I am able to pass URL as a parameter to roVideoScreen following this blog post:https://blog.roku.com/developer/2011/10/06/using-launch-parameters
Unfortunately roVideoScreen is deprecated and my channel will be rejected during certification if I use it.
Now I am trying to pass URL as a parameter to Video node using this example:https://github.com/rokudev/samples/tree/master/media/VideoExample
I tried to use m.global to access Video node from Main function but it was unsuccessful.Any help how to achieve this will be highly appreciated.
You want to access the video node through the scene variable. Following that example, it would be something like this:
screen = CreateObject("roSGScreen")
m.port = CreateObject("roMessagePort")
scene = screen.CreateScene("VideoExample")
video_node = scene.FindNode("exampleVideo")
videocontent = createObject("RoSGNode", "ContentNode")
videocontent.title = "Example Video"
videocontent.streamformat = "mp4"
videocontent.url = "https://roku-webdev-opus.s3.amazonaws.com/public-videos/big+stream+trimmed.mp4"
video_node.content = videocontent
video_node.control = "play"
It works! Thank you very much!
