Re: Free video hosting with JSON creation for ROKU

The only problem I see is that claim rights to stream your content and use in other ways they see fight and have no agreement on revenue sharing in place (though they promise one in the near future). but the rights fact is disturbing. assuming most people are creating thier own content or some other...

Re: Movies or TV Shows on my Roku Channel?

Seems to be an industry secret.. and well kept, this way they keep the little guy down... Been trying to get rights to modern TV for over 20 years now, and as soon as you say streaming, they just don't want anything to do with you... I aquired rights to some vintage tv through an agent years ago.. a...

Re: HLS live channel to Roku

I'm going to assume this has been resolved.. but for future reference.. HLS was not (and I haven't heard that it is yet) supporte by DP. HOWEVER.. I've been doing a live hl feed since DP came around over three years now.. The secret is the video type.... HLS ... instead of MP4 or whatever ... {"...

Re: Branding & Channel Poster Update

LOL, no secret trick can undo the mastery of Caching.. (and poor cache handling)

basically over time it will up date all by it's self.. but that time appears to be randomized..... lol, it's a hella pain in the cheeks below the back.. but is the way it is..

Re: Direct Publisher Feed Validation

Oh yeah, the index file MUST exist, however the .ts files do not, so I suppose (but haven't tried) that you could just create a dummy index file, maybe point it to a live soon jpg or something and then let the live stream replace the file once you start the stream up... maybe you can write a script ...

Re: Direct Publisher Feed Validation

DP doesn't support live feeds... However.... I have a successfull livefeed going through DP.. The problem you are encountering is because Roku checks at what appears to be random times (but everytime when updating a feed) that the url to the video is good. For instance, my live feed is http://mydoma...

Re: How to play a list of videos in a row?
