Re: Video is fast on Web, slow on Roku? Url metadata below

I posted the code above the original in the appMain.brs.

When I open the channel the Splash screen opens for a few seconds a screen with a big empty box
or container where a video should be appears, pressing OK does nothing.
Press OK to start movie, Back to Exit. TimeTo Load: 0 seconds
Video Player is stopped.

So I don't see the overhang or all the icons I created
for the videos anymore, all that appears is the channel icon
which when pressed leads to the full screen Splash
which automatically after a few seconds goes to the screen
mentioned above?
Did I miss something here? I saw you had some code about initializing
which I did not include.
Thanks For Your Help,
Kevin

Re: Video is fast on Web, slow on Roku? Url metadata below

Probably the best thing to do is to create another project in eclipse. Create a brs source file in the source directory and copy my code into it an export it. Close your project before running the new one. You would not see anything else because the main function or sub is the entry point into the application. As far as the box is concerned my main is all there is. When you press the back button does it exit, if so then you better wait for the loading to start, takes awhile. My guess is that the performance will be no different than what you have already. The time to load and messages on the bottom just display what is coming in on the message queue and a timer. So if nothing is coming in, or it is waiting then you will have to wait until something does. I just copied it from the post into my own main file and it works as indicated

Re: Video is fast on Web, slow on Roku? Url metadata below

Try this version, its a hack but it presents a better timer indicating that something is happening

Sub Main() 

hideL = -1
backL = 0
helloL = 1
videoL = 2
promptL = 3
messageL = 4

playerRect = { x: 50, y: 120, w: 630, h:452 }
punchRect = playerRect

back = { Color:"#FFFFFFFF", CompositionMode:"Source"}

hello ={
Text:"Press Ok To Start Movie, Back To Exit"
TextAttrs:{Color:"#FFCCCCCC", Font:"Medium",
HAlign:"HCenter", VAlign:"VCenter",
Direction:"LeftToRight"}
TargetRect:{x:100 + 630 + 10,y: 120 + 30,w:500,h:60}
}

prompt ={
Text: "TIME TO LOAD: " + " 0 " + "SECONDS "
TextAttrs:{Color:"#FFCCCCCC", Font:"Medium",
HAlign:"HCenter", VAlign:"VCenter",
Direction:"LeftToRight"}
TargetRect:{x:100 + 630 + 10,y: 120 + 30 + 60,w:500,h:60}
}

message ={
