Re: json feed not validating

Test channels consume your feed file immediately.  Hence, your changes are effective right away.  Live (release) channels cache your feed file.  Roku refreshes the cache every 6+ hours.  That means any changes will not become effective until the channel feed file has been refreshed.  You can force a...

Re: json feed not validating

At the current time, BIF is not required.  However, you should read the Roku developers blog for channel certification updates.  BIF will be a requirement in March of 2020.

Re: json feed not validating

I don't think the date is causing your problems.  But, per the Json spec, the format should be: The date that the feed was last modified in the ISO 8601 format: {YYYY}-{MM}-{DD}T{hh}:{mm}:{ss}+{TZ} . E.g.: 2015-11-11T22:21:37+00:00 Your date is  "2019-07-10T18:12:32.125Z" . "HdBifUrl&...

Re: json feed not validating

You should take a look at the Roku Json spec. That may shed some light on your issues. BTW...I don't think the format of the date you posted is correct.

Re: json feed not validating

These types of errors are typical if you are managing your feed file "by hand" with an external editor like Notepad.  It's very easy to make syntactical errors that invalidate the feed file.

Re: json feed not validating

Do not assume that if your feed passes a lint test your feed is ok.  The lint test does not check for all errors, especially logic errors.  Without seeing your feed file, I would guess from the errors you show that you've got a misplaced bracket ("[").  If you post your feed file, I can va...

Re: Json Feed. HLS Stream only

tim1607 is correct.  The ID has nothing to do with Google.  Each item in your feed file must have a unique identifier.  The identifier can be any string that you want.  Some developers use a uuid, while others use the name of the video. Here's an answer from the partner forum that may help your HLS ...

Re: Hero layout doesn't work

I've been using the Hero layout for two separate channels.  I haven't had a problem with it.  What exactly is your problem?  What do you see instead?


I can't filter content into distinct categories


Please post your question if you still need help.

I'm not sure what you mean by a "comprehensive list of instructions".  The software does come with a Help file that explains how to use it.  If you've got specific questions, please PM me, or, contact me through the website in my signature.
