Re: Regression failure for captions after firmware update

Bumping this because there has to be other people sideloading subtitle tracks with MP4 video.

If you have it working please let me know how.

Regression failure for captions after firmware update

Our channel was working well before the 8.0 firmware update.  We are using side loaded captions (TTML) with DASH mp4 content. we are settings  content.subtitletracks = [{     language: "en"     trackname: "https://path-to-ttml-file.ttml" }] I see that they now use the iso639 3 ch...

Right align items in a LayoutGroup

I can't seem to figure out this basic concept.  In the example below the Text can vary in width but the PosterImage is only 40px wide. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------                                                                              ...

I just ran into the same thing.  Seems like a bug in BS.

Re: Handling / Throwing errors

Thanks Tim, I have chosen to use multiple small tasks that all use some helper functions like the one above.  Even if I read the response body and return that from the above function, the caller would not know if it was an error or not.  I am now thinking about returning a object with a status and r...

Handling / Throwing errors

I am trying to figure out the best way to have reusable code with different error conditions.  Below is a sample of a reusable function to execute network requests.  In most languages you can throw/catch errors.  There is nothing like that in BS.  So what do you do when you get a non 2xx message bac...

Re: Widevine example

Are you asking about widevine classic?  Or are you now using DASH (MPD)?

Re: Left / right navigation when ButtonGroup layoutDirection = horiz

I have not posted it anywhere but I could.  I ended up not even using the Button component from Roku.  I made my own with rectangles and text nodes as I wanted to apply different colors for the active and non-active states.

Certification/onboard process

We are about to try and publish our first application for our service. Should we create a new developer account for the company?  I don't want to tie the channel to a personal roku account. Also are we able to update the channel after we submit it for certification? PS I tried to use https://develop...

Stop task when node is no longer available

I have a panel within a panelset that uses a timer to refresh itself.  I can't figure out a way to start this on init() and then stop when the panel has been replaced.

Any ideas?

Best way to prevent double clicks

I have a grid of titles inside of a panelset.  When you select a title it will append a panel to display that titles detail information.  If you double click the "ok" button on that grid it will append two detail panels.

What is the best way to prevent this?

Re: Dynamically update TargetList / TargetGroup

So there seems to be so much wrong with the TargetGroup. I have tried both ways that you suggested and while the list is updated in both cases the TargetGroup fails to update it's internal focusIndex. So after I have deleted all of the content nodes and replaced them the focus could still be on item...

Re: Dynamically update TargetList / TargetGroup

Re-creating the TargetList actually works but you see a pretty bad flicker.

I really wish that the Roku dev team would at least comment on issues like this.  I think I have created 10+ posts in the forums and they never seem to contribute.
