New liveFeed in Direct Publisher

In Aug 23rd a blog post has been published introducing liveFeed in Direct Publisher.
https://blog.roku.com/developer/direct- ... r-livefeed

I tried the instruction and it didn't work for me. It makes a page (just like movies) and my live stream (tested)  is not selectable.
has anyone tried this one?

Did you specify a validity date span?  I'm not sure that would cause your problem, but, I believe it controls when a live stream is active.

Update

If your DP version is 1.3 liveFeed will not going to work for you.

After the channel update, it is working fine.

Re: New liveFeed in Direct Publisher

Hi,

my app was updated to 1.2 yesterday and my channels stopped playing after that. Everything looks fine but when I click on a channel icon nothing happens and it doesn't play the video. Any idea why could it be?

Re: New liveFeed in

I think the problem shows up when you use the same "id" in different video types. (or even on two different playlists) For my case I moved the shortFormVideos to liveFeeds using the same ids. And then updated the playlist url. So i think that created a conflict. Then i started to return 404 for the old feed url because roku was still polling it. I also started to return 404 for the m3u8 files listed on the old playlist. This fixed the issue but this is definitely a work around.

I updated the query names in the categories field. I think this also helped.
