JSON file length maximum

Does anyone know if there's a max limit to the size of our JSON file or the number of videos a channel can have?

My channel currently has 315 videos, ~8000 lines of code, a little less than 250kb in size. 

I get a little nervous having come from the old Roku SDK where all the categories were conveniently separated into their own, short xml files.

Re: JSON file length maximum

I seem to remember the following limitations for DP. 25 rows of 40 "items". Where, an "item" is not necessarily one video. It can be a series of videos. There's no limit on the physical size of the feed file. The Roku partner site details these limitations.

Re: JSON file length maximum

If you use .json file to set the playlist, there is no 40 item limitation.

I don't know of any limitations with JSON files. As an FYI, one of my DP channels's JSON file has over 20,000+ lines with 842 videos and is 678kb.

The limitations were posted by RokuTomC, but they might have changed since it was posted here -
