Hey all,

I was hacking at this problem (with a Roku Streaming Stick) and came up with a solution.

There are basically three parts

1) accept both user agents Roku/DVP-6 and Roku/DVP-7

2) force all streams to be transcoded to mpegts

3) use the mime type video/vnd.dlna.mpeg-tts instead of video/mpeg (or else the Roku won't show it)

And this worked for me! Attached is the conf file I was using. Good luck!

Hey guys, been using UMS for about 3 years now, pms before that, but Ive only ever used it on a ps3 and ps4.
My mom has a a tv with hdmi, and I wanted to buy her a roku 3, because I see that as the only supported roku, but I wasnt sure if its fully supported now. I see your instructions, but Im not sure how they worked out, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

To Penguin42.
I am using the Roku 3 configuration file you uploaded. Thank you very much.
However, the Roku FF and Rewind buttons do not work with the videos. I have tried with .MP4 and .MKV with no luck.
Is there any way to get these buttons to work with the Roku 3?
Thank you again.

This renderer is working okay for my Roku 3, and Roku premier+

Where does the renderers get the info for the image? I would like to change the image so when my premiere+ is detected it does not show a roku 3 but a 4 and/or premiere+ photo. Is that possible?

Hi all,
I picked up a Roku Streaming Stick + on Black Friday. I then upgraded my old PS3 Media Server to Universal Media Server, installed the Roku-Roku3-7.conf, and things are working OK with my SD content. But I also have some 720p HEVC content, and the transcoded video looks pretty bad. I'm curious if there is an updated config that correctly handles this media. Note that this Roku is supposed to be able to support 4K HEVC so I thought 720p HEVC would be a piece of cake.

In the logs I see both:

User-Agent: Roku/DVP-6.x
and
User-Agent: Roku/DVP-8.1 (508.01E04018A)
