Exciting News!!!! Rtmpdump v1.6 fixes Non-NexDef Live Games

Rtmpdump v1.6, released on May 17 has fixed the playback issue mplayer was having with live non-NexDef games. Mlbviewer now supports live and archived, NexDef and non-NexDef games, plus live and archived audio broadcasts.

Good news #1:
The required patch for rtmpdump distributed in rtmpdump-patches works with v1.6.

Good news #2:
No code change is necessary for mlbviewer. Just patch, build, and install rtmpdump v1.6 and you're good for live and archived non-NexDef games and gameday audio.

Good news #3:
The non-NexDef stream is extremely seekable. This is a feature that is supposed to be NexDef only, but there's a problem in the way mplayer handles the streams off autobahn that it doesn't have with rtmpdump. So basic subscribers have a feature premium subscribers of MLB.TV (mlbviewer users) don't have. Enjoy.

Mlbviewer will now go into maintenance mode for awhile. There may be occasional bug fixes checked into SVN and a Sourceforge release may be refreshed if it's important enough of a fix. But otherwise, mlbviewer has reached a mature enough state that I can take a small break to watch some baseball.
