JSON Loop A Video/Movie


I was wondering if there was a function within JSON to loop videos and or movies? (Video restarts after ending).

I am currently using a simple JSON code file with a category and a few videos under it.

Thank you in advanced.

Re: JSON Loop A Video/Movie

What is the context of your question?  Are you building a channel with the SDK or Direct Publisher?  Either way, JSON is a data exchange format.  It does not provide executable code.

FREE Windows desktop software for converting Direct Publisher channels to SceneGraph (SDK), for creating BIF (Trick Play) files, Roku (MRSS, JSON) feed files, and FireTV feed files @ GitHub/rrirower.

"Either way, JSON is a data exchange format.  It does not provide executable code."

Thanks, that's pretty much what I was looking for.

I'm using a Direct Publisher using JSON. I remember I used an alternative format from a website called instanttvchannel for Roku a while back. I was able to get videos and or movies to loop using that. I would assume this type used SDK and SDK allows functions like Looping videos?
