Help Needed to change loadconfig on Multi-Live Sample Channel

I'm looking for information on implementing the multi-live channel sample to play a list of videos that will be from my server. Which option can this be done with, perhaps all, or rather which one is the easiest to implement? And, can you lead me in the right direction for the first step to begin with? Looking over the package for the multi-live channel sample leads me to believe the "loadconfig" would be changed in the rowlistcontenttask Am I on the right track? 

a. XML file on my server that has the list of videos
b. m3u playlist on my server
c. json

Thank you.

Re: Help Needed to change loadconfig on Multi-Live Sample Channel

I was able to do a test using a playlist on my server and it played in the multi-live sample channel. 

I am only going to use one url ie: either a playlist url or a json that points to a playlist. 

In the sample, a ROKU ad plays and then the url of the playlist file. But about midway thru playing the files in the playlist, the ROKU ad plays and then it goes back the very beginning of the ifrst video in the playlist file instead of starting the playlist file where it left off after playing the ad. 

How do I implement ROKU adbreaks using the multi-live sample channel? How do I get it to go back to where it left off in the video after playing the ad in this sample?

My goal is to have it play my json with adbreaks that then refers to a playlist of videos with adbreaks that begin at set intervals and then returns to play the videos where it left off before the ads started. 

I'm having to use this multi-live sample channel because I have not yet learned how to build a live channel with RSG that open and plays a stream immediately upon opening.

Also, I discovered the multi live sample channel listed at the roku blog is suppose to show, according to the description, the option to add more than one stream and have artwork displayed
