Roku Ultra "native" file format

I am doing some research.  In trying to avoid transcoding I would like to know the native file fomat(s) that the Roku Ultra supports.  Can someone here help?

Re: Roku Ultra "native" file format

It's undocumented, but it will also play videos in the .TS container (.ts and .m2ts). But the codecs within the container still has to match what Basil quoted.
