MRSS channel Plays only 1 video out of 10

Hello,
   I've been trying to figure this out for a few days. I have 10 videos being fed via an MRSS file http://www.celllifechurch.tv/roku_mrss_feed.xml
   The feed validates. However when I pull the channel up on 2 different Rokus (A Roku 3 and a Roku 2) they display all 10 videos in the categories they are set for, but only one plays. The channel URL is https://my.roku.com/add/NL5ZLK
   Can someone help me with this? I'm obviously missing something.

Thanks,
Brian

Re: MRSS channel Plays only 1 video out of 10

In case anyone else is having this problem, here is what I found.
We have a weekly live webcast that we stream through YouTube. I was downloading the videos in MP4 format from YouTube after live webcast completion. It was these videos that would not play on the Rokus. The one video that did play was one we pre-recorded with our streaming system. I have run all of the MP4s that I downloaded from YouTube through an application called HandBrake (https://handbrake.fr/) and re-uploaded the "converted" MP4s and they play perfectly.
The only thing I can surmise is YouTube is doing something in the encoding that prevents the videos from playing on the Roku.
I hope this helps anyone having this problem.
