Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP
Hi, I saved a piece of this stream. This stream is encoded in WMA9 codec which is supported by roku. The container is ASF which is also supported by roku. Unfortunately is appears that Audio only streams in this format are not supported. Roku can recognize the WMA extension but not the ASF extension and can recognize the metadata in the file but would not play the audio. If roku would play it I'd say there is a good chance that streaming would work, but now I feel that chances it would work are slim. That is a nice station and if you really want to play it on roku you can do one of two thing: - contact roku and wait for the software update. it should be easy to support for them but they may not want to do it for some reason. - setup vlc to transcode this in to mp3 and forward it to your roku. You can also transcode to aac but MyMedia does not support aac streams. I just tried it and it works like a charm. You need to setup VLC to stream the url while transcoding to MP3 and setup roku to connect to your PC. On my Phenom 9750 vlc uses 5% CPU to transcode in real time.
