I have a very noob question I was hoping you could help with. I would like to be able to create a private, free roku channel that streams videos that I (or my friends) create. I have absolutely no programming experience. Having said that, I downloaded the sdk 3.0 and Eclipse. After poking around for a few minutes I started to wonder if I have to have a video url to enter in the code or is there a way for me to stream vids straight from my computer? What's the easiest way to get videos from my hard drive to a roku channel? Any help would be much appreciated!
are you looking to use this for yourself personally or put it out there for anyone to use/view these videos? If you just want to locally stream to your TV there are channels that can allow you to do that already. My Media, Chaneru, Plex, etc. are just a few examples. All solutions to stream from your own computer require setting up a media server on your pc. If you are looking to create a channel of your videos for public consumption, those videos have to be hosted on the 'net somewhere.
