Oops, my fault - I was putting the URL directly into feed URL box instead of into a custom feed. Works now.

Would you be able to provide an example of your "Feed URL"? I am trying to get a live HLS feed working.

Re: Sample Direct Publisher Feed

We are trying the Roku Direct Publishing and we wanted to know if you have an example “feed URL” for “HTTP Live Stream (HLS) Video format”?

I have only found example feed URLs for only video files.

(or something along those lines). It's a known issue as of the firmware update. http://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&...

Re: Splash Screen showing in middle of playback

We have seen it on Roku 3 4200X version 6.1 build 5604. We have only tested on our own private channel so far. We will keep an eye on the Roku stick since we only have Roku 3's in our office.
