NEW METHOD FOR CHANNEL DEPLOYMENT STEPS
SceneGraphDeveloperExtensions (SGDEX) is the Roku SDK
Highly recommended to use the ATOM editor and come back to the developer page for instructions to obtain the Roku Plugin for fast deployment.

Now to make your life so much easier, I found this tool makes life more of a breeze.
https://github.com/rrirower This tool is for creating MRSS and JSON feeds.
FYI : 220.127.116.11 is the final copy of JSON Feed manager to be supported by Windows 7. All newer copies must have Windows 10 for use.
I trust these abilities will help you on your quest, one other important thing I learned the hard way. In this older version of 18.104.22.168 it broke the json feed that ROKU didn’t understand when i used the side load method to my Roku in my case 192.168.0.8 (Living Room). So here is how you avoid having to uncompress the folder a 2nd, 3rd and 4th time. Try this.
After you download a copy of the JSON Feed Manager, click OPEN and locate your file obtained from GITHUB and open the section labeled SAMPLES now pick a number 1-9 and open the folder marked “FEED” this will be a premade JSON labeled feed.json
Note, it will load with several error codes. Except that, and adapt the example to your videos. Other important facts. This new setup assumes a video will be called a MOVIE or SHORTFILM and a group of movies will be adapter as a SERIES
SPOILER! DO NOT CHANGE THESE NAMES, if you alter this again you will break the demo. Somewhere in the Roku Schema it looks for this format you take it away, well it’s a blank screen for you.
Good luck and have fun!
