The JSON feed Manager software does read and manage an existing feed file. You can create a new one, or, manage an existing one. The demo will read a JSON feed file, but, cannot save it.

ERROR: cannot deserialize the current JSON object (e.g.{"name":"value"{) into type "RokuJsonFeedManager.TrickPlayFilesObject[] because the type requires a JSON array.

Let me know if we should take this to a different thread or forum.

Thanks!

Can you explain what you were trying to do? The demo is not fully functional and does not have the same maintenance fixes as the paid version. I should probably re-do the demo.

I'm trying to import a previously generated JSON file to make changes to it. It's the one I'm currently using for my DP Roku channel, and it's passed the feed status verification.

If you can, please send me that feed file to info@rokurowingchannel.com. I'll run it through the live version and get back to you.

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.

Just curious, why did you not open a support ticket?   I'm always available to help figure out what isn't working.   We're powering about 80 sites now, so any thing I can do to help, please let me know.

Downloaded the demo, and I see the fields for BIF and CC.  Impressive!  And yes, an import function would be phenomenal (perhaps reading an existing JSON feed).

or the old xml files and convert to current json files..

Personally I think trying to stuff all the content (2500+ videos) into one xml or json file is possible not it just seems so clunky.. I wish I knew brightscript well enough to write my own player that could read directly from sql or access..

You are right, I didn't reach out and should have. I guess I was just a little hasty. You concept is really awesome. I will revisit it now that I know a little more about the process. Thanks for your product and for reaching out. Tom
