Does the Roku Player use Adobe Flash?

Considering the unending security problems with Adobe Flash on other platforms, I have to wonder: Does the Roku Player use Flash for rendering YouTube videos, etc? If so, is there a way to switch to a more stable rendering platform, HTML5 for example?

Thanks

Re: Best 5GHz channel for Streaming Stick?

After some trial and error, I settled on channel 157 (5.785 GHz), as the other channels were not recognized by the Streaming Stick. I'll try some of the other DD-WRT settings (channel width, extension channel) when I get some spare time. (Interestingly enough, the WiFi-direct for the remote also ope...

Best 5GHz channel for Streaming Stick?

Doing some experimenting here with my Streaming Stick and my Netgear R7000. The DD-WRT firmware on the Netgear allows me to select a wireless channel, or let the router choose one automatically. I've noticed with the "automatic" channel setting the Streaming Stick often does not see the 5G...

Did you check it under load?


Ah-ha! The power supply's performance under load was less than stellar. I'll find another PSU and give it a try, but I'll bet that will solve my problem.

Thanks

Soundbridge M1001 gone dark

My SoundBridge had gone dark. :( No display action, no network connection, nothing. The first thing I checked was the power supply, but my multi-meter reports a steady 5 VDC so that's not the problem. Are there any diagnostics I can try or is there a way to force some kind of internal reset? Is ther...

Alas, you cannot use this on your Blackberry as the Yahoo Widget Engine runs only on Windows and the Mac.

The new iTunes seems to share properly with my M1001 on both my WinXP box and my Mac Mini. I haven't done any 'extensive' tests yet, but it looks safe to install 7.4.

Re: Vista Sidebar

Do you have any interest or any plans to turn your yahoo widget into a vista sidebar gadget or are you partial/exclusive to yahoo? I am sure that would much appreciated by many. Porting to another gadget/widget system is something I'm considering, but that effort is on the back burner for now. The ...

For future update/revision it's maybe a small step to show "now playing" in msn-messenger?


By this do you mean the "what I'm listening to" option that MSN Messenger has to let your contacts see the names of the songs you are playing?
