roVideoPlayer events

Back in October, TheEndless reported that the isStreamStarted event never fires for roVideoPlayer. There was never a follow-up from anyone at Roku and it's still in the documentation and it still doesn't fire. Could this either be implemented or removed from the documentation?

In addition, there's an undocumented event that does fire - Type = 0. That would normally be the isListItemSelected event which makes sense given the SetContentList method. My question is, is it safe to use this undocumented event to get the current stream or is it possible that it could go away?

And for the record, isRequestSucceeded also fires but isn't documented under roVideoPlayer. So are undocumented events safe to use?

Re: roVideoPlayer events

renojim,

Thanks for following up with the bug report. We'll add it to our v3.0 triage meeting this week.

It is save to use isRequestSucceeded on roVideoPlayer. It is not safe to use the undocumented type=0 event.

Re: roVideoPlayer events

Thanks. I expected you to say both were safe to use. It just seemed to make sense that there would be a isListItemSelected event to go with SetContentList.

By safe they mean will not disappear later possibly causing your channel to break.
