Welcome to Roksbox

Roksbox is a channel on the Roku Digital Video Player that gives you the ability to play your own videos and movies, listen to your own music, and show your own photographs on your television screen. Roksbox will work with Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.  Your media can reside on a Plug and Play (UPnP/DLNA) device, on cloud services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, and HipServ, on your computer's hard drive, on an external drive, on a network attached storage (NAS) device located on your home or local area network, or on a USB attached device (on compatible Roku models). Roksbox can be set up very easily using your directory structure, or you can use advanced features such as Movie Sheets and XML files to further enhance the way your media appears on your screen.
