You may noticed that ROKU Channel and Direct Publisher using the same software. Today I checked the ROKU Channel and found the Matrix trilogy in a subcategory. I'm wondering our Jason feed and DP system has this capability and it's not published in feed spec!! Again It would be very useful if we have subcategory in DP.
it would also be nice to be able to have more videos in each category and a lot more categories available. As well as a push notification that simply would send the video id to a webpage on the host server to keep track of videos being watched in real time..
I took a look at the Roku channel. I think what you're seeing is a series with multiple (3) episodes. That capability is available in the current spec. What isn't available is the way they format the episodes into a horizontal layout. The default layout for episodes appears to be vertical.
FREE Windows desktop software for creating BIF (Trick Play), Direct Publisher (MRSS, JSON), and FireTV feeds @ https://github.com/rrirower. No programming knowledge required.
You may be right. But there is no Series name or episode number and horizontal layout so I think it is a kind of subcategory in movies. If you look at the movies in feed spec in content section it says:
One or more video files. For non-adaptive streams, you can specify the same video with different qualities so the Roku player can choose the best one based on bandwidth.
We may add more video files! Also we may add more different quality too. I have to try add more video to a same content and see what's going on there.
