Using Roku billing for donations?

I'm wondering if I can incorporate donations into an app using the Roku billing platform. It seems I should be able to define specific products like "$5 donation", "$10 donation", "$25 donation", etc, and then allow the user to purchase a donation product. Any reason th...

API for creating digital products?

If I understand correctly (after reading this http://blog.roku.com/developer/2013/06/06/supporting-in-app-purchases-in-your-roku-brightscript-channels/ ), then and in-app purchases must be created on the Roku CMS. We drive the metadata (categories, video titles, descriptions, etc) for all our videos...

Add channel to other countries

After a channel has been published, is there a way to add it to additional channel stores (outside of USA) without having to resubmit a new version of the channel? It seems I have to resubmit a new version each time which is silly since nothing about the channel has changed.

Italian Channel

Are there any restrictions on channels that are in complete Italian? I noticed I don't have that as a selection when choosing a language when adding a channel. The channel name, description, and audio for the video will all be in Italian.

Re: Preventing canvas flicker?

Thanks for the feedback. I'm not really doing anything at all complicated. There's only two layers - the base layer which is either all black or somewhat transparent black, and a layer on top of it that displays text. One thing I could try is changing the text layer to not be 100% of the screen (it'...

Preventing canvas flicker?

I'm working on a simple custom video player for live video. All it will do is present a buffering screen with a semi-transparent black screen with white text, and otherwise just show the video. I used much of the sample code from the SDK. Here's some of what I have: Function ShowPlayer(video) port =...

Re: Long delay before package install when running make inst

The difference between the cURL calls in the make file provided by Roku and the script by EnTerr is that EnTerr's is using --anyauth instead of --digest. If I make that change on the make file, the install never hangs.

Re: Long delay before package install when running make inst

That the two scripts aren't the same, but I see now you said "only real difference" when I thought that read "only difference". I'll see if I can try and figure out what exactly is causing the hangup with the existing makefile code, but being on the homescreen of the Roku makes n...

Re: Long delay before package install when running make inst

? The standard make file from the SDK download is this: APPNAME = customvideoplayer VERSION = 1.0 include ../app.mk And in the app.mk file, here's the relevant bit for the install action: pkg: install @echo "*** Creating Package ***" @echo " >> creating destination directory $(PKGREL)...

Does roVideoPlayer fire isScreenClosed()?

The event isScreenClosed() is useful for roVideoScreen, but I can't seem to get it to fire for roVideoPlayer, which makes sense. Instead I need to watch for isScreenClosed() on the canvas object. I just want to confirm that there isn't some other circumstance in which that event would fire when I'm ...

Are you loading the code with the roku at the home screen? Some running channel screen types significantly impact the reinstall process.


Doesn't matter, home screen has the same behavior.


I was able to use EnTerr's script and it sends the package within a second every time. Thank you!

Long delay before package install when running make install

Ever since the upgrade to 5.0 which required the new makefile to side load dev channels, something like 80% of the time or so the channel takes around 20 seconds to load. It hangs right after I enter the 4-character password that I had to set. The other 20% of the time it packages and installs immed...

isStreamSegmentInfo(), the StreamBandwidth reported is 0

In my testing with a 2.25mbps HLS stream, the GetInfo() property of the isStreamSegmentInfo() event contains an associative array. One the keys of the array is StreamBandwidth, which according to the docs is "Bandwidth of the stream being played in kbps". This value is always 0 for me. So ...
