    So I signed up for the mlb.tv package to watch the broadcasts here in France, since that's really my only option while I'm abroad. Unfortunately, I've not been able to actually watch any content yet. Using Firefox I get a message that it's buffering, but it gets down to about 15 seconds and stops. Using Safari I get the same behavior, depending on which stream I'm trying to view. I have the latest Flip4Mac version installed on my Powerbook running 10.4.8 .

    Have any MR MLB.tv users had any luck using either of these browsers? And if so, what was the key? Thanks in advance.

    Edit: This is the point at which I get stuck in both browsers:

    mlb.com audio with Firefox

    try this, it worked for me (audio only): open up Windows Media Player. from the main tool bar at the top of the screen, open the pull down menu at the far left labelled Windows Media Player. from there go into Preferences. once in there, you'll see three buttons at the top: Network Settings, Connection, and Security. click on Connection. from there, click the correct button according to your connection. you may need to do this routine each time you want to connect to mlb.com or some other URL that's not working.
