Re: Scene Graph Video - Multiple Streams

Hi Gabriel, If you are playing mp4 files, you would hand the video node an array of streams. This on the Content Metadata page in our docs: Video={} Video.streams=[{url : "http://me.com/x-384.mp4"                       bitrate : 384                       quality : false                    ...

Re: Non English/Latin Languages support

Hi. I have an open ticket on this with our SceneGraph engineering team. At present it appears that support for 3rd party fonts for subtitles was inadvertently left out of RokuSceneGraph, So for now, the only approach that I can recommend is to use roVideoPlayer with roCaptionRenderer to render your ...

Is your PayPal address up to date?

Attention Developers: If you have a Roku Billed channel, please double check that you have a PayPal address set up in the developer portal.

Re: Unique Channel Store Name

One can only change the public facing name - via the various localized name fields, use English for English speaking localization. The name you created the channel under will still be there. The only way as I understand it to change the name on all sides (both what the public sees and what you see) ...

Re: Observing tearing artifacts on Roku-4 with 4k @ 60fps HEVC stream

This bug is still under investigation, and currently believed to be specific to the Roku 4 platform (i.e software bug on that hardware).

Re: mm_icon_focus_fhd resolution?

We don't require an mm_icon_focus_fhd and hopefully we will eventually stop requiring the HD and SD focus images in the .pkg file as they are only of slight use. I believe the reference in that linked github doc to be an error.

Re: How Do I Start Developing a Channel?

Did you install via the instructions on the Blog: https://blog.roku.com/developer/2016/04/20/roku-eclipse-plugin/ That should get you the latest plugin. When you create a new project you have the option to select some scenegraph templates. Note that you might have to stretch the dialog box to see ev...

Re: EPG Grid Documentation

EPG Grid docs were removed due to intellectual property issues surrounding the EPG Grid.

I suggest you use SceneGraph to create a screen of your own unique design to convey schedule information to your users.

Re: Is offering a free app with an upgrade (using doUpgrade()) still allowed?

come there is no notice to that extent in the documentation? :oops:I um err. uh... :oops: we axed it as part of reworking the developer agreements near the end of last year.

Re: Is offering a free app with an upgrade (using doUpgrade()) still allowed?

I'm not sure if it is still possible to implement this in a channel, but we definitely don't want developers to use this functionality. We want you to use in-app subscription products instead, and the free trial model works quite well as a replacement for this functionality, though you can also have...
