2. Is deep linking required for certification?

Thank you for the reply. I was hoping it wasn't needed because I have not figured out how to add that. I have a segment of that code but not sure where to add it to make it work. Back to the learning curve...I was thinking since it's not possible to search and find a video based on search being a live stream that it wouldn't be required, That was my wish anyway lol

If it opens and plays the stream without any intermediate screens, I don't see how deep linking could apply. There would be no difference in behavior if a "deep link" was supplied or wasn't supplied. I'd just submit it and see what Roku has to say.
