Re: Channel freezes at startup splash screen...

Ok, here's a function from belltown that will check the validity of a url: http://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=47659&hilit=getadurl&start=30#p327128 Just add your backup url in the "else" statement and if your first feed fails it will use your backup. mark

Re: Channel freezes at startup splash screen...

Sure. I'm stuck with just my phone for the time being but I can post a simple function when I get back unless someone beats me to it. Basically it just uses asyncgettostring to get the response code. If the response is not 200 then move on to the secondary feed. You could also pop up a one line dial...

Re: Channel freezes at startup splash screen...

You could also call a secondary xml feed if the first one returns as invalid. It seems doubtful that it's the channel if it's working most of the time, but maybe you want to pop up a can't connect at this time message.

Help with integers

I'm retrieving some json and parsing it. The items consist of an id, name and image. Not sure why but the id is not being parsed into an int. I'm getting data returned as follows when I print each item from the returned parsejson(raw): name: Video shortDescription: My video thumbnailURL: http://.......

Re: roscreen grid

I want to chime in and thank all of you for contributing to this discussion and sharing your code! It's something I've wanted to explore but haven't had the time to start learning everything required to put a useful roscreen together to display actual content. There's a lot to learn and I'm not sure...

Re: CDN recommendations for S3

Did a little googling, here are a couple of open source CMS that claim to work with S3: http://mediadrop.net/ http://www.razuna.org/ - Joel Many thanks Joel! I've been googling too and didn't hit either of those. In fact I wasn't getting much joy at all. Kinda scratching my head wondering what I wa...

CDN recommendations for S3

I'm looking for some recommendations for a relatively easy/low cost solution to provide content management for multiple videos stored on Amazon S3. What would be a good solution(s) to storing and serving the metadata for several hundred videos that are available on S3? Of course, the content will in...

Re: No Feed Tag Found

There's no "feed" tag in your feed so hence the error. You want to parse the enclosure tag to get the feed "url". I'm not well versed on the videoplayer template that you're using, but I'm not sure that's the template for your project (especially your first project). I would sugg...

Re: Image easing

Sounds like we have a need for a new roScreen example channel(s) for those of us interested in learning more about exploiting this screen. I've dabbled with the roScreen but much is still foreign. I think a few more working examples would be helpful.

Re: Roku, A Very Slow Streaming Player

All other English channels are working fine.Only with the Tamil Channels this problems are raising. :cry: You indicate that your problems are only with the Tamil channels, so I'm inclined to think it's a problem with their channel or the streams they are providing.

Re: MRSS Template & Play/Resume

VAST may be overkill for your application, but you could certainly have your own ad play before the main content is played. Look at the example code you have and you'll see how the logic works. You should be able to adapt the videoplayer to grab and play your own video.

Re: "Package File" from developer page

Ironically I asked this very question several days ago. I'm told its only there in case you need a backup and can't be unencrypted. I'd much prefer a zip file that could be unencrypted using the package password, but that's not the case. It would have come in handy when I was at a location without t...
