Re: WebVVT Language Bug

The code you posted had a typo, setting the track to "webvvt/4" instead of "webvtt/4"... was that in your test code?

Re: Subtitles are not retained on the O.S8.2 on Roku TV

Can you post a sample of your SRT files?  I'd fixed an issue with TTML timestamp parsing for 8.2/9.0, but hadn't touched the SRT parser.  Is your app using SDK1 or SceneGraph?

Re: font:, pkg:, and theme: oh my

The "font:" URI scheme can only be used to lookup a pre-installed system font; there's no mechanism to extend it to other fonts.

Re: Closed Caption/Subtitle support

The WebVTT parser does handle position, line, and align directives and try to use them in the painter code that draws those subtitles.  However, I think you've uncovered a bug in the interaction between the alignment and position values.  It looks like we're using the line and position values to set...

Re: Using custom fonts (.ttf files) in XML

Using a colon in the filename might be a problem and prevent the system from opening the file.  There are filename checks in the Roku OS to filter out things that affect FAT filesystems, and colon is a reserved character there.

Re: scaling does not work on Labels

Which version of the Roku Express is this?  The 3700/3710 model from 2016 or the 3900/3910 model from 2017?  This might help if determining if the bug is related to the device's internal graphics implementation.

Re: Deep linking URL isn't working

From the docs at https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/Deep+Linking, is your channel looking for args[contentID] and args[mediaType] and using it to change it's behavior?  Can you add logging code to show those in the Brightscript console to make sure they're what you expect?

Re: Roku TCL 49" TV cannot connect to android

Casting working over a WiFi Direct connection, but the Roku app uses the Wifi network you've got setup at your home.  If you can't use IP address, can you check and see that your phone is connected to the same WiFi network?  Also, can you check the TV settings and see if the "System/Advanced/Co...

Re: DeepLinking - After playback behaviour

Yes, there's no need to exit after a deep linked video is played, your app can go to its main screen or another landing screen, such as suggestions for other videos.

Re: MPEG2 support: patent expires worldwide, almost

There is no support in the Roku codebase for decoding WTV files.  They would need to be re-containerized into a supported format like MKV or TS for playback.
