410 items have error: Required movie content is missing.

Hello, I have a json feed into my roku direct publisher channel, but when I checked the feed status it says "410 items have error: Required movie content is missing."

 

I tried every field the documentation offered, it didn't cause it to error more, but didn't help the problem, so  I don't know what to do.

Please help me figure out what it is asking for.

thanks

Re: 410 items have error: Required movie content is missing.

The problem is, the feed specifications page does not have a duration for movie content type: https://developer.roku.com/docs/specs/direct-publisher-feed-specs/json-dp-spec.md#movie

Re: 410 items have error: Required movie content is missing.

is the duration in seconds or minutes. Will it matter if I just put the video duration longer than the video? What will happen?

You've got several syntactical errors in your feed file:

In particular, you've defined the Content object as an array rather than an object.

Re: 410 items have error: Required movie content is missing.

The 'duration' field is a value in the Content object and is the total number of runtime seconds for the video.

I have taken off all but one video and added the duration, but it still returns the same error.
