Roku App for online and offline viewing with subtitles

Postby paulw » Tue Apr 14, 2015 5:25 pm

Several places throughout the forum I've seen people wondering how to play subtitles for downloaded videos for whatever classes they happen to be teaching that Sunday. I've also noticed there's no convenient way to mass download video content in languages besides English. As there are 3 non-English languages in my stake it becomes terribly difficult to pre-download all of the content for teachers to easily use during their classes.

Because of this I started a project to make all of the content from videos.lds.org and the mobile Gospel Library app in all of its languages available for viewing using a custom Roku channel. It's still a work in progress but it is quite usable as-is.

If you're interested in using this in any way there is additional documentation (along with source code) on the project's releases page at https://github.com/paulwhiting/GospelLibraryVideos/releases

The Roku app itself is handy for every day use as well. You can add it to your Roku by going to https://owner.roku.com/add/gospellibraryvideos

Suggestions and feedback welcome!
