Re: Rokagram not approved by Instagram any longer

Looks like Roku PHOTOS has the same problem as Rokagram. I think there's an Instagram-based screensaver out there too that is probably dead in the water as well. Instagram put all unapproved apps into "Sandbox mode" on June 1, 2016. Sandbox mode is extremely limited and intended really for...

Re: Rokagram not approved by Instagram any longer

Great question. I wasn't aware that that even existed.

Rokagram not approved by Instagram any longer

For those of you who may be wondering why Rokagram no longer works, it's because Instagram no longer allows use of their API except for a few narrowly defined use cases. On June 1, they started enforcing this policy which means the Rokagram channel (of which I am the developer) really has not way to...

Re: Picasa web albums

If nobody else wants to do it, I might take a crack at it. Google Photos is a pretty impressive offering and the old PWA API still seems to be able to get at most of the underlying data model.

Re: Certs not accepted?

That looks pretty authoritative to me. I hope there's a fix or a workaround forthcoming. I suspect over time there will be more and more problems as various services tighten up their security.

Re: Certs not accepted?

Thanks @belltown for referencing the earlier post. I patched my channel by doing a string replace of "https" with "http" for the CDN URLs (Instagram/Facebook CDN in my case), but I've been nervous ever since that this will stop working since it relies on the CDN allowing HTTP whi...

Re: roPosterScreen / roSlideshow can't load Instagram images

Yes.. thanks. I patched up my channel with a hack to convert the URL's from HTTPS to HTTP, but who knows how long that will work.

Add roImageCanvas to the list of components that has the same bug.

Re: roPosterScreen / roSlideshow can't load Instagram images

Thanks Veeta. Adding the the puzzle is the fact that roPosterScreen does work for some HTTPS images. In my case some of the Instagram photos are hosted on a Akami CDN and those work fine (generally the user profile pics). It looks like the main photo content moved to a different CDN technology and t...

Re: roPosterScreen / roSlideshow can't load Instagram images

ifHttpAgent seams to have a (new?) call: SetCertificatesDepth(depth as Integer)

Not sure what it does or what a good value would be.

roSlideShow also has the issue FWIW

Re: roPosterScreen / roSlideshow can't load Instagram images

Thanks @belltown. Yes.. roUrlTransfer works fine. This is a head scratcher. I might try that https -> http trick, but I'm afraid that won't work forever.

roPosterScreen / roSlideshow can't load Instagram images

My channel, Rokagram, started having trouble yesterday. I think I've debugged it down to the fact that the URL's returned from the Instagram API for images are now all HTTPS, but it's not just that. The CDN they are hosted on seems to cause problems for components like roPosterScreen and roSlideShow...

Push Notification URL in developer console

Have I just not seen this all along? Developer Home > Web API Settings > Push Notification URL Desc: Please provide a URL to receive account activity notifications (e.g. purchases, subscription cancellations, reversals, etc.). I would definitely be interested in receiving such notifications, but I n...
