I'm on the phone with MLB.TV right now trying to cancel my account.

What a joke. I'll pay the extra 30 bucks for Extra Innings

So what you're saying is that they are basically forcing us to use SilverCrap?

Here are your current options:

Silverlight-400k,800k,1.2Mb
Mosaic (uses Silverlight)
Windows Media Player - 400k, 800k

Since there is no point in using WMP. I'll just have to use Mosaic until they get it working. Mosaic @ 1.2 with widescreen (not all games are widescreen via the feed) Looks great except for strange screen tearing.

Anyways I have a 8800gtx which was about 500 bucks a few months ago. It looks good enough.

The fact that I can't use VLC or MPC really stinks. I assume they changed their feed to address quality issues but who knows they may have done it just to make you have to use a Microsoft player.

One crappy thing is that with Mosaic although fullscreen looks really good you have very limited options. I could have 10 games at once with VLC on my widescreen with small pictures or 3 with big pictures.

Now I can have 1 medium and a bunch of smalls or like 6 smalls. Hopefully this gets "addressed" by the hacking community. I've been researching but see no way around it currently.

I may try an external flash player thing

Does anyone know anything about sharing a user account? My friends and I have done this in past years but I heard it's not working this year. If anyone is doing that this year or has tried it, please let me know.

You can give it a shot. I doubt mosaic would work. You used to be able to use VLC to stream the feed back out va IP address and with some port configuring.

Well, I still can't get the 1.2 feeds to work. In mosaic, at any quality level, I get video but no sound.

In the browser, I can get both video and sound for 400/800 but nothing for 1.2.

Why in the heck do they wait until the regular season games before doing adequate testing? It makes no sense at all.
