External Control App id help

Could someone please tell me the external control app id's for Hulu Plus and HBO GO? I don't see them listed in the SDK.


Thanks

They're available on your box: http://yourRokuAddress:8060/query/apps
I don't currently have Hulu Plus installed, and I'm not near a Roku at the moment to install, but HBO Go's id is 8378

Re: External Control App id help

Al I get is a list of the apps I have with no ID. Any idea how to get the number?

Re: External Control App id help

How are you querying the app list ?

result should look like this:

version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<apps>
<app id="31012" type="menu" version="2.0.53">Vudu Movie &amp; TV Store</app>
<app id="2213" type="appl" version="5.5.13">Roku Media Player</app>
<app id="12" type="appl" version="5.0.98079430">Netflix</app>
<app id="13" type="appl" version="12.3.2021122417">Prime Video</app>
<app id="837" type="appl" version="2.22.105005058">YouTube</app>
<app id="69091" type="appl" version="3.4.2">4K Spotlight</app>
<app id="151908" type="appl" version="6.0.15">The Roku Channel</app>
<app id="28" type="appl"
