So, I have finally tackled the Json file challenge. My file didn't work though for the first week of my experience. It had a couple of items in the top of the code that threw it off. After comparing and contrasting it with a file that worked I saw the error of my ways. So, I think Baradanikto software for generating Json files is the ticket. He also includes closed caption which I want to add but will have to learn how or purchase his product. I tried the WP Smart Tv program but could not get it to perform. Also, there needs to be some instruction on how to host a Json file and thumbnails. After much work I was able to do it using Amazon S3 with Cloudfront. So, no need for any other hosting company but Amazon... I think. On another note, I believe Youtubers will be coming over to Roku and other OTT's in droves. Whoever makes the pathway easy and accessible will win the prize. Now that I see the Roku path, I am looking for Apply TV. I tried JW Player but they are skinny on documentation. Three days of getting no where. Anyway, just some thoughts. So grateful for all the good input on this forum.
