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..

Roku 4200X - Roku 3

@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?

Roku can't handle Alex's drumming.

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.

@thomasvivaldi: Relinking totally worked! Thank you!!!

And I absolutely agree about the addition of the newer categories :)

I keep having to re-link my app to get premium content, has happened at a rate of about once every couple weeks. Anybody else having this issue?

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.

I am also getting a crash every time I try to open the Extra Life category.

@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.
