Roku iOS app for streaming

August 9, 2013

Play on Roku lets you stream photos and music directly from your mobile phone to your TV via your Roku. Now Roku launches an update to the Roku iOS app  which also adds the ability to stream videos you’ve taken with your iOS device directly to your TV. Supported devices include iPhone (3gs and later), iPad, and iPod Touch (3rd gen and later).

This new feature is supported by version 5.1 of the Roku player firmware which was released for all customers with a Roku 3, Roku 2, Roku HD (model 2500) or Roku LT (models 2400 & 2450) player or the Roku Streaming Stick. In addition to video streaming from iPhone and the usual minor bug fixes and performance improvements, the 5.1 update also adds support for audiophile-requested FLAC and WAV audio file formats. The USB Media Player channel has been updated to support these formats.
