Re: Unable to publish using MRSS feed

I'm not sure where the mix up is but anything in that list with an "*" is a required item. Roku is asking that videos have titles, and a description and a category.  To me, it makes sense, it would help people find the videos that we provide.   As far as their justification, you would have...

Re: help!!!!!!! Video Not Loading/retrieving

Have you tried putting the video link in the Roku Stream Tester?  It just takes that specific URL without any channel code around it.  that might let you know if it is a XML/JSON error or something wrong with the video stream itself Here is the page that has the stream tester, it has proven invaluab...

Re: TV show on Roku TV channel but not on Roku stick

JWhite: Just out of curiosity, are the channels the same on the devices that do show it?  I have done a search and found it (assuming this is the BBC show that has been on since 2002) on Amazon Prime (with prime membership) and on Filmrise. There has never been a mention of the show being on a speci...

Re: My Live Streaming Channels Quit on Me

Hi Mike,  Having worked in support for the last 20 years for hosting and SASS companies, I can tell you, it's never my fault.  But that doesn't resolve the issue.   A. Can you pull up the full JSON in a browser? B. Is your CDN or even the hosting of the JSON seeing any errors?  Errors would be in th...

Re: My Live Streaming Channels Quit on Me

Hi again Mike, Sorry that you are going through this.  What I meant about the feed url is this, if you put the feed url into a browser window, do you see the json?  Using either Firefox or Chrome you should be able to see the "pretty" version of the feed JSON. I understand that you have th...

Re: My Live Streaming Channels Quit on Me

Hey BigMike333,

Can you get to the JSON files?  If you got the json url do you see the file?  That would be the first thing that I would check, just thinking here.

Re: Can I use Direct Publisher to connect to an internal server

That's kind of what I was expecting to see. With DP, I don't believe that will work. Check out the DP specifications at this webpage The JSON snippet from my channel that does work with DP looks like: {   "providerName": "This can be pretty much anything.",   "language"...

Re: Can I use Direct Publisher to connect to an internal server

I'm no expert, but a JSON or XML has to be generated for Direct Publisher to work no matter what your server is. I'm not familiar with "Serviio DLNA server" but DP only works with JSON and XML files. As long as the server can serve up HTTP protocol you should be good. What is generating th...

Re: Using blue host - How do you turn off mod_security in Cpanel?

Hi Jason, I quite honestly think that they won't fix it, the lack of functionality is intentional. I never could get a hand coded json to go through when I was trying it on my bluehost account. That was why I went with a dedicated server to host my json.  A VPS may be a better solution. Shared hosti...

Re: Using blue host - How do you turn off mod_security in Cpanel?

Having worked for a couple of hosting companies I can tell you that turning off mod_security is not going the help you stream from Bluehost.  What they didn't tell you is that you are not going to be able to stream from a shared account, you are looking to host the json file you may need to check ou...

Re: Generate Direct Publisher JSON feeds with Wordpress

I doubt that there would be a problem with WordPress 5.  While the changes within WordPress were dramatic, this functionality would not be related to that.  If it generates an error when trying to download the file saying that the file doesn't exist, to me that would indicate that there is some writ...

Re: Generate Direct Publisher JSON feeds with Wordpress

Hi Lifegenius, If you click on the button to download the JSON, does it pull down a file? Another question what version of WordPress is the site using? When you click on the url " https://www.lifegeni.us/wp-json/tv/roku/" I get the error "The requested URL /wp-json/tv/roku/ was not fo...
