No more XML - need a package now to play videos?

Before I used to be able to upload an xml file to my roku to play simple files.  Now it seems like it needs a package.  Sample xml file.

Are you using Direct Publisher or the Roku SDK?

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