JSON HLS live feed ,, still wont work

Can anyone shed some light on how to make this work. This is my JSON file and it seems to have some issues because my feed status has been stuck "updating".

Any suggestions please

Try a capital "HLS", and it'll need a thumbnail image. Could be one of those two.

Chris...Here's what the Json Feed Manager reports when opening your feed file:

Could not convert string to integer: 99:00:00. Path 'shortFormVideos[0].content.duration', line 29, position 22.

Empty 'category' object found in feed file.

It looks like you tried to code the file by hand.  Correct the mistakes mentioned above and those mentioned by 37mediagroup.
FREE Windows desktop software for converting Direct Publisher channels to SceneGraph (SDK), for creating BIF (Trick Play) files, Roku (MRSS, JSON) feed files, and FireTV feed files @ GitHub/rrirower.
