- Some MP4s created on Android devices may not work since Roku doesn't support all codecs. It depends on the Android device. Also, the Roku doesn't support videos taken in portrait mode.

Life Changing! Using this app has forced me to take responsibility and get with the times. Turns out my problems were with my "old" device and how it had become outdated. App itself is actually pretty cool and progressing nicely. Everybody is a critic, yet at the end of the day, you can't really judge a work in progress...as we hum merrily along.

DROPPED rating due to YOU not answering complaints. NOT updating! | (Was) GREAT idea & execution. Had a hiccup, vendor was ON IT like me on Danica Patrick...DOH!!!... I had installed paid app over demo, deleted demo, no workee. Deleted & re-installed app, powered off & on, BINGO, works great, no lag, no loss of quality. Asus TF-101 EeePad 32Gb, w/keyboard module & latest release OEM OS version.
