I am not sure whether the format of the video is compatible. that will be my second step. Before that I want to make sure the simple video player in the example is working or not. In my case it is NOT working for the default URL which comes with the examples.
If you have a working copy, can you please share it with me?
The .swf extension means it's a Flash file which is not compatible with Roku.
Are you sure that the unmodified simplevideoplayer example is not working for you? The URL that is uses is an MP4 from http://video.ted.com. But the error message you quoted earlier refers to an srt file from salvationtv.in, which indicates that you modified the code before trying it. Does it work if you just run the simplevideoplayer zip file right from the SDK?
ASX files aren't supported. See the Supported Video Encodings table in the Component Reference or Encoding Guide for supported file types. And for an MPEG-4 video file, StreamFormat should be set to "mp4".

I have tried some of other favorites channels like Daystar, GOD.tv, Nanban.tv, salvatiotv.in and angeltv.org. All these streaming are in swf/asx format which is not supported by Roku. Is there any future plan to support these formats. Is there any alternative way to view these live streaming?
