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.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rss xmlns:media="" version="2.0">
    <link />
    <description>Feed on video content for testing channel applications built on the Roku developer platform</description>

          <media:content channels="2" bitrate="1328.0" type="video/mp4" width="1280" isDefault="true" url="">
            <media:thumbnail url="" />
