[Private Channel] Justin.tv (JUSTINTV) - Updated 12/6/2012

Postby TheEndless » Sat Jan 22, 2011 4:44 pm

The channel never had an official thread, so I thought I'd start one with this update. The original discussion can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=32176

Justin.tv recently added some high definition and higher bitrate streams to their Roku compatible streams. At the moment, most of these are restricted to the Featured and Gaming genres, but that may expand in the future. This new update includes support for those higher bitrate streams as well as some additional tweaks (ex. optimization of stream initialization, ability to changed streams from the stream details screen, general optimization).

If you already have the channel installed, a visit to the channel store should automatically download the update. If you don't currently have the channel installed, you can do so via this link: https://owner.roku.com/add/JustinTV

You can also visit my website for information on each of my channels: http://www.permanence.com/roku
I've also set up a Twitter account for my development updates, if you're interested: http://www.twitter.com/TheEndlessDev

Thanks!

One of my favorite Justintv stations on the PC is a wildearth.tv, broadcast live from a South Africa preserve where the game ranger has a web cam and talks and answers questions. Is there a way we could get that on Justintv on Roku?

It's actually already on there, though it doesn't have a very high quality stream. It's on page two under the Animals category at the moment (or you can search for "wildearth"), though it seems Justin.tv is having some issues with their system right now, so I can't get it to play. I'd recommend finding it, adding it to your favorites, and trying it again later.

Okay. I was trying to watch it on PC and it was glitching. When not glitching, it's shocking how good the quality is live from the safari using Justintv on PC. I email questions to the ranger and he answers live using my name within 2-3 minutes usually.

Since loading the update, I can't play shows in my "Favorites." I have to go to each location's folder to play them.

Code: Select all
[u]I watched that show a couple of times and it seemed as though the vid feed would be fine while he was stationary but if he was on the move it was like he hit deadspots and the vid would miss a few frames.  Not much of a problem tho, good action program.[/u]

Newbie here with the Roku and Justin.tv, so forgive me if my question has already been answered.

There's a particular channel that I've grown fond of on justin.tv. When I stream it on my computer, it's HD or near HD quality. In fact, it looks spectacular. When I stream that same channel on my TV via the Roku the resolution is very poor (i.e. one dot). Shouldn't the quality be comparable since it's the same stream?

I'm running version 1.8 of the private channel on my Roku.

Any insight would be appreciated. TIA.

The quality is lower on Roku because the only Roku-compatible streams are the iPhone/iPad ones, which are lower bitrate/resolution than the ones you are using on the pc.

I do notice that the channel is a bit "glitchier" on the roku2, though. I can watch the franktaylorlifecast fine on my older HD model, but on the new XD, it won't always connect. Same is true for other streams as well.
