Waste...it doesn't really show you anything but a link to your players.

The 700k feed is the only thing worth it. Mosaic stinks

I'm not sure who posted it. I think Wrveres or SLuggers but it was a video on the future of the MLB.TV package. It looks sick and it did not include Mosaic. From what I saw

Yeah, I used Mosaic a couple times, but I don't think my graphics card in my laptop can handle it (works okay on the desktop). What I liked about Mosaic is that you didn't have to go through the loading and buffering that you have to when you are just watching games through MLB.tv. The good thing is that they removed the stupid 30sec commercial that you would have to watch each time you loaded a new game on MLB.tv, so I just use that now. The picture is decent enough, and I am able to run the 700k off of wireless through the cheapest DSL pacakage I could get. Just don't watch stat tracker while watching the game, because it is sometimes ahead of the video feed.

I've just given up on mosaic. I full screen it on my widescreen and its all jacked up looking.

Then I update to the latest version after not using it for a month and the widescreen looks ok but the game windows are tiny when they used to be big.

Its just not worth me looking at anymore

BTW If you use VLC Media player and firefox plugin Media Player Connectivity

You can click on the Game and it will open up in VLC media player. You can do this as many times as you want as long as your bandwidth can handle it. So you can watch like 4 games at a time anyways ;-D

Thx, I do use firefox, so I'll have to look into the rest of this and c if my computer can handle it. That's the only reason I liked the idea of Mosaic - with 3 fantasy baseball teams, I'd have players hitting/pitching at the same time a lot.

Its mostly dependent on Broadband speed so if you have cable you should be good DSL maybee 2 games at once

Anyone know if it's possible to somehow export the video feed to one's TV?

Thanks

Yes you can. acs mentioned above that he exports it to his 37" and even makes it widescreen using another program. I know my brother has his computer hooked up to his TV and was able to easily switch it over to his TV and he said it looked great (around a 36" I believe).
