How to Stream Supported Video to a TV from a Mobile Device via Roku

If you have the video formats that Roku accepts, you can only cast them from phones to your TV via Roku, as long as you have an Apple device with iOS 4.3 or later, or Android phones or tablets like Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy S IV, Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Motorola Moto X, HTC One, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Google Nexus 7 (2012), Google Nexus 7 (2013).

Note: Though Roku doesn’t support beaming videos from your PC to TV officially, you can find the solution here instead.

The $50 Roku Stick and $100 Roku 3 box work with apps for iOS or Android mobile devices (but not computers). Both streaming media players require an HDTV with an available HDMI port. The Roku devices are standalone devices with physical remotes and hundreds of content channels. They also offer some media streaming and a Chromecast-like ability to retrieve online streams synchronized to what is playing on a mobile device. (Learn how to Setup and Use Chromecast for video casting)

For iOS and Android phones, Roku has a free app that acts as both a remote control for the set-top box and a slinging tool. By selecting the top-right-corner menu, you will find a “Play on Roku” option. This allows you to play photos and music–but not video–from your phone on your TV.

To play video, you can open compatible mobile apps, currently limited to those from YouTube and Netflix. When you open the YouTube app, for example, a beaming icon on top allows you to connect to the Roku box and play videos via the box on your TV. Anything you choose on the phone is then played on the big screen, using the same technology to sync video that Chromecast employs. The same can be performed using the Netflix app on an Android or iOS phone.

Roku has introduced Miracast/WiDi capabilities as a beta feature with its Roku 3 and Roku Streaming Stick devices. To activate, update either of these devices to software version 5.6.60. Simply access the main menu and select “System Update,” then follow the instructions onscreen.

Once your system is up to date, screen mirroring will activate by default. Simply use standard Miracast/WiDi instructions to screen mirror with your Android, Windows 8 Phone or Windows 8.1 PC. If you want to ensure that the protocol is turned on, access the main menu and navigate to screen mirroring (beta).
