BIF files and USB

Bif files appear not to function if loaded from the USB drive.
SDBifUrl: ext1:/Movie/TestBif.bif

The files work fine if from a url.
What I get is:

This is correct. It's more of an oversight than intentional. We should correct it in a future release.

Do they work if loaded from tmp:? If so, you could copy them over just before starting playback.

In the short term, you could perhaps try to integrate the main function in the web_server example in the SDK with your video playback function and see if you can trick the videoplayer into pulling the .bif from the USB drive via an http request to the roku player itself.

At a glance, it looks like it might be doable, but, of course, you never know till you attempt it!

I have had this problem for over a year, so you aren't alone. No solution when I posted the issue.

Any update on this problem ?
What about the trouble ticket for the parse() function being way too slow ?
