Hello, I've been able to use videos uploaded to my personal website AND IT WORKED! but how can I use YouTube videos on my roku channnel? Also how do I use live Youtube videos as well? For Example I want to use this video URL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0DPdy98e4c how could I do that in my Roku Channel?
Here is some of my code WHICH HAS WORKED for mp4 videos uploaded to my personal website.
<item sdImg="I put my image sd url here -- no problem" hdImg="I put my hd mage url here -- no problem"> <title>My Title </title> <contentId>10001</contentId> <contentType>Talk</contentType> <contentQuality>HD</contentQuality> <streamFormat> have tried "mp4" "hls" "mkv" "ism" etc...</streamFormat> <media> <streamQuality>HD</streamQuality> <streamBitrate>1500</streamBitrate> <streamUrl> tried to use a youtube url here and video doesnt play once app is developed</streamUrl> </media> <synopsis>Some random synopsis to put here</synopsis> <genres>Technology</genres> <runtime>10</runtime> </item>
There is a youtube app you can load onto your Roku. I believe other than that, Youtube's policies do not allow you to serve youtube video via a Roku channel and Youtube has technology in place to prevent you from doing it. Although I may be mistaken about this, maybe someone else can confirm or deny.
