Re: A VAST TAG (aka Ad Server Tag) for monetization Testing

Interested, just wanna hear a little more. Is this like a startup ad agency or something, with the intention of selling ads in the near future?  What ads currently play, like real clients ads or a generic dummy/test ad. And, for this beta test period, how long are you looking for us to keep it in. ...

A VAST TAG (aka Ad Server Tag) for monetization Testing

HI, I'm testing this Ad-Tag and I wonder if those of you who have DP channels would like to place it into your Channels to test how/if the video-ads play.   If you decide to try this: I know adverts don't fire until a video has played about 19 minutes or so.  And then MidRoll ads should play every 1...

Re: Ad Income

With a Direct Publisher channel you are allowed to  provide a single ad tag in your Roku Developer Account, the ad timing is preset by Roku, and you need to operate your own ad server (at least a few hundred dollars per month, typically more) to obtain ads from multiple sources in order to get a de...

Re: Ad Server tag won't validate

You're not alone.  I've been contacted by at least a dozen companies, and they don't know how to make a TAG for DP. I've gone through identical trials (just like "37media" ssekrk.) And I've contacted Roku and they did suggest that the Ad-Server use the correct perimeters.   But other that ...

AD SERVERS that RIP YOUR CONTENT and PUBLISH THEIR OWN CHANNELS

Just a heads up for those of your Direct Publishers who are looking for a company that offers Ad-Revenue share via a TAG.  I have been approached by (2) Ad Servers who Publish their own DP channels.  This is a conflict of Interest.  (No I'm not complaining about our Humble Roku-Host's  -- rather I'm...

Re: Free video hosting with JSON creation for ROKU

The only problem I see is that claim rights to stream your content and use in other ways they see fight and have no agreement on revenue sharing in place (though they promise one in the near future). but the rights fact is disturbing. assuming most people are creating thier own content or some othe...

CHANNEL RATINGS all read 0.1 - PLEASE CORRECT!

I don't know what's broken on the Roku website, but today, when I checked (all) of my Channels on the Roku Website, I find that they are currently ALL RATED at 0.1 stars. This really screws me over when I try to direct folks to my Apps... Need I mention: This rating system is incorrect because my ch...

Is it possible to set up MULTIPLE AD TAGS in DP?

Hi, I'm wondering if it's possible to place more than one Ad Tag into the DP monetization option.
For example,
It would be great if the system would read my first Ad Tag as a priority...and then read my second Ad Tag from another company - when/if needed.

Re: How to set Duration for MRSS and/or JSON

Hi DeanLach, I've written software that creates and manages both MRSS and JSON feed files.  I'm in the process of updating the MRSS product.  I'm looking to add an import from other RSS sources.  Unfortunately, that won't help you now.  Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. The Json software sounds goo...

Re: How to set Duration for MRSS and/or JSON

Can you be a bit more specific?  How many items are in your feed?  Would it be possible to get a look at your rss feed? At a minimum, you can use an editor to update the missing fields. Hi, My feed has about 700 titles, but I've managed to cut it into (2) smaller feeds, both have this format: <?xml...
