Feed Status

Hi Everyone, 
I switched over feed over my a SDK to direct feed and got it to half way work at one point, but now when trying to finalize it I'm getting errors in the feed status. I have made sure the thumbnail is the correct size, tried both png and jpeg and nothing. As far as the feed goes it should be working fine as I can pull it up in VLC. Below is my json, any suggestion? 

  • 1 item has an error: No valid items were found in the feed: validate
  • 1 item has an error: Thumbnail must be 16x9 aspect ratio, at least 800w x 450h, and either in JPG or PNG format.
