Re: DASH stream playback with subtitles not working/displayed

We recently switched from smooth streams with embedded captions to dash streams with sideloaded captions and are experiencing similar problems. The captions will display intermittently, and not at all on some devices. It's been difficult to nail down exactly which devices don't display them 100% of ...

Embedded subtitle language defaults to English in video dialog

We are moving away from using sideloaded subtitles to using subtitles embedded in our hls streams. This appears to work great on most devices, but we're seeing some strange behavior on older Roku 2 and Roku 3 models (specifically 4200X and 3100X, all on v8.1). Those players use the older style setti...

9-patch button backgrounds

I've been playing with trying to get 9-patch images to work for button backgrounds, namely buttons with rounded corners. Does anyone know if this is possible, and if so what tweaks did you have to do to the image and/or button to get it to work?

Crash Reports

There used to be access to a crash reports through the developer dashboard, was that tool removed?

If so, does anyone know of any way to catch a crash to report it, or any third party tools that allow crash reporting on roku channels?

Observing FF/REW position in custom video UI

I'm working on a custom UI for a video node and ran into an issue. When seeking I can't figure out a reliable way to get the seek position to update the progressbar as the user seeks.
Does anyone know a good way to update a custom progressbar during seeking?

Re: audioTrack and availableAudioTracks never populate

For anyone else who stumbles on this issue I received this feedback from RokuCo: We've identified this issue as a firmware bug and at its current prioritization, it set to be fixed in our Spring release. Let me know if I can help with anything else. So looks like we'll have to wait a few months ...

audioTrack and availableAudioTracks never populate

We're working on adding some analytics about how users are viewing our content. We want to record the audio language that users are selecting on our videos as we provide English and Spanish tracks in our smoothstreams. It appears that the audioTrack and availableAudioTrack fields on the video node a...

Large image load threshold?

We're currently working on a channel that relies heavily on displaying large, detailed images to the user. While working on a POC I noticed that images will fail to load if they are dimensionally large or their file size is larger than 1MB. Is this intended behavior, and if so what is the file size ...

Re: Video fails on v7.6 Roku 3 devices

We also saw this on Roku model 4400x, so it's not confined to Roku 3 devices.

Video fails on v7.6 Roku 3 devices

We're developing a new channel and finished up working on the video player weeks ago. We're using a video node and playing smoothstream with playready drm streams. One of our engineers encountered a problem with video play on his Roku 3 at home; videos all fail instantly with the following error inf...

Re: Deep linking Doubt

Deep linking is a way to jump directly to a particular screen/episode/series/whatever from outside of the channel itself. The two main use cases on Roku are banner ads and Roku universal search. Deep linking can be used to navigate directly to a given piece of content (series, episode) that is refer...

Re: GetPartialUserData not working in private channel

I would agree with you, but we have private channels running on another developer account that use similar code and work as intended.
