Re: Deep Linking issue in channel behavior analysis section

Content is expected to play without user interaction when initiated by a deeplink.

Re: Deep Linking issue in channel behavior analysis section

Assuming your deep link is correctly directing to a landing page for the selected content. Add a variable that indicates the video was selected by the deep link and programmatically select the 'play' option you have set up that would usually be selected by the viewer. 

video.control="play"

Re: Deep Linking issue in channel behavior analysis section

according to your instructions in my UILogics folder has a VideoPlayerLogic.brs and I should put this line of code video.control="play" somewhere!

please peruse this VideoPlayerLogic.brs file for more understanding or may I provide you an other file to fix this error.

 

sub ShowVideoScreen(rowContent as Object, selectedItem as Integer, isSeries = false as Boolean)
    m.isSeries = isSeries
    m.videoPlayer = CreateObject("roSGNode", "Video") ' create new instance of video node for each playback
    ' we can't set index of content which should start firstly in playlist mode.
    ' for cases when user select second, third etc. item in the row we use the following workaround
    if selectedItem <> 0 ' check if user select any but first item of the row
        childrenClone = CloneChildren(rowContent, selectedItem)
        ' create new parent node for our cloned items
        rowNode = CreateObject("roSGNode", "ContentNode")
        rowNode.Update({ children: childrenClone }, true)
        m.videoPlayer.content = rowNode ' set node with children to video node content
    else
        ' if playback must start from first item we clone all row node
        m.videoPlayer.content = rowContent.Clone(true)
    end if
    m.videoPlayer.contentIsPlaylist = true ' enable video playlist (a sequence of videos to be played)
    ShowScreen(m.videoPlayer) ' show video screen
    m.videoPlayer.control = "play" ' start playback
    m.videoPlayer.ObserveField("state", "OnVideoPlayerStateChange")
    m.videoPlayer.ObserveField("visible", "OnVideoVisibleChange")
end sub

sub OnVideoPlayerStateChange() ' invoked when video state is changed
    state = m.videoPlayer.state
    ' close video screen in case of error or end of playback
    if state = "error" or state = "finished"
        CloseScreen(m.videoPlayer)
    end if
end sub

sub OnVideoVisibleChange() ' invoked when video node visibility is changed
    if m.videoPlayer.visible = false and m.top.visible = true
        ' the index of the video in the video playlist that is currently playing.
        currentIndex = m.videoPlayer.contentIndex
        m.videoPlayer.control = "stop" ' stop playback
        'clear video player content, for proper start of next video player
        m.videoPlayer.content = invalid
        screen = GetCurrentScreen()
        screen.SetFocus(true) ' return focus to details screen
'       for this line of for deep link
        if m.deepLinkDetailsScreen <> invalid
            content = m.videoPlayer.content
            if m.videoPlayer.isSeries = true
                content = content.GetChild(m.videoPlayer.lastIndex)
            end if
            if content <> invalid
                m.deepLinkDetailsScreen.content = content.clone(true)
            end if
        else
        newIndex = m.selectedIndex[1]
        if m.isSeries = true
           m.isSeries = false
        else
           newIndex += currentIndex
        end if
        ' navigate to the last played item
        screen.jumpToItem = newIndex
    end if
    end if
end sub

Re: Deep Linking issue in channel behavior analysis section

Do you have deeplinking set up and correctly working in your channel?  If channel is correctly landing on a view for the content item that is deeplinked and you know it is coming from a deep link on your landing page, start your video player for that content item, otherwise wait for user input to play. Roku expects the content to play on deeplink hence the message "While watching media player events, nothing was found. "
