Re: Youtube link

I'm pretty sure that goes against Google's TOS and isn't possible.  Google only want's you to use their Youtube channel/app for YT videos.

Re: Youtube link

you need direct video link , if you want to ad a video into a Roku channel. 

youtube only provides an embed page so you can't use youtube links.

Re: Youtube link

for Roku youtube will not work 

you need a video hosting that allows video streaming and gives you access to the direct video link.

i think on Amazon you can create channel out of your YouTube playlist but .... like with vimeo feeds you can't really control content / categories so on .......
