Working HLS stream gives error in Direct Publisher

Wed Oct 12, 2016 5:16 pm

Trying to create a Direct Publisher channel with just a single live HLS stream. Said HLS stream works on all other devices/platforms tested (even my native Roku test app), but Direct Publisher returns the following error:

The feed URL(s) could not be validated.
[*] The server returned a non-200 status code - (302).

The feed is coming from DFP stitch, with a URL like this (NOT the valid URL, so this won't work...Roku admin feel free to PM me if you'd like actual URL to test)

Any help greatly appreciated...would LOVE to use Direct Publisher. Thanks!

Oops, my fault - I was putting the URL directly into feed URL box instead of into a custom feed. Works now.

Would you be able to provide an example of your "Feed URL"? I am trying to get a live HLS feed working.

What he meant was where Roku Direct Publisher was looking for the channel's content feed file he was entering the URL of the HLS manifest itself.
The files inside the content feed can be redirected (302) and still work, but the feed file won't be validated by Direct Publisher if it's not returning a 200 OK response code.
