RAFtester app is crashing and not able test m8u8

I want to test my m3u8 stream. For this i'm using Roku Stream Tester App and pushing stream to Roku Device which is connected to my windows laptop. 

 

Player is launching in Roku device and playing for 3-5sec and then app getting crashed suddenly. This behavior i have not seen yesterday. This is blocking me.. can you anyone help in fixing this issue?

I'm also seeing this happening with HLS/Dash manifest attempts as well. 

Was working perfectly last night 6P Central.

I use the stream tester app as well to cast to my tv and as of this afternoon, am not able to cast but for a few seconds. Is this something that Roku will usually fix? Have never had this problem before and was wondering what we are up against?

Same issue. Stream starts for about 5 seconds then just punts back to the main menu.

Any workarounds or fixes?

I use the circulate tester app as properly to solid to my television and as of this afternoon, am not capable of cast but for some seconds. Is this something that Roku will usually repair? Have by no means had this trouble to play with pokemon go  earlier than and was thinking what we are up against?
