I am a new user of Roku XS, still learning so be easy on me. I am still going through the threads. So some questions, including Plex
My idea behind getting a Roku was, I am not interested in setting up a HTPC, although have a laptop collecting dust (Wife Acceptability Factor is very low with HTPC) but now it turns out, Plex is mentioned here too many times for use, like watching YouTube, your own content. I wonder why these functionalities can not added in Roku? I know the issue with YouTube and Roku (Still its one of the top 10 channels, viewtopic.php?f=28&t=52048, how do they do it?)
Is there any alternative to Plex that I can use, without running laptop on the same network?
XS has a USB port but in my couple of attempts, it failed to recognize USB drive (FAT32), that is nicely recognized by my Philips DVD player, hence searching for a back up plan.
Many thanks in advance.
