If anyone is looking for a new project. The development packet is not in my language. lol. I'm clueless as to building a channel.

Re: new channnel idea....if you need a new project

As I understand it the folks that run the site are OK with it happening. Currently none of them are roku users. If a developer here needs a subscription to build a channel. Well I could possibly help with that. Or ask the site owners to give you a free sub to build the channel. I'm pretty sure they would be supportive. If your interested feel free to respond, or PM me I'll help however I can........

I would love for this to become a channel on Roku, but I don't think the stream format is supported. Microsoft Silverlight / Windows Media???

It looks like they support iPhone streams.... This usually implies HLS which is compatible with the Roku.

I think you're overgeneralizing. PlayOn outputs iPhone compatible HLS streams, but they won't play on the Roku.

While not technically "public" both TVersity's and PlayOn's HLS streams play on the iPhone, but not on the Roku. As far as I can tell from my limited snooping, it's down to the specific requirements described by RokuMarkn here: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=31056&p=190110&hilit=HLS#p190110

Yes, the audio must be AAC, not MP3. It must also be LC profile, not Main, and the ADTS headers must correctly indicate LC profile.

Re: new channnel idea....if you need a new project

I don't have a server where I can host them, but if you're interested I could probably package the .ts files I created with PlayOn and upload them somewhere. However, like TheEndless said the first problem is that the audio is mp3. The second problem is that the video barely plays at all, it's more like a new frame is produced every 10 or 20 seconds.

Quite possibly the video problem is related to the incompatible audio. The A/V sync logic may be doing something weird as it tries to sync video to the non-playable audio.

Re: new channnel idea....if you need a new project

here try this stream mark

it works just fine on my iPhone

http://77.67.108.148/213.254.245.221/4c3437f87a999/514/stream.m3u8

seems it using .mp3 audio is there any reason that Roku doesnt support mp3 audio in HLS but it supports mp3's in audio files
