Brightocove MRSS Feed


I am building a Roku app and would like to pull in an MRSS feed from my Brightcove account based on a specific playlist. I've been messing around with the various API calls laid out in Brightcove's support pages but none of them seem to work for me. I'm not using the simple MRSS but making an actual call "find_playlist_by_id" . The roku app displays "Retrieving" but it never retrieves anything. The feed works in any standard RSS reader (NetNewsWire or Google reader).

Any thoughts? Anyone succeed at doing this yet?

Re: Brightocove MRSS Feed

The first place to look for clues is the debug console ( ... bugConsole). If your code is crashing, it will tell you where and why.

To work with Roku, an MRSS feed needs to expose direct links to compatible content. I've seen some providers whose MRSS includes links to embedable flash players, but not direct links to the actual content. That might be something else to double check.
