I have 46 video url in my feed. Today 4 of them unbelievably are "Unreachable"!

I've seen the same Feed Status page errors as well, several different channels. All of the URLs with errors are Vimeo file URLs. Sometimes the videos with the error messages still display on-screen, sometimes they do not.

Same here, 250 videos on channel last night, after updating today showing 390 "Required video url is unreachable" error. Same videos being listed several times. Others are showing up just fine.

I tested urls with Roku Stream Tester and they works fine.

Updated stream again at 12:57 (Ten Minutes Ago) with no changes made. Now, even more are showing unreachable. What gives? Anyone know what is going on?

Same here. Everything worked fine up until about 2:00 PM yesterday. Since then, all of my feeds report they are unable to reach the video URLs.

Are all of the URLs that everyone is reporting here from Vimeo?

I stream videos from several different sources, but so far only the Vimeo URLs are generating errors.

Just for the record.
My problem has been solved (after 12 hours).
I think on 12am and 12pm (PST), urls are evaluating and broken ones cause the problem.

Make sure you use the static links provided by Vimeo (Pro Only), otherwise your video links might change. In the video go to Settings/Video File/Access Your Video Files. Using the HLS link requires changing the videoType value to "HLS" and removing the bitrate.
