More questions from a novice---Roku documentation reads like this:
If you do not have an ad server yet, but want to test the ad implementation your Direct Publisher channel, you can use the following test ad servers:
Roku test ad server URL: https://go.roku.com/rokuadserverURL
VAST 2.0 XML samples: http://www.iab.com/insights/vast-2-0-xml-samples-for-testing.
If someone has the time or cares to--what steps do I need to follow to put one of these test ads into the form where its looking for an ad server URL on the monetization page of my channel in order to test ad breaks? Appreciate any assistance. Slow going to get responses from Roku.
Not sure exactly what you're asking but I would suggest putting the 'Test url' into the Monetization field where it says 'Ad Serve URL'.
Really I'm not sure it accomplishes much as its only a demo ad server url I would think. Also its probably 3 or 4 years old and wouldn't surprise me if Roku dropped support of it for some reason or another. So it may not even work at that, causing some error or something.
Keep in mind, defining an 'adBreak' doesn't mean you will see an actual ad. Ad servers may not have an available ad when your feed requests it.
