Re: Feed Issue, no videos showing up (Newbie)

Bigmike333 and all others with this problem...

For my unpublished (test) channel, I do, in fact, rename my feed file each time I make a change because I want my changes reflected immediately.  I use Amazon's CloudFront caching and if I don't rename the file (ie. I use the same name), the changes are not reflected until the cache has been refreshed.

There must be some other condition, as I stated earlier in this thread, that is contributing to the "bug".  How else would I be able to continue to update my channel?  Is it possible that there's a problem in the actual feed file?  For example, a stray BOM in the file.  I know early on when I first started creating my Json feed file, I had problems with the file and the use of a BOM in the file.  That's one of the reasons I decided to write my own software to create and manage Json feeds.

I downloaded your trial version of the software. Is there a comprehensive set of instructions for it that explain what each element of the program does, formats, changes, etc? It is well laid out, but I have no idea how it puts out a json file to upload. Even if it did, it would crash on Roku. The json file I have been using worked in the past. All I changed was the url for the live stream, which plays fine in VLC, and plays fine after I go ahead and publish the channel. The only way to preview it though, is to actually publish the channel. This is not a good plan. My channel worked, but how many will not?

Big mike333...

I'm not sure what you mean by a "comprehensive list of instructions".  The software does come with a Help file that explains how to use it.  If you've got specific questions, please PM me, or, contact me through the website in my signature.

Hi Guys,

UPDATE:
As of  June 24th, 2019... the issue seems to have been "FIXED" already... I was able to create unpublished channels, delete, add new, and all working fine now!!!

Hopefully it stays fixed :)

Thank you all who contributed to this thread :)
