JSON file length maximum

Tue May 21, 2019 3:37 pm

Does anyone know if there's a max limit to the size of our JSON file or the number of videos a channel can have?

My channel currently has 315 videos, ~8000 lines of code, a little less than 250kb in size. 

I get a little nervous having come from the old Roku SDK where all the categories were conveniently separated into their own, short xml files.

I seem to remember the following limitations for DP. 25 rows of 40 "items". Where, an "item" is not necessarily one video. It can be a series of videos. There's no limit on the physical size of the feed file. The Roku partner site details these limitations.
Windows desktop software for creating and managing MRSS, JSON, and FireTV feeds @ https://rrirower.wixsite.com/software. No Programming, JSON or MRSS knowledge required.

If you use .json file to set the playlist, there is no 40 item limitation.

I don't know of any limitations with JSON files. As an FYI, one of my DP channels's JSON file has over 20,000+ lines with 842 videos and is 678kb.

The limitations were posted by RokuTomC, but they might have changed since it was posted here -
