Thumbnail could not be downloaded / Required video url is unreachable.

Anyone else running into these errors? 

Our json feed is valid. At random times, Roku will say that a handful of our videos and thumbnails aren't working. But, the links work fine. Errors will go away for a while, then a few weeks later pop back up. Not always the same files/links. 

The errors are:

'#' items have error: Required video url is unreachable.
 items have error: Thumbnail could not be downloaded.[/font][/size][/color]

Could this be a permissions issue with your video hosting service?

That would be my thought also.  It could also be a bandwidth limitation with the hosting company.

Re: Thumbnail could not be downloaded / Required video url is unreachable.

Thanks for the input guys. 

Permissions are all good.

No bandwidth limits. 

The errors occur randomly. 

At 3pm on 11/11 I was getting 17 urls and 38 thumbnails "unreachable".

Then at 2:35am on 11/12 I was getting 10 urls and 31 thumbnails "unreachable".
