Nor am I, but a number of people have asked about it and it was a new and different challenge.

I haven't seen that. I do occasionally see a video that stalls while buffering, but they never cause a crash. :? I'll keep my eyes open for this behavior.

Glad to have this channel.

A couple of thoughts/possible issues--

I wanted to let you know that when I tried to click on search, it wouldn't load, and then the Roku rebooted. When I tried it a second time, it let me search and I had no problems, so I'm not sure if it was related to the channel or not.

The other issue may be loading time for the menu-- all these categories take a bit to load; are they all necessary, or would the channel work better with fewer options or a menu more like the Justin.tv channel that doesn't show category videos unless the user clicks into those categories?

In any case, keep up the good work!

Chris, I just learned that my wife does use DailyMotion and was pretty excited.

If possible, can functionality to 'follow' certain users be added similar to how the now defunct YouTube channel worked?

This looks excellent. Also, although this might be better suited to the Dev forum, how did you do the autofill for the search?

Already there. That was the last piece I did this morning before releasing it.

Assume you mean populating the suggestion list on the search screen. That's really just intermediate search results for whatever you've typed so far.

Channel isn't working for me either. Gets stuck at "retrieving" or bounces back to play screen.

I finally saw the case where it falls back to the springboard screen. It looks like the servers are not responding the way the box is expecting. It probably can't be fixed completely, but I'm publishing an update that might improve things.

Channel seems to be working good on my end....the only improvement I would like to see is a row dedicated to the search button on top of all the other rows....not a big deal, just kind of annoying to click thru all the videos to get back to the search box
