how to add VOD content on Categories application

I have a Categories application that currently has a list of Live Streams for video, but I also have video on demand (VOD) content that some live streams have, and would like to have them be listed with the live stream in a category.

But everytime I put them on the same category application the video on demand videos do not play. How do you set it up?

Sample Categoriesapp Live Stream XML:

<categories><!-- banner_ad: optional element which displays an at the top level category screen -->
<banner_ad sd_img="http://rokudev.roku.com/rokudev/examples/videoplayer/images/missing.png" hd_img="http://rokudev.roku.com/rokudev/examples/videoplayer/images/missing.png" />

<category title="Live Broadcast" description="" sd_img="http://ortizmediagroup.com/roku/photo/hd/iPointLive.jpg" hd_img="http://ortizmediagroup.com/roku/photo/hd/iPointLive.jpg">

<categoryLeaf title="Church of All Nations Live" description="" feed="http://ortizmediagroup.com/roku/xml/bocalive.xml"></categoryLeaf>


Sample Channel Live Stream XML

<feed><resultLength>1</resultLength><endIndex>1</endIndex>

<item sdImg="http://ortizmediagroup.com/roku/photo/hd/ClarkOrtiz.png" hdImg="http://ortizmediagroup.com/roku/photo/hd/ClarkOrtiz.png">

<streamFormat>"h264"</streamFormat>
<streamBitrate>"1500"</streamBitrate>
<streamUrl>http://cdn.rbm.tv:1935/rightbrainmedia-live-51/_definst_/ClarkOrtiz/playlist.m3u8</streamUrl></media>

<synopsis></synopsis><genres>"Clip"</genres><runtime>0</runtime></item></feed>


But I would like to change the streamFormat from h264 to mp4 video on demand, but when I do that and add it to the categories with all the live streams, the videos do not work, but when I put them by themselves in their own application they work perfectly. Can someone explain this?

Also same/similar problem with Live AUDIO Streams, when i change the streamFormat to mp3 it doesn't work.
