Re: Problems with video player example

If you remove the main category line then it can't parse the child catagories. You'll want to modify the parsing routine in the script if you want to remove that.
As far as the video player xml goes - the genre is actually the "actors", and the ContentType holds the invalid value of "Talk". It could use an update, perhaps in the next SDK release they'll fix a few things.
