Mac computer to TV via Roku

I want to stream videos on my Mac computer to my TV through the ROKU. Is that possible? Mirror the TV? If it's possible, I need directions on how to do it.

Re: Mac computer to TV via Roku

One of the best ways to play content from a mac or PC to a roku is to install the Plex server on the computer (https://www.plex.tv/media-server-downloads/) and use the plex client on the roku and other devices.   Some of the clients and content have a fee to use, but the basic server to play your own content and the roku client are free to use.

Alternatively you can copy the content to a USB and use the roku media player, or copy to a phone or tablet and use the roku app to play it to the TV.

Re: Mac computer to TV via Roku

Thank you. I'm not sure I explained very well what I need. I don't need to get content from my cpu to the TV via Roku. I want to watch tennis matches that will play at Wimbledon.com on my TV. So I guess I want to see my web browser on the TV. I went through the ROKU menu and did not find anywhere to add a device or mirror my cpu screen. Do you know if that is possible?

Re: Mac computer to TV via Roku

I think the only way to get the actual Mac screen on a Roku TV is an HDMI cable - or thunderbolt->HDMI.

However it looks like there a quite a lot of Wimbledon content on YouTube that you can want with the roku app: https://www.youtube.com/wimbledon.

And if you are paying for the live versions it should be on ESPN and show up on that app - and maybe through YouTube TV, Sling TV, and Amazon Video.   https://tennisworldlive.com/wimbledon-live-streaming/
