making a stupid mistake need a second set of eyes HELP PLEASE!!

I have a published channel and all was good, then needed to just make a small change to a single video entry in the json and rebpublish.
now it tells me that it imported 50 videos and 201 have release date errors... Yet when I go into the chnnel it shos only the first video in the index not even the other 49 tht supposedly were injested.
I know this is not possibly the case, since the json file published a couple years ago no problem and all I did was change the url to the very first video in the json file..

The json file also passes JSONLint with no problem..

Here's an excerpt (since the entire json file is huge) with the actual paths changed...

If anyone can help I will be much obliged....

Your bottom two 'Release Dates' have a different time format. Release date is only YYYY-MM-DD, you put a full code date/time stamp that belongs in "Last Updated" field.

I know I'm late to the party, but, this is the sort of error my software can pick up easily.

Re: making a stupid mistake need a second set of eyes HELP PLEASE!!

Remember I tried the software but ran into memory problems, with over 5000 videos scripts just can't handle it all. I create my json files from sql using classic asp on a 2012r2 server, once I get the json lingo correct it just automats the process..

Working on putting all the videos into one channel, that'll be over 25K total videos, since I run entire tv series like bonanza, bev hill billies, ozzy & harriet etc etc plu all the pro wrestling and independant films I have rights to..

It shouldn't be too hard to make it link to acces, mysql, sql server then. Just different connect statements, miimal sql statements.... I use to develop for a company that did copier service support software and the most powerfull part of the software was being able to create our own custom sql connect and query statements..
