New SDK Example not working with my Feed

Fri Mar 30, 2012 1:19 pm

Hello, I have a private channel that was developed with an old sdk example application and it works fine with my feed. I downloaded new sdk and it will load my categories and subcategories but will not play my videos... any ideas? Here is a sample video category.

<feed>
<resultLength>3</resultLength><endIndex>3</endIndex>

<item sdImg="http://bvmconsole.com/roku_thumbnails/12366.png" hdImg="http://bvmconsole.com/roku_thumbnails/12366.png"><title>State Policy Network Founding Principles of Freedom </title><contentId>12366</contentId><contentType>episode</contentType><contentQuality>SD</contentQuality><media><streamFormat>hls</streamFormat><streamQuality>SD</streamQuality><streamBitrate>800</streamBitrate><streamUrl>http://wfs.mp.advection.net/vod/mp/bigvoicesmedia/BVMedia101/_dld/We-the-People_-Founding-Principles-of-Freedom_0800.mp4/playlist.m3u8</streamUrl></media><synopsis>We the People: Founding Principles of Freedom </synopsis><genres/><runtime>12000</runtime></item>

Could be the start <> like there is no <genres> but you have <genres/> only, plus a few others without opening brackets. Tried VLC and I could not play either.

<genres /> is perfectly valid XML, and is parsed properly by the Roku XML parser, so I doubt that's the issue.

I think the problem may be that your <streamFormat> element is subordinate to your <media> element. If you look at showFeed.brs, the paring logic expects the streamFormat element to be subordinate to the <item> element.

XML is easier to read if you format it like this

<feed>
   <resultLength>3</resultLength>
   <endIndex>3</endIndex>
   
   <item sdImg="http://bvmconsole.com/roku_thumbnails/12366.png" hdImg="http://bvmconsole.com/roku_thumbnails/12366.png">
      <title>State Policy Network Founding Principles of Freedom </title>
      <contentId>12366</contentId>
      <contentType>episode</contentType>
      <contentQuality>SD</contentQuality>
      <media>
         <streamFormat>hls</streamFormat>
         <streamQuality>SD</streamQuality>

That being said, I don't see any problems with your xml - like you said it is parsing and displaying your feed just fine, but it won't play the videos, so I'd guess it could be something different elsewhere. Or what RokuChris said, lol... :)
