Valid JSON but only two thirds of my videos show up

I currently have 34 videos that are ingested properly on my Roku feed but only 24 of those videos are showing up on the channel. We've had the channel for nearly three years and I simply copy and paste the JSON code for new items and update the data fields. I've read other topics and changed the url feed name and did a refresh and updated, but still having the same issue. I validated the JSON file online as well, no problems there. I don't think it's a category issue because I've copied and pasted from other items that ingested and showed up on the channel. A bit stumped. I use Amazon S3 buckets for the JSON feed. I switched from JW Player as the CDN over to Vimeo, didn't have the issue with JW, but I can't see where there is any fault with Vimeo. Attaching URL code if anyone can help. Hopefully it's my error but I can't find it.

Re: Valid JSON but only two thirds of my videos show up

Is there a rhyme or reason to the videos missing?

I'd guaess tags or categories. Otherwise, could they have been copied & pasted together? (Possibly the first one had a wrond release date, like 12/2020, and all the others copied it. Otherwise check the Vimeo settings & make sure its not private & such

Can you indicate what videos in your feed do not show?

Re: Valid JSON but only two thirds of my videos show up

Thanks for responses. Date format seems fine, Vimeo settings are set for public. The category that's not showing videos with the exception of one is "Bands" category. Vids below aren't showing on the channel, but ingested properly according to feed status.  I can't find the issue, maybe it's staring right at me.

There is an issue going on for many of us where it will show up in the unpublished channel but not the published channel.

Re: Valid JSON but only two thirds of my videos show up

After validating your feed file, two things jump out at me.  I don't know if they would cause your problem:

  • You use "HLS" as the video type even though your content does not appear to be streaming.
  • You've defined a category ("Bands") with the same name as a tag ("Bands").

Re: Valid JSON but only two thirds of my videos show up

I ultimately didn't change anything and it magically started working and the phantom videos started appearing. I wish I could explain why. I just updated the playlist with a new round of videos. I'll see if these make it into the channel on the first time around. Thank you for the replies.
