Re: Football Channel (Read Soccer Channel for some)

Aren't most flash videos just AVIs encapsulated? My (mis?)understanding was that if the encoder was h.264 you could play .flv files on the roku.

Not all of them. Like Youtube. They stream the videos in either FLV or MP4 format, and the Youtube channel that nowhereman created is actually letting you view the MP4 videos. That's how we are able to watch Youtube videos on the Roku in HD. So if you can find a site that also offers video that plays in MP4 format and the audio format meets Roku's standards, then you can possibly make a channel out of it.
If it doesn't work, keep beating it with the hammer till it does.
