The Extra Life show category makes the roku channel crash. All the rest of show categories are fine.

I really want to see that FMV game they played on Extra Life, shown in the recent Best Of video. Back to the browser player I go..

@bummey: I also have seen this too. The crash also happens if you select the E3 category and scroll along. Seems to be something to do with the length of the videos?

When launching the (Beta) Roku app a few days ago, I noticed that several video categories are now missing (Gotta God Hand!, Mass Alex, VinnyVania as just a few examples). Anyone else having this issue?

Oh, and I’m also experiencing the issue of the app crashing when trying to select the new Extra Life category.

@anitablake10:

You might have to relink your account. A week or two ago the app reset or something and if you're not premium it hides the premium categories.

Also, they've add a Breaking Brad and Binding of Patrick category and I couldn't be happier.

Yeah, typically that happens to me when I need to relink.

I definitely am still getting the crash over Extra Life just upon selecting it, still. Haven't tried E3.

Is there any plans to enable the ability to watch UPF on the app? Right now all it has is GB infinite and when I tried to watch the Game Awards last night it never showed up under the Live tab. For some reason it also says I need a twitch client to use the Live function.

Also maybe its just me but it will just go into sleep mode in the middle of a video sometimes.

@rorie So what's happening with this? Do you know if there is any movement on developing it further?

Has anyone else noticed over the last few days a potential uploading issue for the newest videos on the Roku app? Most recently, when the newest GBE Playdate and PokéMonday Night Combat were posted, they show as “0:00” time code and a lock icon in the lower right corner.

At first, I thought it was an issue with my Premium account not being linked, but everything was ok there (I even unlinked then re-linked a few times, just in case). Then I realized that I could access all of the other Premium content, just not the most recently posted items....

@anitablake10: I have been noticing this as well. My TV has a built in Roku (TCL) and it forces my whole TV to reboot if I select the broken video. Right now I can't open up the entire Playdate tab since it just crashes as soon as that opens

This was related to an encoding issue on those videos but should be resolved now, I believe.

The Mega UPF video doesn't load, it just kicks me back to the main screen.

@bummey: Does that with the extra life video too. Probably an issue with any video over 3 hrs long.

@rorie Are there any plans on ever adding a search to the Roku app? I don't understand how it is still missing after all those years? It seems like such a no brainer to me for an app like that?

Thanks!

Updated the GB Roku Side Load Beta App. The logic to finagle a lower bitrate stream has been fixed so the Extra Life videos and some of the older videos like those in the TANG category should work now. Premium shows/videos will be shown regardless if you're premium again since the sudden disappearance of shows cause confusion when the app delinks. The much requested live streaming has been added, it will appear in the big slot and push the recent videos below (On app load).

@frobie:

I noticed that after the app updated some older content doesn't play at all. For example all of metal gear scanlon 4 and 5. It either just sits at retrieving or it kicks you right back out of the video.

Also all videos now default to the lowest quality setting. For example Redout quick look is a blurry mess, sonic team racing looks like its 480p

I was too aggressive in getting the older videos to load. Just pushed an update to fix scanlon and boost the bitrate.

I've been having trouble accessing the E3 content via the Roku app. I get a message saying I need to link my account. AFter delinking and relinking it persists. I'm able to access the E3 content via the site without any issue though.

@citizenlowell Is this issue for the entire catalogue of E3 content or just the most recent videos?

@frobie: all videos seem to be playing in low quality now and also the live function didn't seem to work when I tried. I had the splash screen with music running well past when the stream actually started.

@xanadu

When you hit play on the live stream, it will always start at the beginning. You'll need to fast forward to get to the live point. I'm looking into a way to jump it there at start. For the quality, could I ask you to delete and side-load the beta app again? A change was made recently to remove the 700 bitrate video files as an option but the change didn't seem to have propagated to everyone's roku automatically.
