Re: Closed Captions from Netflix on Roky

This is a dead horse. Roku is never going to do it.
It would be up to Netflix to do it specifically just for roku streaming.

Re: Class action lawsuit against Netflix over closed caption

Hi- I am quite shocked that CC is NOT available. Most TV programs and news have CC. I have some hearing loss, constant buzzing in my ears besides adult ADD so watching movies in the cinema is no longer enjoyable. I tried watching a couple of movies available on Roku and was shocked that CC is not a...

Re: why are roku's new channels crappy?

I found this on their web site maybe this will help you to know if it can be done. Digital audiobooks from OverDrive are available to libraries, schools and retailers in two formats: the DRM-protected OverDrive WMA Audiobook format and the DRM-free OverDrive MP3 Audiobook format. Utilizing the free ...

Re: why are roku's new channels crappy?

once gave out the links to all this but no one is interested in it. You keep saying this, but there was actually quite a bit of interest. The issue with it is two fold... 1) most popular eBooks include DRM, and 2) the current Roku SDK doesn't provide a workable/reliable method of presenting large a...

Re: why are roku's new channels crappy?

I'm not 100% sure, but wouldn't the audio book files need to be hosted somewhere and streamed, instead of just downloaded? if downloaded locally, and they're in a non-protected format the Roku can play, then any number of the existing channels for streaming your local music collection should be abl...

Re: why are roku's new channels crappy?

[quote="stratcat96well I have read here on the forum that the Roku has a real problem with text rendering ala pages of a document(s). There have been requests before for an e-reader-type channel and that lack of capability was cited for why it wasn't really possible[/quote] How about an AUDIO e...

Re: YouTube

i got lost in all this back & forth. Why not just use the private channel youtube ( code B8VVK ) It is no longer available due to a request from youtube. If you have the channel, you have it, but if you want to install it, you can't anymore - the code doesn't work. So, make sure you don't delet...

Re: [Private Channel] My Channels: home screen channel organ

I've been playing around with this today and it looks great! The only thing I wish I could do is easily organize the rows in alphabetic order starting at the left side of the screen (yes, I'm one of those people ). I tried rearranging them with the current system of choosing channel position by num...

Re: [Private Channel] My Channels: home screen channel organ

Sure wish i could get the INSTANT WATCH BROWSER button.
Any chance of that happening soon ?
I too had trouble hitting the OK button.
But i was so zoned into getting the channels added i didn't care.
Plus you did warn us it was in beta.
Glad you fixed it. :D
