Re: Media player can not play photos and music together?

@Jazwjyyje-

I have wanted this capability for quite some time.  The Roku Media Player can display images or play audio, but not both at the same time.

I recently added a soundbar to my TV setup that can receive audio over bluetooth.  Now I can display images using Roku Media Player while streaming music to the soundbar from a phone or tablet.

@Jazwjyyje, if you're asking if it's possible, the answer is yes.  If you're asking if there's any media players that can do it then I don't know of any since the last one I worked that had that capability has been abandoned.

Shameless self-promotion - check out the Radio Paradise channel for an example of what's possible.
