Video component's Rating field

Does the "rating" feature work automatically for the Video component?  I thought it's supposed to take the text-written rating and show to associated MPAA logo when the video is played?  Does the "channel is rated" feature have to be set when publishing the channel?  How does Roku overlay the logo or does it?

Re: Video component's Rating field

A screen (for example, a Details screen) should be able to display the rating if you include the rating field in its content node.  I don't think the Video node consumes the rating field of a content node.

Re: Video component's Rating field

The docs say that the text definition for the rating will be converted to the associated graphic, I think automatically.  What you're saying is that ".rating" is basically just a string field for convenience and that we have to store all the MPAA logos in our channel and do the conversion ourselves?

Nope...I'm saying you can use it in your UI...not the video player.
