The New Year Started With a Bang for Some Roku Owners
« on: January 02, 2018, 05:26:27 AM »
Developer of Ad-Free m3u Black Player Calls it Quits on Roku. Now it's Back!

January, 1 2018 the developer of the super popular ad-free m3u Black Player called it quits and removed the ad-free playlist player from Roku. Only thing we know is he did not agree with Roku's new developer terms. Hopefully, it will be a short-lived New Years resolution and at some point the developer may once again decide to bring the channel back. When your Roku updates, the channel will be gone.

On Jan 2 it went back up again with the same channel code using the GitHub repository. So it can still be used although it will no longer have any new features or updates. So it is what it is, and continues to be ad free.

RIP m3u Black Player We Will Miss You - Glad You Came Back!

Roku did not remove the channel as it did not host any content

There is still the Red m3u Player which is available as a public channel and still works fine. It has ads but it also has the option to add your links from an attached USB storage device. This is super handy if you own a Roku model that supports this like an Roku Ultra, Roku 4 and Roku 3.

By adding your playlists from USB storage you won't need to type in long URLs so there is less chance of typos which will keep your playlist from loading.

Spoke with the Roku Red Playlist Player developer yesterday and there are no plans of removing this channel. They are just going to keep updating it with the new Roku SDK software which should make it work even better sometime in 2018.

You can learn more about the Red playlist player and add it here.
