Re: Linking Roku to website through soap web Service

a) Use roUrlTransfer to GET/POST to your webservice and use the BrightScript XML parsing capabilities (Brightscript Reference Section 4.5)
b) Yes, but in general the video screen and poster screens will download the images and video themselves.... You will supply links to these components.

Before developing and using web services, do we have to create a registration process first?

There is a sample called "register", would that be a good starting point.

It all depends on your web service. Registration and linking is purely optional for a developer. If your service requires authentication to return data then you may have to use some kind of linking system.
