What we need is someone to get it cleaned up and resubmitted back into the official repo. The one thing I'll miss from the HLS Binary version is the ability to pick which inning to start playback at, or start from beginning.
P.S. I tested with a live game today and it worked fine!
*** OK, so I pulled out an old XBMC unit I had and checked the version on the MLBMC that was installed from the repo, and it is 2.0.7 with the HLS addition... I never noticed sine I was using HLS binary version ***
What resolution did you get with the live game? I have the 2.0.7 divingmule version that has a HLS option in the configuration. Does it still require the HLS binary to be built? I am getting 960x540 on highlights.
Also, we will have to be on the lookout for changes to video delivery. According to the mlb.tv site:
Quote:Web-Based HD Media Player
Available to MLB.TV and MLB.TV Premium subscribers.
MLB.com will debut a new high definition MLB.TV Media Player, completely reengineered for the 2015 season (beta version will be available in or around March).
I'm not sure if that is going to be beneficial to this addon or mean that it will have to switch to launching Chrome just to work.
In the past I've used this addon for highlights mainly, and actually contributed a bit. Since the Cubs are no longer on WGN outside of Chicago, I am hoping to use this to watch games this year, so I might be getting my hands dirty again with this addon.
