Re: Audio Player - Very Long Load Time

As a followup to @belltown's post, they also posted something about playing audio using the videoplayer instead. I accidentally stumbled on this when developing a channel and found that there were no buffering issues. This may not be ideal for some developers who are doing Audio only. I will also sa...

Re: Anyone figured out fix for mp3 slow buffering issue?

While it's probably not the best solution for developers when playing audio, because they want to use the roAudioPlayer and continue to display the details of the individual episode while playing it, which I've noticed in other Audio only channels, I've found that using the VideoPlayer screen instea...

Re: How to play audio content in SDK videoplayer

Thank you @belltown for posting this. I wish I'd found this a few months ago. I actually wound up using this method for the channels I've been working on accidentally. I was trying to create audio channels using RSS feeds and the MRSS example only used video samples. After trying to modify the examp...

Re: Download or receive the Roku VAST SDK

I found this thread that has a link to a VAST example created by RokuChris at the end of the thread. http://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=66550&p=428398&hilit=VAST+ads#p428398 That thread is from last year but it seems the sample is from 2013. In the PDF it says it's based on the ...

Re: Date conversion

Thank you belltown and agmark for these code samples. I didn't know how to use the roRegex for this type of function either. I'd searched far and wide on how to convert these non-standard dates to ones I could manipulate and I finally came across this post. For my needs I was trying to convert into ...

Re: SDK mrsstemplate example outdated

Thanks for your reply RokuChris. As I mentioned, I had already found the updated MRSS template in a post from 2012. I do realize that these are meant to be a starting point but as you point out, the documentation is sometimes lacking so the examples seem to be the best place for a new developer to f...

SDK mrsstemplate example outdated

I downloaded the SDK back in April of 2014 so I could attempt to develop a channel that played Podcasts. I found the mrss template and it seemed perfect for what I was trying to do, since the podcasts had RSS feeds. It took some time to get it to work as there were some issues, however I finally did...
