This is my first post on roku forums, and i was hoping some of you could help me with a task i have been given. I have no previous experience with roku development and/or creating channels. I did read some documentation although it did not really help me.
I need to be able to create a Channel that streams HLS format from a link that I already have. I have used InstantTV to create this channel and pkg file to upload to the roku. It is working just fine although i have this dilemma. The HLS stream is always LIVE, but sometimes it will be a meeting being streamed, and other times it will be a simple image, although this is still content. I was told we have an on premise API that allows us to determine when a meeting goes live and when it ends.
Now that I have the channel being streamed at all times, how would i be able to record a VOD and store it, so that i can show the VOD on a different channel?
Also, is there a way to notify that a stream has gone live ?
Overall, i would like to know if it is possible to interface the API with a JSON feed, from what i have been researching, to allow the notification that a meeting is going live, record that meeting, and when it ends, save the VOD, and have it be playable on another channel. I myself do not know if this is possible, i would just need some guidance.
Thanks for the answers in advance, i appreciate any input.
