Re: Revert to Categories From Feed?

Go to the developers portal and remove them. Then, define them in the feed file with the appropriate tags.

I know I'm late to the party, but, this is the sort of error my software can pick up easily.

Re: Switching Channel from SDK to Direct Publisher

There's nothing in the Developer Portal that acts like the switch you're looking for.  You can replace the 'new' with the 'old', but, not the way you'd like.  It will take some logistics, but, it can be done with what I have mentioned.

Re: Switching Channel from SDK to Direct Publisher

That shouldn't be a concern. Each channel is defined by a unique character code, so, the new channel can't suddenly replace the old one. Consider placing some kind of announcement in the SDK channel that as of a certain date all video will be available in the new channel only. That would give your v...

Re: Switching Channel from SDK to Direct Publisher

I've never done that. But, if I was switching from SDK to Direct Publisher, I would create it as a separate test channel first. Then, when the "kinks" are all worked out, I'd publish it and remove the old SDK channel.

Re: Switching Channel from SDK to Direct Publisher

Direct Publisher uses a feed file to drive the channel.  You'll need to create and manage either an MRSS or JSON feed file that describes your channel content.  Having said that, you should be aware that Direct Publisher does not currently support a subscription model.

Re: JSON HLS live feed ,, still wont work

Chris...Here's what the Json Feed Manager reports when opening your feed file: Could not convert string to integer: 99:00:00. Path 'shortFormVideos[0].content.duration', line 29, position 22. Empty 'category' object found in feed file. It looks like you tried to code the file by hand.  Correct the m...

Re: Feed ingesting for new, unpublished channel - not working

I took a look at your feed file.  While it passes Json validation (ie. it is a valid Json tree), it may not pass Roku validation because you have some extraneous json objects in your feed file.  For example, your feed contains "channelDescription" and "channelIcon" objects that a...

Re: Feed ingesting for new, unpublished channel - not working

Try using a different browser and clearing the cache. Are you sure you don't have feed errors?

Re: Rearrange Categories

In my opinion, if you are using Json for your feed, it is much easier to control your channel attributes through the feed file than by using the developer portal. That includes reordering categories. The developer portal can be quirky at times.
