ROKU requires Plex or Playon on PC but

Does the WD TV live automatically recognize the My Book Live Network drive; or is software required on a PC in the network?  I have two Roku boxes and have tried using the PlayOn media server software and PLEX software but its just clumsy and not always on (started).

If the My Book Live and WD TV Live are not dependent on intermediary software installed on a PC in the network, I think gift myself a few WD TV boxes, please confirm if you know.

Thanks in advance for your time and expertise.


You don’t need to install any additional software to share files from the MBL to the WD TV.
