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 creating BIF (Trick Play), Direct Publisher (MRSS, JSON), and FireTV feeds @ GitHub/rrirower. No programming knowledge required.

"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?
