Re: help!!!!!!! Video Not Loading/retrieving

This could be a permission error on your server. What are you using for a server and have you tried loading the URL in a browser?
FREE Windows desktop software for converting Direct Publisher channels to SceneGraph (SDK), for creating BIF (Trick Play) files, Roku (MRSS, JSON) feed files, and FireTV feed files @ GitHub/rrirower.

Re: help!!!!!!! Video Not Loading/retrieving

Have you tried putting the video link in the Roku Stream Tester?  It just takes that specific URL without any channel code around it.  that might let you know if it is a XML/JSON error or something wrong with the video stream itself

Here is the page that has the stream tester, it has proven invaluable to me several times. Developer Tools
