My Vimeo Showcase feed was working then it suddenly stopped and giving me errors.

My Vimeo generated feed was ingesting my videos with no problems then it suddenly stops and giving me a bunch of errors in the feed status saying: 'unable to download from feedURL.:Exception Response code other than 200 from. it also showing me some old date of 12/31/1969. i also tried it in MyJson and it gave me errors saying: 'video url cannot be found'. (see pictures below) (here is my feed below): https://vimeo.com/showcase/6829595/feed/roku/6ac86c7513

https://vimeo.com/showcase/6829595/feed/roku/6ac86c7513https://vimeo.com/showcase/6829595/feed/roku/6ac86c751https://vimeo.com/showcase/6829595/feed/roku/6ac86c7513

I am stuck and honestly doesn't have a clue what to do. Anyone can help me through this, i will call you a savior.

 

Thank You

The same exact thing is happening to me and I'm not sue how to fix it. I'm not sure if its on Roku's side or Vimeo's

I have the same issue, my feed is broken. I just contacted Vimeo support and they are looking into it and will get back to me. Smiley Sad

My Channel has the same issue.

 

I have two feeds that I can use, a Json xml and Vimeo.

When the Json feed gave me an error alert three days ago, i changed to my Vimeo feed URL but neither are working so, I imagine it is at the Roku end that things have messed up.

Maybe their support team are Self-Isolating for the time being.

actually @bugle_uk it is more at Vimeo's end , so maybe if you would contact Vimeo support they would be able to tell you why is not working properly.

Same trouble here. For those blaming Vimeo, we use the same feed for our AppleTV and FireTV apps and they are having no trouble. 

Pretty sure this is a Roku issue.

Re: My Vimeo Showcase feed was working then it suddenly stopped and giving me errors.

There are a number of people who are getting the "url unreachable" message from Vimeo for feeds that were working and then shut down (search the blog you'll find more posts).  And not all Vimeo feeds, because my friend's Vimeo feed is working.  Send in your tickets to Vimeo and Roku so they stop ignoring us. 

Shout out to @AaronMSpelling who suggested pcloud as an alternative - be sure to upload into the Public Folder and then Share using the "Direct Link".  I had to upload everything again to pcloud but it's pretty fast,  24 hours later, the channel works, except for the one file with a vimeo link, which I left to flag when Vimeo starts to work again.
