Re: JSON file help

Most everyone here creates their on JSON file without the aid of Instant TV.  I am not sure if there is anyone here that will do it for you but creating the JSON file using the specs isn't that difficult.  Check it out and if you need any help along the way feel free to post here.

Re: Roku using Vimeo external link

CsR, the link provided in the JSON file cannot be read externally which is why you are getting "No valid items were found in the feed".  Switch to the HLS link or work with Vimeo to make the link work externally.

Re: Json File "Series" sample feed

Closed captioning is not required even though the documentation says it is.

Re: Feed URL Status - what causes errors

We typically have 3-4 false errors on every update. There is no rhyme or reason as to which will "fail". On the next update, same videos, there will be new "errors" and the old errors are gone. We have just accepted it as normal behavior and not spent too much time worrying about...

Re: Help needed - using Vimeo external link

Thank you for the update/clarification Pam.

I think most of us (at least I am not) are not aware that we need to email partnersuccess@roku.com if we are submitting an update to our previously approved channel.

Re: Help needed - using Vimeo external link

Congrats! I would send a private message to RokuPam or RokuChrisT and tell them you are waiting for your channel to be approved. The last I heard there was a bug in their notification system. You put all of your movie elements in one JSON file. I have over 500 in my one file. You can still use myjso...

Re: Help needed - using Vimeo external link

No, if you take your link of the video and try to open it in a browser it does not open: https://player.vimeo.com/external/214294093.hd.mp4?s=8f369a8501619856ae1d0369f987e4afd01a8ca2\u0026profile_id=119 It comes up "Sorry We’re having a little trouble."  I am not sure you are using the cor...

Re: Help needed - using Vimeo external link

Have you tried using the HLS feed links from Vimeo Pro instead of the MP4?  I don't use Vimeo/Vimeo Pro at all so I am limited in the help I can provide.  I know many others here use Vimeo with great success.

Re: Caption/Subtitle requirement

There are many errors listed in the feed specifications.

If have 534 movies in my Direct Publisher JSON file and none of them have captions defined.

Try not defining the caption element and see what happens.

Re: ERROR: Unable to download from feedUrl.

I am not sure. I've never had to use it as all of the hosting companies I have worked with have no issue disabling ModSecurity.

Others on here would know better.

Enjoy!

Re: ERROR: Unable to download from feedUrl.

HostGator is just being difficult. Have them look at your logs for 406 errors and tell them it needs to be fixed. You can also try putting the following in your .htaccess file: <IfModule mod_security.c> SecFilterEngine Off SecFilterScanPOST Off </IfModule> You MIGHT have better luck with HostGator d...
