RateRix Alternative

Since RateRix went down, I have been working on a Private channel. Try this https://owner.roku.com/add/VideoBuzz, no registeration or username/password needed. Feedback is welcome. This is my first stab, more to come.

Re: RateRix Alternative

Thank you very much!

Few thing that I would suggest is an ability to add and easily remove several Userid, and not just one, and have not just playlists there but also uploaded videos, favorites and such. Also, it appears the maximum number of elements in a list is 25 - both playlists and videos in the playlist. Granted, beyond that it is getting harder to organize them, but they should still be there.

A few concerns:
If you were to add a user with no playlists and then go their videos page, channel crashes. If you add a userid that has a space in it, channel not only crashes almost immediately, but also is inaccessible later on - the only fix is to remove it and add again.

And, out of curiosity, where do you pool the data for "most..." and "top..." videos? A quick search does not result in videos mentioned. Tollywood category is a bit too specific (though, the only one with more than 25 videos per category listed), and 1080p is a bit useless as there is no sorting of any kind and very very limited.

Re: RateRix Alternative

I just added Videobuzz to my Roku channel list today and am totally confused. Can someone PLEASE explain to me how this channel works??? Smiley Surprisedops: I added my YT user name in the 1st.box labeled "settings".In the 2nd.box labeled with my YT user name it shows my "playlist",but i didn't create that playlist, so how do i delete it so i can create my own playlist?? :?
In the 3rd. box labeled "Your subscriptions" it shows a thumbnail titled "Videos published by:"ConcertVideo",with 10 thumbnails of videos which i didn't subscribe to,so how do i delete it so that i can add my own subscriptions??? :?
How do i add subscriptions to my subscription list in Videobuzz that i subscribed to on the YT website???? :?
I'm going crazy trying to figure this out! Is it even possible to "add to" or "delete" ANYTHING in videobuzz??? I like the channel but would like to customize it for my own use. Any and all help will certainly be appreciated.

Hey, VideoBuzz is a readonly service, you cannot update your videos. You need to log into your computer update your playlists and subscriptions. You can find more info @ http://streamingtvguide.blogspot.com/20 ... -roku.html
