roku mac 10.6 client

Thu Oct 15, 2009 5:01 am


i spent a few weeks putting together a simple control app for the roku for osx, as there didn't seem to be any mac clients around. it allows you to browse the library, queue files and select from the now playing queue and play radio presets only (this is all i use the roku for).

you can get it here:

hope it is useful for someone.

ps i think it will only work on 10.6, used a few new apis [/url]

Thanks for putting that together. There are other options as well.

Soundbridge Commander works fine on both OS X 10.5 and 10.6.

yes, soundbridge commander works fine, but has most of the problems of the device itself, namely that you only have one or two rows to browse artists with, which gets pretty frustrating when you have a reasonable amount of music stored.

otherwise, it is a much more professional and complete app than mine, and has searching functionality etc which i did not bother with because i never use.

Wow! Thanks so much. I just got my iMAC and was hoping that there was something out there that could do the same thing as I had on the PC.

Thanks again!!!! This is great!!!!!!
