Building a Custom Video Player / playlist

Hello All,

I see there is a cool example of how to build a custom video player which plays a list of videos from a JSON file at the Roku Developer Blog here: http://blog.roku.com/developer/2012/10/15/building-a-custom-video-player/

My problem is that I want to have this JSON file on a remote server so it can be updated frequently not in the code like the example. I know that this can be done using roUrlTransfer, like in this other blog example: http://blog.roku.com/developer/2012/08/17/communicating-with-web-services-from-brightscript/

However, quite frankly my attempts to combine the two code examples properly have been fruitless and seems to be well beyond my skills at this point. I know what I want to accomplish, but just can't get there!! I'm sure this is quite a simple task for an experienced programmer. If anyone can help I would appreciate it. I would even be up to paying a bit if it's reasonable (I'm just small, little one-man company!)

Thanks,
Jon C. Moon
