RAF.setAdUrl with package file

Hi,

Trying to set RAF.setAdUrl() with a local file (VMAP) but it's crashing inside RAF.
i.e.
#5  Function roku_ads_parser_parse(xmldata_ As String, adserver_ As String) As Object
   file/line: roku_ads_lib:/Roku_Ads_VAST_Parser.brs(190)


This is what I'm doing:
Note that the test of ReadAsciiFile() succeeds and outputs the file correctly.
file = "pkg:/config/ads.xml"

' test: succeeds
adXML = ReadAsciiFile(file)
? adXML

' crashes RAF
adInterface.setAdUrl(file)


The captured VMAP had been read processed by RAF previously, when retrieved via HTTP.
Any ideas?

Re: RAF.setAdUrl with package file

Tell me the firmware version, model #, RAF version.
Also give me a detailed error message, including the full stack (not only #5) and the exact error message (in other words copy&paste more context from the console). Showing the VMAP file may help too.

Re: RAF.setAdUrl with package file

Sorry, this issue was "user error" on my part. The VMAP xml I used didn't parse.

However as a possible improvement the error-handling in the RAF VMAP parser could be improved to not crash 🙂

These are the logs:
Roku_Ads Framework version 2.0108
