sujithdb ... did you happen to come up with a solution that included vimeo as the backbone to your operation? thanks! chris
We are migrating to Vimeo OTT and have a main channel and a kids channel.
Vimeo only supports 1 with our platform.
We would like to setup a direct publish channel for the kids but do not have the expertise to create a feed with the API.
Any chance you could explain how you did this to a "nonprogrammer"?
@Greg_ellsworth You don't need to be a programmer to create a channel with Direct Publisher. You simply create a "feed file" that describes the contents of your channel and upload it to a public webserver. You then use the Roku Developer's Portal to define your channel (images, advertising, etc.) and point the portal to the location of the feed file.
Start with the DP quick start guide.
I think the easiest and most "secure" way is Option #3:)
Step1. Upload videos to Vimeo ( Pro account of higher so you can access the direct video link ) and update the required metadata.
Step2. Build the feed or SDK using the direct video links - especially in Direct Publisher, it gives you more options like categories and so on .... you can learn to code it manually - there is a lot of documentation; as @Baradanikto indicated, you can use one of the programs or apps you can find "floating" around the forum, etc.
Step3. Host this feed file on some server - and the images you need in the feed, of course - if you are building a DP channel.
Step4. Submit the channel for approval - channel published - Details available in channel and play as usual
