I recently bought a Roku Digital Video Player, and really wanted to watch Giant Bomb videos on it. Roku offers an SDK, and Whiskey offers an API, so it seemed like a match made in heaven. I've been developing this for a couple weeks, and I'm just about done with the initial release candidate. More features will come after 1.0 is released, but here's what I have so far.
Coming Soon, but after version 1.0: - Search for videos - Listen to Podcasts
Planned, but not currently supported by the Whiskey API - Tested / Screened / Anime Vice - Filter videos into categories (Quick Looks, Endurance Runs, etc) - HD Videos
I''m still polishing things up, but this should be available as a free download on the Roku Channel Store soon.
Is it possible to query the API for all videos of a certain type? (For example, get all "Quick Looks", "Endurance Runs", etc, just like how they're categorized on http://www.giantbomb.com/videos.) From what I can tell, there isn't a specific way to do this currently.
I can get HTML that lists all of the Quick Looks here: http://www.giantbomb.com/video/get-subnav-content/?video_type=3?page=1 ...but parsing HTML isn't ideal.
What would really be awesome is if I could do this from the API. Something like this would return all Quick Look videos from Giant Bomb sorted by publish date:
