If you don't get a Roku solution, YouTube will carry the Pac-12 Network/s for international viewers. I know of a few who are setting-up VPN's in Canada, Mexico and elsewhere to view the games on YouTube...

I know I could Google it but not sure I would understand it. Could anyone explain how to set up an international VPN? I have a lot of people who would like to watch the Memphis UCLA game this Saturday.

In order to access the contents from the a USB device, First you have to add the
Roku Media Player channel
, which enables you to play back personal video, music
and photo files from a DLNA server on your local network or a USB drive attached
to a USB equipped Roku.


The following media file formats are supported:
Video %u2014 MKV (H.264), MP4 (H.264), MOV (H.264), WMV (VC-1, firmware 3.1
only)
Music %u2014 AAC, MP3, WMA, FLAC (firmware 5.3 and later), WAV (firmware 5.3 and
later)
Photo %u2014 JPG, PNG, GIF (non-animated) @@@@@@ @@@@@@ @@

Lets see, 4 video formats, 5 music, 3 photo.

Every file type under the sun!!

Except about 100 more!

But NOT iso, vob, etc.

Plus, you need to install:

"In order to access the contents from the a USB device, First you have to add the Roku Media Player channel"

And to do this, they want my credit card #, even tho theres no charge, "We'll only charge you if you buy something". (from another roku email)

I'll pass on roku, I will return it.

Where to buy 'Popcorn'? It seems one must buy it from the Phillipines.?

you misunderstood. i said you got the wrong box if you want to play every file under the sun. i didnt say the roku plays every file under the sun. the roku is an internet streamer, not a local file player. you want to play local files on it? you use those formats that it supports or you get a media server like plex that will play almost everything on it. or..you buy a local file player.

OTA | Netflix | Hulu+ | Amazon Prime | MLB.tv & MLS Live with No Blackouts!
