Here’s a quick status update for you all on what we’ve been working on. Again, we all appreciate the time commitment to getting this going with us.
We’re working on another build for you all that we’ll be releasing tomorrow morning, with many more updates to the app and bugfixes. I’ll post detailed release notes when the build is available.
In addition, we’re making good progress with many of you who have had installation and playback issues. Generally speaking, the issues we’re now down to are in the following areas:
End User Hardware not within System Requirements: Many of you don’t have new enough video drivers, a new enough video card (that supports DirectX 9.0c), or a PC or Mac that are fast enough to handle the player. In this case, your options are to upgrade your video card and/or your machine. The Mosaic is a next-gen high end app, and unfortunately for some, the requirements are a bit higher than for the windows media player on the MLB.com site. However, if you’re struggling with Mosaic, please note that you can still watch the high quality 700k streams on the site.
Connectivity: Some of you clearly have borderline connections to handle our high quality streams. We’re continuing to work on further optimising the swarmcast app that handles this for us in order to make things more efficient.
Video/Audio playback I’ll be posting some additional tips for those of you still struggling with this. The majority of the issues we’ve seen have been due to hardware not within system requirements, and configuration issues on your machines.
Vista Notice If you’re still struggling with getting things going on vista, please make sure you right click and select run as administrator for both the install and when you run the Mosaic program. This should clear up a lot of the issues we’ve seen.
Thank you all again for your support of the product.
