RokuGuide Quick Look: The MyMedia app from PlayOn lets you stream videos, photos, and music from a desktop or laptop computer to a Roku-connected TV. What sets this Roku app apart from several others is that it will convert media to a Roku-compatible format if necessary.
As with other computer-to-Roku streaming media apps, the computer and the Roku device must be on the same WiFi or LAN network. Sorry, but videos on your home computer can't streamed to friends are relatives. You will also need to download and install the MyMedia server software onto your computer.
Here is a full list of MyMedia features as provided on the PlayOn website:
The necessary software, along with full instructions for setting up the software and streaming media to your Roku, are provided at the MyMedia website link below.
