I'm trying to do a seamless loop playing video, but I have some real problems to archive that.
The 'native' way (loop="true") and the non native way (when video finishes, start again) causes the buffer shows up.
If I try to 'prebuffer' a second video node, when the first video is about to end, it throws a error:
[Video2] ERROR invalid - failed to create media player
So, it's really frustrating this situation, I had to do the same job with an app for Appel TV and I did it in 2 days, I have been working on roku for a month now, and I didn't had any results. If a solution is available to fix the buffer on loop, no matter how complex it is, I will be glad to implement it. Thanks.
But I'm wondering if there is something more native, without changing anything on the server (actually, I don't have access to the media server).
I know that the Roku device can do what i'm trying to do without a server dependence, actually, if I reboot my device, I can see a 3D bouncing ROKU logo, and i'm pretty sure that is not a rendered animation (it will be a waste). If anybody knows how the start/reboot animation is done, it will be awesome!
I know it is a little late but many times when I have used a background video loop I either convert/save it with quicktime which has a native loop feature and/or post the video to youtube which also has a loop video feature. Both work well and it saves server side resources.
Thats assuming you are only talking about a few videos and not 1000's
