Grid with HLS?

Trying to add hls to a grid row. When I click play my popup says "could not connect to server". The url works...what do I have incorrect in the following code or what have I left out?

<row title="test">
<item type="video"    title= "test" sdposterurl="http://xxxxx140x94.jpg" hdposterurl="http://xxxxx210x158.jpg"     length="" 
url="http://xxxxx/playlist.m3u8" contentid="test" 
streamFormat="hls" streamquality="SD" streambitrate="">     <!--  -->
                  <description>test              </description>
 
     </item> </row>

Re: Grid with HLS?

Fixed it by making streamFormat to streamformat. 

It played one of my channel streams  but when I tested with one of my own channel links for a channel I have (a ustream channel) it didn't play. Not sure how to get it to work for that link..ugh

Wait... are you saying that ro-graphy is case-sensitive (regarding XML element and attribute names)?
WAT?!

That's not SceneGraph.  It looks like it's probably a modified version of the videoplayer example.  That aside, XML is case-sensitive, so yes, SceneGraph XML is also case-sensitive, at least with respect to the element names.. I don't think attributes are case-sensitive, though.

Re: Grid with HLS?

I just know I tried the link and it wouldn't play then I noticed I had streamFormat and once I made the change to streamformat the link played perfectly.

But, I can't get my ustream link to play. Am I missing some parameter or have pieces of the code in the wrong place? 

Can someone help me with this?

Hmmm. XML being case-preserving does not create semantical "mandate" for roSG that uses it to be case-sensitive. Two illustrations: 
    (a) roXmlElement is not case-sensitive (unless you want it to)
    (b) your observation that roSG currently is case-sensitive for elements but case-insensitive for attributes shows it can do whatever the heck it wants (XML is innocent)
So seems it's been the road of least resistance for roSG on this so far, not a matter of principle.

This diversion aside, whoever knows something on OP's question, should answer.
