Change Feed Categories from "by the feed" to "Custom"

Jump to solution

I have a 2 part question and hoping someone can help! 

1) Vimeo Showcases:

Mine is working well and showing up in Roku just fine. I'm still getting to know Vimeo and wondering about the feed rules. In Roku, can we publish more than 1 showcase feed or is only 1 feed allowed? If multiple feeds are possible how to do that?

 

2) Roku Categories:

I'm trying to figure out how to create multiple categories. I originally chose "from the feed" but should I have chosen "Custom"? If so, how do I change the feed to choose categories by custom? I'm trying to figure out how to have multiple categories on the channel without the same content showing up in every single category multiple times.

with Vimeo direct feed you can have , from what i know , 1 channel and ..... only 1 category , you cannot create more using the vimeo feed. it is the way vimeo provides the feed.

@AaronMSpelling If that's the case regarding Vimeo Showcases, do you know how to set up the categories where the same content doesn't show in different categories at the same time? Or how to set up the showcase so that the categories will look better in Roku?

you cant using the Vimeo feed , 

if you want multiple categories and if you want control over your content like what goes where , you need another solution , like a proper json feed.

you can code it manually - you will find a lot of samples if you look in the forum

or you can use a tool - software , you can find some of those too - especially in the signatures or the more active users.

If you are not technical, dont have the knowledge of Roku Direct Publisher JSON feed, and you are looking for a robust solution to manage your content feed, then I would recommend our OTTfeed.com platform, it was designed to bridge the gap between Vimeo Pro and Roku Direct Publisher.
