On the archive can you include the old time radio shows?

It appears to me to be direct links to mpeg4 videos

But none of these will work because they are flash based, correct?

Just trying to get my feet on the ground here... Oh and if either of those do work then I would love for them to be added. Smiley Very Happy


those should work. i think we are going to end up with a single generic "kids channel" with a bunch of content from various different publishers.

Re: A Couple New Channels with More to Come

very cool.....I normally use Mediafly to retrieve podcasts (which is currently down lol) and was contemplating trying to do some sort of private channel of my own to aggregate all my feeds but you have done quite a nice job already.....I don't know if it's been mentioned but the NBC channel is currently very slow to react (on my system at least)....it takes 15-20 seconds for it to load and the button clicks take between 5 and 10 seconds to do anything......the other channels (CNN, PBS, NASA etc.) are infinitely faster and more responsive....also, some of the CNN content isn't dated while some is. I suppose this indicates you are in the process of modifying the individual feeds....just figured I would mention it.

thanks for all the hard work.


btw, both The Onion and their sister site, The A/V Club have a few feeds available if you ever do some sort of generic comedy channel or something along those lines....A/V club is audio only (and more entertainment based comedy) but The Onion has some funny video content at The Onion News Network http://www.theonion.com/content/onn/landing (various "news" reports)

Re: A Couple New Channels with More to Come

Since I usually watch Google Tech Talks via YouTube, I was surprised that they had their own site. The Authors series has it's own feed, too.

I'm not sure it's a format that would display easily on the Roku but thought I'd put it out there.

Re: A Couple New Channels with More to Come

Wow, thx for all these new channels. I'll have to remember to donate when I get the chance.

Also, I don't know if this is asking too much, but would you or anyone else know of how to write an app for ESPN360? Or is streaming a live feed still in alpha stages for Roku?
