Any idea why this is still necessary? As much trouble as it has caused over the years, you'd think it'd have been addressed on the firmware side already. I can't recall working with any other programming language/platform that requires you to explicitly set the certificates file. It seems like it'd be trivial to have ifHttpAgent and ifUrlTransfer default to using the common certs if the protocol is https. Doing that would probably also fix a few bugs that are currently present in the built-in components (e.g., the fact that roGridScreen doesn't support posters that use https).

Well, some channels use a custom certificates file. But I agree that for the majority of developers who use the standard file, it would be simpler to not require an explicit call. I've entered an enhancement request for this.

Re: Moving Videos to Cloud with connection problems?

I have everything linked now, finally and thanks all for the
help.
I used Handbrake to put these videos into a mp4 format
and had the bit rate set at 2048 for the majority of my 30
videos.
The Videos shot in High Def seem to be working great
like below,

The videos shot in Standard Definition are taking forever to load,
I am guessing I made a mistake with the bitrate for the SD videos?
Would you think the is the cause for the slow load?
What would be a good bitrate for a SD 1200?
I used the same template in Handbrake for both SD and HD video conversion.
I have the latest version of Final Cut Pro but found no
resources for Final Cut X and Roku videos.
