I've been getting videos randomly crashing pretty frequently over the past couple days. Just had it happen 5 times on 7/28 FriDota, and Steal My Sunshine Episode 3.

No Caption Provided

Upon crash my screen cuts to multi-colored pixelated fuzz/lines, and audio cuts to white noise/fuzz before I get dumped back to the video intro screen.

Anyone else experiencing this bug?

Edit: Grabbed pic.

I just got this for the first time at the 1 hour mark of Steal My Sunshine Episode 5. Same as before with the video stops, I hit the right arrow button to fast forward one tick and it started playing as normal.

happened again at 1:15:XX

No app crashing or static, but I'm getting this video stopping fairly frequently now.

https://www.giantbomb.com/videos/quick-look-hellblade-senuas-sacrifice/2300-12429/ stops at 17 minutes. One tick on fast forward and it begins to play again.

Did I just see "Taking an arrow to the knee" on the loading screen text? :|

Sometimes videos stop around the 80% mark. The channel doesn't back out to the menu or anything, the video just stops, but the play button doesn't work and I need to fast forward a few seconds to get it running again. I've had it happen maybe 5 times over the past 20 videos. I'll see if I can replicate it.

edit2: https://www.giantbomb.com/videos/kingdom-heartache-episode-01/2300-12407/ stopped at 34 minutes. Same as above, fast forward one tick to get it playing again.

The new update works fine for my Roku 3, though I had to restart the app to get it to recognize my login. Resume works now, but not all the time. I'm not sure why or how to replicate it beyond starting and stopping a few videos until one doesn't have the option to resume.

The Show listings and sort order could still use some work, I don't know if Betting the Farmville is relevant enough for its top listing. Some of the show playlists, Persona 4 Endurance Run (rip P5ER) is a good example, with only 23 episodes in the Shows playlist, could be improved by filling them out.

I just got back from being out of town for a week and the main recent video category doesn't go far enough back to see what I missed, since it only has a capacity of 20 videos; increasing the size of that primary video list and/or adding a search feature would be really handy since scrolling through the aforementioned video playlists is an exercise in frustration.

The new app version is periodically giving me issues, however it seems to run smoothly for the most part.

Is there any way to search out old videos? Or is it completely impossible to watch content not presented within? It seems like I cant access old endurance run episodes and quick looks.

There's no good way that I can see. I've been rewatching the P4 endurance run via youtube, which is also a really bad way to do it! Roku's youtube app is really bad! I have to start videos on my phone then hit the Watch on TV icon to make it start playing on the roku.

The new 2.0 channel works pretty well. Small... gripes? feedback!

It doesn't save position in videos like the web browser player or old channel. For several dumb reasons (including: stepped on the power strip's switch while going to fridge to refill my drink) I was interrupted during episode 15 of Yakuza, and had scan through the 2 hour+ video to find out exactly where I left off.

The default sorting for the video series is odd. Betting the Farmville and the old Video Reviews are higher on the list than active series like Unfinished and GBE Playdate. It takes 21 down button presses to reach Quick Looks. The Persona 4 Endurance Run only lists the first 23 episodes (edit: although it does on the website too. someone didn't finish populating that playlist).

A way to change the sorting scheme would be really helpful. Something like Recently updated, alphabetical, reverse alphabetical, premium first, etc. Maybe the asterisk options button could bring up a sidebar menu with more than just the pairing code; a better way to navigate the various video series, categories and subcategories, video search feature, etc.

Roku's taking their sweet time approving the new channel update, aren't they? I've been using the beta channel since it was announced, but people who aren't visiting the forum regularly must be frustrated.
