I haven't made a laundry list of every possible thing, but any number video data are available from you tube videos to television reruns from sources other than those associated with Roku, to just showing family photos in a larger format, to surfing the web.
I have not seen this topic covered in any of the written materials that came with the player. But it is an output device that is connected to a wireless network. Currently, it uses the network to connect directly to the internet, but it seems reasonable that it might be able to communicate with other devices on the wireless network of which it is a part. I can communicate with other devices on the network so it seemed reasonable that there might be a way to control the Roku player for streaming other types of data.
I thought that perhaps a forum for Roke users/enthusiasts might be a place to try.
