and then fix bugs as I go like mlbviewer.

Stay tuned. I promise I'll have something in sourceforge by the end of the week.

Why don't you just use mlbviewer? I think daftcat had 6 games running at once at one point.

first of all, what a great program! When the season started, and I could not watch games like I did all last year (and preseason), I was ripping my hair out. I was hoping some *really* smart people would step up and code something to let me keep watching baseball (and my beloved red sox)

recently, I have been getting a a "Login was unsuccessfull" prompt trying to watch the games. I was logged into a Mac computer watching the game, but it crashed a couple of times a day ago - could that be locking my account? Should I just call MLB.tv?
