Regardless of format limits, wirelessly stream any local videos, music, and photos (not web content) to Roku Streaming Players, Roku Streaming Sticks, and Roku TVs without installing additional channels!
No longer you have to spend hours converting the files to “right” formats before playing them with a USB drive. This app allows you to beam your media content directly from your Mac to the big screen, wirelessly! Simple as that!

Ratings and Reviews
Stopped working after a few months
Everything was fine with the application until one day it decided to keep returning to the roku home screen even after the cast had succeeded. Not sure what the problem is as no one seems to have an answer. Definitely disappointed.
Does what it says
Love it! Downloaded this because there aren't any good Christmas movies on Netflix/Prime this year. Now I can watch all my movie files with my parents through their Roku.
Works well. Two negative points: you can't scroll through the film, have to use fast forward. Also can't drag and drop files into the player, have to "open files" and find your file to add to the queue. Otherwise, I love it.
does what i need it to do.. Simple and easy
Great app, and easy to use. verey clean and simple too. Only issue I had was that my playlist will not do continuous play from one video to the next. I have to go back to my macbook to start the next video.
Using Roku Stick and macOS 10.3
Hopefully that feature will be added.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
