Categorizing a direct publisher channel using a feed from VIMEO

I want to use the categories tab to differentiate between the different shows we have?  How do I do that when I am using my feed from VIMEO?  I have checked the categories tab in the help tools, but it did not do me any good. Please advise. Is there a way i need to categorize on Vimeo to where it will load up on Roku through the tags or what do I do? TAGS is the only option its giving me since i dont have the JSON feed and I am using direct publisher

Hi @vtorres   using the Vimeo feed you cant.

you need a proper json feed  where you can define you categories based on tags.

You may also want to take a look at my latest software release, 'DPFeedMerge'.  It was written to combine two or more Json feed files into one.

This means that Vimeo showcase users can combine multiple showcases into one feed file.
