Live streaming from webpage?

Jump to solution

What is the best (maybe only) way to live stream a show from an internet web site or Facebook page directly to my 58" 4K Roku TV instead of watching it on my Android phone? Thanks!

Right now the easiest way is to cast it from one device to the other.

I think that requires an app on you smart phone.

Sorry, I use a flip phone, but I have done it from a windows 10 box. Thats built into win10 and I think you have to install a channel too.

Some DLNA servers offer plugins to permit access to media from web sites. Serviio has a number of them, such as YouTube for example. However, be aware that web sites often make changes that alters or simply breaks the ability completely. Most sites don't want you to access their media from anything other than their site, mostly due to the advertisements they are paid to offer. As mentioned, casting from some other device, such as a computer or smart phone/tablet might be the simplest way to make it work.
