Streaming a repeating video to Roku

I'm looking for advice on how to stream a movie stored on local media to a Roku device on a loop.  This would be something like a screen in a business continually showing promotional materials with both video and audio.  I know I can use VLC to create a variety of streams (such as HTTP and RTSP) that work well with other VLC clients on the network:

Is there an existing Roku channel that can display a stream that VLC is able to create?  To go the extra mile is there something that can connect to multiple streams and either show them in split-screen or allow a user to cycle through the connected streams?

Thank you in advance for your time and help.
