Avia For Roku

Avia For Roku Quick Look: The Avia Roku channel works in conjunction with the Avia Media Player app to cast photos, videos, and music from an Android device to a Roku device on the same network. In addition to casting media stored on your Android device, you can access media from your Facebook, Dropbox, and Google Plus accounts, as well as from DLNA-enabled home network devices.

To get started, you will need to download and install the Avia app from Google Play. You will need to make an in-app purchase to unlock casting, and then you'll be able to select which Roku (or Chromecast) device you want to cast to. You Roku should prompt you to install the channel and you'll then be able to cast.

The app will find media on your Android device, but you will need to enable DNLA linking and set up external accounts. For more help, the Android app includes tutorial videos. Until you have installed the Android app and unlocked casting, you won't find any information on the Roku channel except information on downloading the app.

All things considered, Avia is an excellent choice for owners of Android devices who want an integrated app that will cast music, video, and photos from multiple sources. However, if you aren't an Android user, or don't want to tethered to another device, or you stream media from only one source, there are several other options available in the channel store's Screensavers & Apps and Photos & Videos categories.
