Re: Side load channels via USB?

That's what I thought. Just wanted to confirm there was not a way to have a Roku app on a USB drive instead.

Thanks

Side load channels via USB?

I've heard that someone was able to side load a channel via USB. Is this at all possible?

Episodic screen - focus thumbnails distorted?

I'm using a flat-episodic-16x9 poster screen and I noticed that when there is focus on an episode, the thumbnail appears distorted a bit. It stretches the image high for some reason.

I didn't see anything in the SDK about this. Is this known behavior? Anything I can do to address it?

Detect when app closed

I'm looking to add some analytics tracking an application and need to track a session start / session end. Session start is easy. But how can I detect when a users closes the app? Do I have any chance to run code before the app actually closes? I'd like to send a session end beacon in that case.

Selling access to channel

I have a few questions that were not covered in the FAQ for Roku Billing Services: 1. I just want to develop a channel that must be purchased with either a one time or monthly recurring fee. Do I need to code anything extra into the app to support this, or will Roku handle everything? 2. If I have a...

Want to change key on app

I have a few old applications I made that are all under the same dev ID. I'd like to separate them out to be on different IDs. Can I just rekey my device, package the application again, and replace it? Will Roku prevent me from replacing the app unless the dev ID matches with what was already there?...

Pixel aspect ratio

In the design guidelines it says that SD artwork should be saved with a pixel aspect ratio of D1/DV NTSC (0.9).

Is this still true? For all SD graphics, I need to set the PAR to D1/DV NTSC (0.9)? If I don't do this, will the images appear squished horizontally?

Re: GoogleAnalytics unique visitor

Absolutely, 100% agree with going w/ the new Measurement Protocol. I just implemented it last night in the Roku for event tracking. Far less code and much more straight forward. No need to reverse engineer what their parameters are, everything is clearly documented. https://developers.google.com/ana...

Re: Prevent registry sharing

Ah yes okay. I do indeed do that already. I was thinking it was all connected through my developer account instead. Thanks

Prevent registry sharing

I know if applications have the same developer ID, then their registry values are shared. Is there a way to prevent this? So that I can create registry data that is only usable by one app, and not all that were developed? I have a registry value that tracks a timestamp of the last time the user open...

Re: GoogleAnalytics unique visitor

The above code is good, but you wouldn't want to run that for every event. The info relating to a visit, such as first time, prev time, and cur time should be set relative to what you consider a visit. Is every event triggered within the Roku app a visit? No. Probably just the initial app launch is....

Live stream delay: HLS vs Smooth Streaming

Does anyone have anything to comment on that? Encoding/packaging aside, which of the two formats will allow for the least amount of delay? I know Smooth Streaming is relatively new on Roku, so there are probably fewer people using it. Assuming that the segment length for each format is 2 seconds. I'...

Re: Video meta data - specifically length of video

I'm working on an analytics plugin that determines the % of video watched. To do that, I need to know the total duration. Rather than report it in the metadata, it would be nice of the SDK exposed it.
