Re: Generate Direct Publisher JSON feeds with Wordpress

Hi Lifegenius, If you click on the button to download the JSON, does it pull down a file? Another question what version of WordPress is the site using? When you click on the url " https://www.lifegeni.us/wp-json/tv/roku/" I get the error "The requested URL /wp-json/tv/roku/ was not fo...

Could this be a permissions issue with your video hosting service?

That would be my thought also.  It could also be a bandwidth limitation with the hosting company.

Re: Licensing content.

Thanks Missrunt, I have found a lot of content and am working on some of the public domain items that you suggest.  I'm just trying to add some very specific content that I don't want to get one of those nasty legal letters in my inbox telling me that I have violated some copyright law. When there i...

Licensing content.

I have a question that I don't know if any one can answer but here goes: I am trying to find out how to get the syndication rights to some old television shows that are being broadcast on some television channels right now.  I have attempted to reach out to the black hole email addresses related to ...

Re: Publisher Branding Submit Form Error

Hi Missrunt, I have had times when setting up a channel where it gets stuck in kind of a cached status.  It's like no matter what you do it doesn't take any changes. What I have done is to use a new json file for the URL , force it to accept that one, then change it back to the one that you are maki...

Re: MRSS - Display poster/background image on audio-only feed

Hi Omega 1,  It looks like  http://www.rssboard.org/media-rss  is more of an industry standard, rather than a Roku specific article.  The Roku instructions for an MRSS feed is locate here  https://github.com/rokudev/feed-specifications/blob/master/mrss-feed-specification.md . One thing that I have f...

Re: Approval for Live?

I actually created a video for each of the pieces of music in my channel. I haven't done one with just straight MP3's yet, but that is coming soon.
I just sent you PM, so you can take a look.

Re: My Ads are not running

I don't think there is a requirement for viewership hours before ads run.  You have the option to use Roku or a third party for your ads. With either one, it takes a few days before ads will appear. And, there's no guarantee that an ad will run during a requested ad break.  Most of us use third par...

Re: My Ads are not running

Hi, Ads won't just automatically run, unless you have several thousand hours of viewing time per month.  There is a minimum number of hours the people have to view your channel before advertising will be started.  I think that it is several thousand hours of monthly viewing before ads start to run. ...

Hi NewChannel,

Congrats on the new channel, newchannel...  :D
The last channel that I put up, I also got the time estimate of "2 Weeks" but it was less than 24 hours.  I think that it really depends on what is cooking and how many folks have submitted new channels.
