Re: Regression failure for captions after firmware update

I don't use DASH or TTML.  But single MP4 file encoding with SRT still works with firmware 8.0+ (Roku3, 8.0.0 Build 4143-04).  There are only a handful of people doing what you're doing and posting on these forums, you might try messaging some of them or asking partners@roku.com for some guidance.

Re: KeyboardDialog, edit long lines? (longer than the Dialog's TextEditBox)

If it is a long url, another option would be to tell the user to enter it into tinyurl.com and then they will have a much shorter url to type in, perhaps with a button or pre-populated partial entry for https://tinyurl.com/  and then they just need to enter the code. Or allow them to upload a short ...

Re: KeyboardDialog, edit long lines? (longer than the Dialog's TextEditBox)

You could use multiple dialogs - enter first 5 letters, enter next 5 letters, etc etc.  Otherwise you are going to require a custom keyboard component or custom code to do what you want to do. Think of your user - do you want them to type manuscripts, pages of text into the app using the roku remote...

Re: Increase roURLTransfer timeout

Timeouts for the render thread are 3 seconds.  Timeouts for the task thread are 30 seconds.  Run the rourltransfer in a task thread.

Re: Rotate Video

While Roku might be able to do this through some brightscript transposition 'magic', to do this work for every frame of video might be too demanding for lower end roku hardware.  Why not simply reencode the video to fix it, or hold your camera at the correct orientation when filming to begin with? F...

Re: Does ECP Input allow me to send any commands I want?

Perhaps they haven't kept up on changes since Roku Firmware 3.0 was released. Since Firmware version 3.0: • input enables a developer to send custom events to their Brightscript application. It takes a user defined list of name-value pairs sent as query string uri parameters.... blah blah blah... I'...

Re: What is the m variable?

It's all about scope.  Global and Local. variablename="hello" will ONLY apply to the existing function within the existing component.  Of course you can call external component functions but that complicates matters for this explanation, and external references to functions will give you c...

Re: hasfocus() bug?

Note in the code above, the Search Button has a higher z-order in creation than the mini keyboard. First it draws a black rectangle background for the text entry box Second it draws the Search Button Third it draws the mini Keyboard on top of both of those It could be your code is correct but the or...

Re: hasfocus() bug?

Your code will fail if m.searchBtn is out of scope or is being seen as the wrong type. You can test this by placing a STOP after print "KEYBOARD FOCUS: "; m.miniKeyboard.hasFocus() and then do a print m.searchBtn in the debugger to see what it thinks it is. What you're trying to do does wo...

Re: Multiple videos in SceneGraph

Not possible, however you could merge both videos into the same video file - ie encode an mp4 or hls stream with two feeds into one. Sort of like this?
