I can't seem to play HD videos hosted in googleusercontent.com using the Video Player components like roVideoPlayer & roVideoScreen. I'm using the sample code from simple-videoplayer-channel and the SD video plays but not the HD video! What am I doing wrong?! Any pointers will be very helpful. Thank you in advance.
simple-videoplayer-channel code is here https://github.com/rokudev/sample-channels
480 SD video in googleusercontent that plays: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/yuayWNP1vqF2W0Dxv5I0ANGm7GsObP1oM3czjKTkbaJjL8EQ8tQ75YDGGYdMUwQhpTv52K8mFFE=m18
720 HD video that doesn't play in Roku: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/yuayWNP1vqF2W0Dxv5I0ANGm7GsObP1oM3czjKTkbaJjL8EQ8tQ75YDGGYdMUwQhpTv52K8mFFE=m22
1080 HD video that doesn't play either: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/yuayWNP1vqF2W0Dxv5I0ANGm7GsObP1oM3czjKTkbaJjL8EQ8tQ75YDGGYdMUwQhpTv52K8mFFE=m37
All of the above videos play in a web browser. I'm wondering how the Roku video player component is able to handle the redirect in the SD video but not in the HD video!
Here's the modified sample code in SimpleVideoScene.brs:
Code: Select all
ContentNode = CreateObject("roSGNode", "ContentNode")
ContentNode.streamFormat = "mp4"
'ContentNode.url = "http://video.ted.com/talks/podcast/DanGilbert_2004_480.mp4" 'Default
'ContentNode.url = "https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/yuayWNP1vqF2W0Dxv5I0ANGm7GsObP1oM3czjKTkbaJjL8EQ8tQ75YDGGYdMUwQhpTv52K8mFFE=m18" 'Plays
