How to edit a Roku channel created by someone else

Our church Roku channel was developed by a streaming provider that we are going to drop. We have a Developer account showing the app published by the previous streaming company. We need to make the changes to the account for new media as well as live streams. Any help as far as what we may need to get this going would be greatly appreciated. It may be something easier than we have found just need to be pointed in the right direction and is there a program we need to use for this.

Hi @OnlineMedia 

sorry for your troubles with your provider , it can happen. 

the good news is that they built the channel for you in your Roku account so now you just need to change the tv feed  into a feed that you control and can develop going forward. 

You can develop a tv feed manually ( coding involved) , using templates ( you can find some in this forum) or like you mentioned using programs ( personally i like the last option , easier , faster ,less room for errors , but you will need to learn the program.)

If you have the links to your live stream and thumbnail images it is quite easy. 

you can find some programs in this forum just browse around a little bit.  ( i use the 2 programs in have in my signature but you can find other 3 or 4 also just look around a little bit.) 

I hope it helps.

Aaron,

I looked at your link and wondering if this will be what we are looking for. Is there any screen shoots or videos showing what this program does and how it works. Our biggest issue is to be able to take what the streaming  provider created and has been updating content from us to be able to "take it over" without having to start over.

Re: How to edit a Roku channel created by someone else

@elsolnetwork Note that if El Sol 105 is an Audio only channel (ie. Radio), you can't create or maintain it with Direct Publisher.  More than likely it was created with the SDK and will require knowledge of the BrightScript language.

FREE Windows desktop software for creating BIF (Trick Play), Direct Publisher (MRSS, JSON), and FireTV feeds @ GitHub/rrirower. No programming knowledge required.
