My book live and Roku 3500 Streaming Stick

Hi All, 

I’m thinking of getting the new Rocku 3500 streaming stick but would like to know if anyone has had any experience straming from My book Live (2tb), if so will it stream all types of movies stored on hard disk?

Unfortunately, i really can’t afford the WD TV Live Streaming Media Player.

Any help appreciated.

I have never tried streaming to a Rocku. Lets see what Rocku users can share with us.

From Roku Media Player

The Roku Media Player channel 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 — MKV (H.264), MP4 (H.264), MOV (H.264), WMV (VC-1, firmware 3.1 only)

Music — AAC, MP3, WMA, FLAC (firmware 5.3 and later), WAV (firmware 5.3 and later)

Photo — JPG, PNG, GIF (non-animated)

You are limited to those file types.  I have a Roku LT and played mp4 files from My Book Live using the WD DLNA server and previous installedTwonky DLNA server.
