So I'm a Noob here, but not totaly clueless with programming..
I am modifying my videoplayer example as a proof of concept piece, and have hit a wall.... under the categories, I have changed one to point to webcams around my neighborhood. We are using axis cameras, that have a direct path to return a jpg image. We have the image path loading up in the XML file, and shows up perfectly when the channel is loaded into the roku.
the problem I have is that I can't figgure out how to make the image refresh, or reload, every few seconds for example. It still shows the original pictures of night time when I loaded up the channel last night.
Any thoughts or tips would be greatly appreciated.
Most screens on the Roku use a simple while loop. If you are not processing screen messages (like remote buttons, except Home which will kill the app), a simple sleep will work. If you are, you can replace it with some counter or a wait function (eg. msg = wait(120000, screen.GetMessagePort()))
I just learned the debugger about 10 mins ago... and so far it's making life a little better. I still can't see where the images get loaded from the lower array (childleaf). I see where everything else comes in. I tried using the getunixtime(), and it posted a bunch of errors, so I swapped it out with a rnd(4500) to pull a random number.
Now I just need to get my Wowza live stream and I'm in business... All I need is a proof of concept to get things going, then we will probably have a seasoned developer put everything together!
