Re: SampleVideoPlayer - Resume Playing problem

I have resolved this problem. And, here's what I learned. I, like others before me, made the assumption that the Sample Video Player template is bug free. It is not. After digging deeper into the code, I discovered that my problem with the Resume button always showing up was caused by the code. The ...

SampleVideoPlayer - Resume Playing problem

I seemed to have run into the same problem reported in this earlier post - " Help with videoplayer resume playing functionality ".  I, too, designed my channel around the same sample and have run into the same issue(s).  I tried the code changes mentioned in the post, but, they don't seem ...

Re: Code Performance and Video Error

Some follow up....

I was able to resolve issue one.  I ran the video through Nero Recode and it produce an mp4 file that I was able to play through the Roku stick.  Now, my only problem is issue two, the performance is pretty poor when clicking on the screen.

Code Performance and Video Error

I'm building a channel from the SampleVideoPlayer.  I've run into two issues that have me stumped. Issue 1: A friend gave me permission to use some of his videos on my channel.  His videos are currently stored on YouTube.  I downloaded them using a free online service that seemed to work since I can...

Getting Started with Ad Framework

I've read some posts on the forum.  In particular, the sticky post for "Enabling your Channel for Video Ads".  I've tried to contact Roku at two email addresses that do not appear to be active: jcarter@roku.com and advertising@roku.com . Roku does not make it easy to get the necessary info...

Re: Amazon S3 CloudFront Access

Squirreltown, can you elaborate on how you specified "Make Public"?  Was that for ColudFront, S3, or, both?  What flags did you have to set?

Amazon S3 CloudFront Access

I've set up an Amazon S3 bucket for my channel.  I then linked it to a CloudFront distribution.  I defined the distribution with secure access and added a generic user with "read" access.  The piece I'm missing is how do I specify credentials to the S3 distribution from my Roku channel?  I...

Re: Content Delivery Platform

With a bit more research, I was able to determine that CloudFlare does not support video files.  The list of file types it does support is listed here.

Content Delivery Platform

I've been researching what platform to use to serve video files.  I came across this post .  I, like many others, would like to host videos on the most cost effect basis since I do not have the support of a revenue stream.  While the post was helpful, it is somewhat dated, I think.  I'm looking for ...

Video Playback Source

I apologize up front for a somewhat basic question, but, I am in the process of developing my first channel.  I've got a question regarding how to specify the source for video playback in my xml meta files.  What I've done to this point: ⋅ I copied an existing sample project and mocked it ...

Re: Localhost as Server?

Thanks for all the replies.  I found a much easier approach.  I have a Synology NAS that allows me to set up web sites.  I built a test web site on the NAS and loaded up some videos.  I then pointed my code to the NAS web site and I am able to test.  This, for me, is a better approach than using loc...

Localhost as Server?

I've started to develop my first channel and I've based it off one of the examples. In going through the sample code, I noticed references to resources on Roku servers. I plan to set up my own server on a hosting site, but, I don't' have one at the moment. I do, however, have an Apache localhost ser...

I've got some very basic initial questions. I have plenty of experience developing software on various platforms and had an idea about developing a channel. Can someone help with: 1. I don't own the content, or, the server where the content is located. However, the content is public. Does this precl...
