MLB.tv NexDef Doesn't Support Windows 7

W T F

There was no message when I subscribed - no warning. Nothing. Was MLB surprised when W7 was released? Did it take them off guard? For all of the progress they claim to make, MLBAM is a friggin' joke. :-C

Not familiar with it. Browser based? If so try firefox, and I think you can run an older IE as well.

If its an app launch in XP compatibility mode. Google around, I can't see that it wouldn't work at all. You may have to tweak things.

Few vendors are ready for Win 7. :-{

Windows 7 was released in November. NOVEMBER!!!!!!

NexDef is a plugin that allows you to stream HD feeds of games over the internet, for those of us who live out of market. Without it, we get crap-quality SD feeds- which would be fine if the selling point wasn't the HD.

*Due to changes in Windows 7, NexDef is currently not supported. We are working on making NexDef compatible with Windows 7.

Still, I would ask for a full refund.

I saw this too, I'm sure they have a top notch team of programmers (monkeys) working on it though. Win 7 rc has only been out a year or so, and bananas have been in pretty short supply. Sure they'll have it sorted out in the next 6 mos, especially if Bobo would stop flinging his crap at the rest of the crew...that can't be a productive working environment.

Been playing with this for a while, not sure why as it runs perfectly on my linux box. Too bad I can't have linux at work. Compatability mode seemed to work sometimes but not always. However, after installing windows defender update 1.79.1432.0 it works perfectly. I think Microsoft were the bad guys in this case.
