Re: Screensavers don't work when using roScreen

This is expected behavior. Because of the limited graphics memory, we don't launch a custom screen saver when the current channel is using an roScreen. The blank screen screensaver is automatically launched instead.

Re: Videos Cut Short by 2-5 seconds

If your audio and video are not the same length, the Roku will stop playback when the first track ends. The workaround would be to make the audio and video tracks the same length (insert white noise are black slate as appropriate to the end of the short track).

Re: Live streaming example

craigvansant-

The Roku does not support RTMP. It also does not support control of the buffering on the box. The amount of required buffering is calculated automatically by the Roku.

The only way to do live streaming on the Roku is with HLS.

Re: manifest file

mixe,

Those parameters aren't valid in the manifest. We do have fields like that in the channel store and when you submit your channel for publishing you will see where you will enter them on the developer site.

Re: Channel Pkg Upload Error

Please see the Developer Guide Section 7.3 for an explanation on how to use the SDK Makefiles for creating your zip.

If creating by hand take care to make the top-level directory contain:

Re: Roku feed cache

No. In fact the roXMLElement.Parse() only takes a string that is the contents of the XML. You could of course break your XML down into self-contained XML strings that you manage and parse separately. The videoplayer sample app breaks the XML up into different files. Which would be a good practice wh...

Re: 302 header bug

From the linked thread it sounds like you have a work-around as well.... Like the theEndless said, use a HEAD request as a workaround for looking at responses without following the redirect. There is not a good workaround for using the same technique on a POST (short of using the new v3.0 roStreamSo...

Re: Setting up initial buffer for HLS Stream

There is no way for you to specify the buffer time. However, if you know what the highest bitrate in your HLS variant list is, you could set it to that. This is currently required as a workaround for a Roku bug if the highest bitrate is less than 1.5 Mbps.

Re: How to implement rendezvous style registration?

That sounds right to me.... Have you looked at the 'register' example in the SDK. Open the source and read the comments about how to replace hard coded methods with queries to your server. You will have to implement the server side of the solution yourself by integrating with your user database. --K...
