Re: update the toke to roku

Set the expiration longer in the future. Also, generate the URL and token at the moment the user clicks Play, make sure it doesn't expire during the length of the video playback, with some room to spare for taking breaks from watching.

Re: update the toke to roku


I would like to develop an RESTFUL API that returns the url with token on play. I cannot find any information in the documentation about a link with the play button and an external service.
PLease could you help me about it...

DO I need to write an app?
