DeepLinking - After playback behaviour

Hello,

What should happen in Channel when playback ends for a video opened through Deep Linking? Is it alright to display Channel's main screen?

Thanks!

Deep linking calls your main funtion and it's your program's responsible to play the video. So you have full control.

Re: DeepLinking - After playback behaviour

My question is regarding "after playback" behavior. Roku documentation https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/Deep+Linking explains what should be handled various deep linking calls, but I couldn't find any info about what should happen after a video is played through deep linking feature.

I would think the same thing should happen after playback whether the video was chosen by deep-linking or chosen via the UI.

Yes, there's no need to exit after a deep linked video is played, your app can go to its main screen or another landing screen, such as suggestions for other videos.
