If you have a Roku application powered by Vimeo OTT, your site can be part of Roku Search and Discovery. This allows customers to search all of the content on the Roku platform and find your videos.
In order to be compatible with Roku Search, you’ll need to provide metadata about your videos. If your videos don’t have enough metadata, you’ll see a notice on your site prompting you to add more.
Don’t worry, if you see the prompt, there’s nothing wrong with your Roku app! This is simply an additional feature to help customers find your content.
Specifically, you’ll need to navigate to the Discovery section of your videos and supply a Release Date. This should be the original release date for the content. If this was released in different regions on different dates, you can specify the date per region.
You can also use the Bulk Edit tool to add the Release Date to multiple videos. From your Video page, select multiple videos and then choose Edit > Release Date.
