Wait a minute. in an earlier message I was told to setup IIS smooth streaming, IIS smooth streaming only uses ISX files which it translates to asx files to launch players.. I just spent 3 days learning a new server and now your telling me that IIS smooth streaming is not compatible.. Is there an official document or tech support area where you can get straight forward direct correct answers? Because I'm not investing any more money and server resources to roku if not. I just wasted three 12 hour days at 150/hour labor charges.
IIS Smooth Streaming is supported, but you have to tell the player that it's a smooth stream. I'm not clear on how ISX playlists relate to Smooth Streaming, but you'll need an ISM Manifest to work with the Roku, and you'll need to set the StreamFormat to "ism". Here's a blog post with a ton of sample streams you can use to test your code, and see what format is expected: http://zoomicon.wordpress.com/2012/09/2 ... ideo-urls/
Now I'm completly lost. if it works and there is a working example I can relate to that. but I have no idea what a ism stream format is, there doesn't appear to be anything about ism format on technet.. is there a sample application? some kind of server guide or anything on here?
Basically right now all I want to do is get one file to stream to roku. then I can reverse engineer it and figure out how it all works.
I'm almost thinking the problem is my roku player.. I tried this.. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?> <feed> <!-- resultLength indicates the total number of results for this feed --> <resultLength>1</resultLength> <!-- endIndix indicates the number of results for this *paged* section of the feed --> <endIndex>61</endIndex>

the player just sits there saying retrieving, the degugger shows "button pressed"
I tried the exact same thing with a .mp4 a .m4v a .avi and a .mpg.. exact same results yet if I put the path into my browser it opens windows media player and plays the files.. the 1.wmv even plays on my android phone..
WMV is only supported on the legacy (firmware 3.x) devices. It's not supported on the current generation. AVI and MPG aren't supported on any generation. You need to stick with MP4 encoded as described in the encoding guide (http://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/Encoding+Guide).
