How do i stream Fritz!Box 7490 USB Drive Files on Roku 4K Express

I would normally use VLC but that isn't supported. So i tried Plex. But Plex only finds/lists the Fritz!MediaServer, where the Hard Drive is not listed, clickable or accessible. On FireTV it would go so smoothly and without any issues. How do i get that on a Roku 4K Express?

You can try the Roku Media Player, but something tells me that if Plex doesn't see the hard drive, RMP won't either.  Keep in mind that Roku devices support a limited number of video formats - no AVI, WMV, or many others.

Hi renojim, thank you very much. I have tried the Roku Media Player upon my Google Research, but that doesn't work either. It's only the Roku. From anywhere else, Mobile (Android), Windows, etc. i have access immediately. But on the Roku Express i can't access the NAS, nor enter the Login Info for the Fritz Box. I only get access to the Media Server, from which the NAS is inaccessible.

Do they have a user forum or any kind of support?  I don't know if you'll find anyone here with any experience with that setup.
