Unable to publish MRSS feed using <media:group>

Thu Feb 21, 2019 1:59 pm

Hello, I have the following MRSS feed:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rss version="2.0" xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom" xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/">

After uploading the feed, the system displays the following error message:

2 items have error: No valid items were found in the feed: No content found in given stream
»  261067.pending.en
»  261067.pending.en

After lots of attempts using trial and error method, I realized that the media:group element is not allowed.

The question is, how do I set several content bitrates for a single media item?

Thank you,
Rafael

Is there any reason why you don't use json to code your feed file? Json provides much more capabilities for a feed file.
Windows desktop software for creating and managing MRSS, JSON, and FireTV feeds https://github.com/rrirower. No Programming, JSON or MRSS knowledge required.

Thank you Baradanikto.
The only reason is that we have a system developed years ago that exports Roku feeds using MRSS.
I didn't know that it was not possible to use different video bitrates using MRSS.

Using JSON I would just need to add as many video qualities as needed, right?
For example:

{
 "providerName": "Roku Recommends",
 "language": "en-US",
 "lastUpdated": "2016-10-06T18:12:32.125Z",
 "shortFormVideos": [{
 "id": "decbe34b64ea4ca281dc09997d0f23fd",
 "title": "Live Gaming",
 "shortDescription": "With the Twitch channel, you can watch the most popular broadcasts of the day, browse live broadcasts by the games you love and follow your favorite Twitch broadcasters.",
 "thumbnail": "https://blog.roku.com/developer/files/2016/10/twitch-poster-artwork.png",
 "genres": ["gaming", "technology"],
 "tags": ["gaming", "broadcasts", "live", "twitch", "technology"],
 "releaseDate": "2015-06-11",
 "content": {
 "dateAdded": "2015-06-11T14:14:54.431Z",
 "captions": [],
 "duration": 53,
 "adBreaks": ["00:00:00", "00:00:53"],
 "videos": [{
 "url": "http://example.com/hd_media.mp4",
 "quality": "HD",
 "videoType": "MP4"
 }, {
 "url": "http://example.com/fhd_media.mp4",
 "quality": "FHD",
 "videoType": "MP4"
 }
 ]
 }
 }
 }

While I've never done it, I believe that's correct.
