Try renaming your feed file and re-submitting it.

Re: Error: Thumbnail must be 16x9 aspect ratio, at least 800w x 450h, and either in JPG or PNG format.

I don't know if it's a cut and past issue, but the feed you posted is missing a closing ']' and '}'.

Also, there have been other reports of feed files suddenly not ingesting during the Roku outage dates.  You might want to try renaming your feed file and trying again.

Re: Unable to publish using MRSS feed

Durango2018...you have the same problem as the original poster of this thread.  Your feed file does not conform to the Roku MRSS spec.  You'll need to pay strict attention to what the spec accepts before you can publish your channel.

Re: JSON Nightmare

I'm not sure you're still looking for help, but, I found your post and used the software I wrote to validate your feed file.  You have several problems with the 'bitRate' field on your shortFormVideos.  They are actually integers and not 'float' values.  For future reference, your feed file is repre...

Re: Error: Unable to download from feedURL

Your feed URL points to what looks like a website and not a CDN (Content Delivery Network).  Make sure that you provide the correct permissions for outside access to your file(s).

Re: Thumbnail could not be downloaded / Required video url is unreachable.

Could this be a permissions issue with your video hosting service?

Re: Unable to publish using MRSS feed

Rafael,

Please compare your feed sample with what the MRSS spec expects.  Your sample is not compatible with the spec.  For example, your 'pubDate' does not conform to the spec.  The Roku MRSS spec seems to be less forgiving, so, you really need to pay attention to what it expects.

Re: Transport-error / Unknown ERROR

You can try Support, but, most people on this forum will tell you that Roku support is slow to respond if at all.  I found that I get better help from others on this forum.  If you have a problem, post here.  More than likely someone will be able to help you. Btw...I detected your error by loading y...

Re: Unable to publish using MRSS feed

It looks like you're trying to use a feed file from another system (Apple TV?) to create your channel.  As such, the feed file does not conform to the Roku MRSS spec.  Take a look at some of the samples on the forum, or the Roku documentation.

Please recheck the spec. Your category object does not conform to the spec.

Re: Feed URL problems

Have you tried:

Clearing your browser cache?
Using a different browser?

This may be a problem on the Roku developer platform.

Re: MRSS - Display poster/background image on audio-only feed

Is this for Direct Publisher? Is so, you should be using the Roku mrss spec. That spec supplies a "media:thumbnail".
