NCAA March Madness Live is a Flash-based video player for the NCAA college basketball tournament that started today. In past years, it worked fine in Linux, but now I get an error that says "Technical Foul" and "V001" when I try to view a video. Their documentation and support staff were not able to help me.
I tried this on two separate computers (both running Ubuntu 12.10) in Firefox and Chrome (FF from the default repos, Chrome stable from Google's repo). Both had the same problem. On both computers I also have a Windows XP virtual machine running inside Ubuntu, and March Madness Live works fine in the VM.
So, any ideas? I know Flash is proprietary and the error message is not very revealing. Has anyone at least been able to watch games in Linux?
EDIT: Just to clarify... the ads usually do play successfully, at least in part. The basketball games have never played for me, even for a second. And while there is a place to log in with your cable/satellite TV provider account, it should give you 4 hours free without doing that. Personally I have tried both logged in and not logged in (as some other people replying here also tried) and neither way works in Linux but both ways work in Windows.
