No Valid items found in feed

Hi, I am having trouble with my JSON file I wrote. I followed the feed specifications (I think) and made everything public on my AWS buckets. JSONlint.com says I don't have any errors in my code, so I am confused as to why I am getting "No valid items were found in feed" from the feed status. Here ismy JSON file https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/liferoku2/Test/Roku_My_Code.json

Thanks for the help!

I have the same issue. I try to upload MP4 but somehow system changing constantly my setting to roku format only. That is why probably we are getting an error. So far I do not know why is doing that.

Okay, I took a break and looked at it again. I spelled "shortForm" "shorForm". It worked after I fixed it. Maybe yours is something similar?

I think you may want to take a closer look at your feed file you posted.  I loaded your feed into the software I wrote and it reported the following errors:


Error converting value "faith" to type 'System.String[]'. Path 'shortFormVideos[0].tags', line 60, position 18.
0000001 is a duplicate 'id'.


Tags are string arrays.  Your feed shows it as a string.

If you post your feed, I can take a look at it.

Thanks a bunch! I didn't realize that. I fixed it.

The software reports the following:

Empty 'category' object found in feed file.

An empty Category object in your feed file will probably cause problems when ingested by Roku.  You must either specify your categories in the Developer Portal, or, in the feed file.  

In addition, you've got lots of other empty objects in the feed file.  While they may not cause an immediate problem, it's not a good idea to code empty objects in the feed file.  This typically happens when you code the feed file by hand.
