Is it possible to "hire" someone to program/create a channel/app for me? As I don't have the programming skills needed to do this myself directly?
What I actually want to create is a channel that is very similar to the "Roku Media Player" app, yet will allow the user to input a URL/IP Address of their home DLNA NAS device so that they can view their own videos/music/photos that reside on their own personal NAS cloud that doesn't reside on the local network.
Thus allowing someone who has multiple Roku units at multiple locations to access a single DLNA NAS server that is located on the internet and not on the local network.
I hope I made sense in what I am trying to achieve.
I didn't think DLNA would work across the Internet. However, iOS apps as well as some android apps do allow for streaming from quite a number of different DLNA server to ones smartphone and or tablet currently.
Using one of several different apps, I can stream video, music, or pics to my iPhone and or iPad with little difficulty. Surely there has to be a way that an app for the Roku could do the same.
As I have seen apps for the RoKu that would stream several cloud services, such as Dropbox. However, the cost of having a cloud service with 36tb is only affordable by bill gates, and maybe the rockefellers! Lol I do have "cloud" capability using my laptop or iOS device with the NAS units.
I was hoping playon would work, as the play on app for iOS devices work across the Internet and not just from ur home network.
I will give Chaneru a shot though. Will it tell me what ports I need to open on my router?
