Vimeo is a great online video platform (OVP) used by many businesses and individuals as their content delivery network (CDN), video storage for their OTT apps like Roku or FireTV.
You can directly connect Vimeo to your Roku Direct Publisher channel by adding a JSON feed from your Vimeo showcase TV apps. However, this will only show one category on the Roku channel. This is the biggest limitation of Vimeo, which is not enough for most businesses and individuals.
That is why we created the OTTfeed platform, to bridge the gap between Vimeo and Roku. With OTTfeed you can manage all your videos with ease and speed to create categories, series, seasons, and playlists.
In addition, OTTfeed platform allows you to create ad breaks for each video for your AVOD model.
Here is how to super charge your Roku channel with OTTfeed in few steps:
- Sign up for an OTTfeed account.
- Connect your Vimeo Pro account by generating a Vimeo API access token.
- Import the video’s metadata from Vimeo.
- Add tags and any additional metadata.
- Create groups and playlists with tags or video titles.
- Publish your feed.
