No contents on my roku device

Jump to solution

Hello Roku communities! Please excuse my ignorance. I have a Roku Channel that someone developed for me. I received an email from Roku saying the channel is published. When I check in my Roku device, I see the channel, but nothing is playing. The person who developed the channel for me made me subscribed to castr.io so I can get my content on Roku., I have been playing videos on castr.io for several days, but nothing show up on Roku. Could someone guide me please on how to get my content play on Roku and creating categories? 

Once again, please forgive my ignorance. I am new to this world.

Hi @ManyPau  , welcome 

1 if your channel was approved by Roku you have some content on it , they don't approve empty channels. 

For the category part , if you have a Direct Publisher channel , categories are "built" by "attaching a tag to a video in the json feed , then based on that tag you setup a category in your Roku Account / Channel Settings.

castr.io is mainly for live streaming from what i know  , do you want to use more live streams or .....  need more info on this

but the person who developed the channel for you should have show / told you all this Smiley Happy

Thank you so much for your help. The person who develop the channel made me buy the castr.io subscription. If you could help me have more information on how to get my contents on the channel I will be very glad. I don't usually use livestream. When I do, there are a lot of other platform I can use to do that.
