WD Mycloud, Macbook Pro and Roksbox Channel on Roku Ultra

I am hoping someone can provide some hints, suggestions and guidance for me? Up until last week, I had been using an Amazon Firestick to play my movies that were loaded on my WD Mycloud. I was using the Archos Video Player. I switched to Roku Ultra because the Firestick was having issues playing 1080p files. With the Roku, currently I am using the Roku Media Player, which works fine but the UI is horrid. Roksbox looks like it will solve that problem, but I am having issues getting it set up.
Here is the equipment I am using:
Macbook Pro
WD MyCloud 4tb (plex server cannot be loaded on it)
Roku Ultra
I am not sure how to get the Roksbox to point to the WD Mycloud so it can see the movies?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Agreed. And it's using the outdated, barely supported UI still, which is ironic.

I had Plex server on my WD Mycloud device for years. It was spotty at best. Purchase a $35 Raspberry Pi 3 and you can load Plex on it. I've been using that for over a year now, it works great.
