Re: Stream PC Audio to Roku - Illustrated Tutorial

Yes, thanks to belltown again, this method is now obsolete unless you are still using Win XP. The new method linked in the post above is the way to go!

Re: Stream PC Audio to Roku - Illustrated Tutorial

I am trying to do this, but no luck with xp There is a missing picture in the explanation: 7. In the next dialog, type mp3 at the end of the Path field and click Stream. It should now say Streaming at the top and bottom of your VLC window. Pasting mp3 at end of does nothing. No mention of firewall ...

Re: Connect Roku 3 to PC without Router?

Chiming in late here just to confirm that Gilgamesh's suggestion of using a second router to create a separate network does work. I bought a used router at a thrift store about a year ago to accomplish the same goal.

Re: alternative to Plex?

Getting back to the OP's question, I agree with Gilgamesh that Roksbox is a good channel for streaming local media. You can keep it simple by making it just find your files, or you can make it look pretty with a little effort. I like Plex and think it works fine. It's not perfect, but it's pretty da...

Re: Streaming music wirelesslely to iPod dock

There are several Roku apps with which you can stream from a network server to the Roku. The Roku would have to be connected to the ipod dock with an audio cable, presuming there's some type of stereo input jack on the dock.

The free apps that jump to mind are Plex and Mainsqueeze.

Re: ShoutCast Problems

Is there anyway toa ccess this channel in the UK? When I try to add it, I'm told it's not available in my region, although the Shoutcast site works fine on a computer.
