Do I have to add a contentNode to disable CC

Hello, in my Roku SG channel, the Closed Captions are wrong and I have no idea where they are coming from and are the same for every channel. Do i have to add a contentNode for CC to disable them? Channel is here - https://github.com/rokudev/videoplayer-channel

Re: Do I have to add a contentNode to disable CC

Glancing at the source on github, I'm guessing they're coming from CragVenter.srt in the source directory. Remove that file and they'll be gone. That's not really the right way to do it (remove/replace the reference in the code), but it will get the job done.

Thank you, that is it but that means I need to re-publish the channel again Smiley Sad but thank you for finding that.

Do I need that main.brs file too? none of the files in the components folder has reference to CragVenter.srt so I guess I'll just delete the file

Yes, you need main.brs (it has the Main function). CraigVenter.srt is referenced in SpringBoard.brs in the components directory.

Thanks, the first time I searched it, it didn't come up for me, probably spelt it wrong Smiley Sad

Anyway, there is a warning at the bottom of that coders channel page;

Warning
This sample does not utilize deep-linking and warning dialog messages but has them in the code if a developer desires to use them.


Since deep-linking is required for Public channel certification, can you see what is involved in enabling that option and is it a big job to configure correctly?
I assume there would be a bunch of work to do with the channel to get that working or I assume he would have enabled it in the first place?
