Re: Roku Development - is it so "hot"?

From our side of things it looks like there is a fairly significant demand for good developers and good development shops at the moment.

Re: Ground Control to SGt Node: assign event/functions, how?

Hmm - what about the thing I posted yesterday- perhaps I need to reread your questions, but I think that might be a similar thing to what you are asking - how to create and add nodes to a scenegraph node from the main brightscript thread?

Re: Ground Control to SGt Node: assign event/functions, how?

It would probably be good for me to revise and clarify the section of documentation that got the guy all “hot and bothered”, since it already needs some clarification anyway. By “BrightScript”, I meant “BrightScript within an XML component file <script> element CDATA section”, not the “main BrightS...

Re: Subtitles out of sync

Here is some engineering feedback for a different partner on what might be a similar problem, sanitized for public consumption: The problem is in the content, the playlist does not match the real video, and the mismatch buildup as we progress in the movie for 24.97fps content. 25fps content should b...

Re: Create animation in BrightScript?

Engineering says: Animaton nodes have to be associated with a Scene in order to work. If they are created in the scene graph render thread, that happens by default. If you create them in the main Brightscript thread or a task thread, it doesn’t. In that case, parenting the Animation node to any node...

Re: Extending a scene graph poster node

Hi, Here's what Engineering has to say: My guess is that the height of the RowList rows is not correct. The height of the rows is used to set a clipping rectangle for the items, so I think the problem is that the labels underneath the posters are being clipped. If all the rows have the same size, th...

Re: Trace HTTPS api calls for Roku app in Charles

Try using object.SetCertificatesFile("pkg:/myCharlesCertificateFile.crt") - you can do this with any component that implements ifHttpAgent

so a videoplayer object:

vid=createobject("RoVideoPlayer")
vid.SetCertificatesFile("pkg:/myCharlesCertificateFile.crt")

Re: How can I Manage My In-Channel Products?

Hi Gil, you need to send your W9 or W-8BEN form (if not in USA) to enrollment [at] roku.com. You might also copy developer [at] roku.com in case the first email somehow doesn't get to where it is supposed to go.

Re: Developing SceneGraph app - bricked 2 boxes

The Roku 4 does have a button on the bottom, in the Rubber area, near the front, it should say "Reset" on it. Can you private message me a dropbox or other link to download a zip that reproduces the problem?

Thanks,

Re: Video in Sliding Panels

If you would like, please forward us the Serial Number from the Settings/System/About page on the two devices (send via Private Message), note which one is the problematic one and the channel ID of the channel and we can look if we have a log of the crashes and try to identify the cause.

Re: The troubled^ developer.roku.com

I've asked the web team to monitor this thread, so as you encounter issues with Developer.Roku.com please post them to this thread. I'm going to rename it something a little bit nicer though.

Re: New project Prince of Persia (open source available)

Might just be something that happens the first time the app is run, reproduced by accident after re-installing the channel:

Here is a video of it with debug turned on, hope this helps.

edit: figured out how to repro it successfully multiple times: video with debug on.
