Greetings from Joshua Tree,
I'm a newbie, and thought Vimeo Pro would be a good hosting platform for a public Direct Publisher channel for our travel series. But after weeks of going back and forth with both Vimeo and Roku tech support, my problems are still unresolved, so here I am.....
We have a regional travel show produced for PBS here in southern California. We've produced two seasons of episodes, extras (music performances, full interviews, features), and are preparing for our third season. I need to organize our content on our Direct Publisher channel so that there can be categories like Season 1, Season 2, Season 3, Extras, etc. But it doesn't appear to be possible using Vimeo Pro, according to tech support.
We're using a Vimeo showcase for our content for our Direct Publisher channel. We are required to choose a genre for the showcase before we can create the URL feed for the Roku channel. But then, videos upload fine, but the only category choices there are on Roku are the Vimeo genres, and they apply to all videos in the showcase, which means there's no organization of videos and they show up in every category we create.
Is that right? Is it really impossible to organize content into Roku channel categories with Vimeo Pro? Any suggestions will be welcome. Thank you!
