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 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). Although Roksbox requires some initial setup work, once you get your network and media files properly configured, you will be able to enjoy all of your media files on the convenience of the Roku player.
Roksbox comes in two versions - Roksbox original, and Roksbox Cloud. Roksbox Cloud has all the features of Roksbox original, with a different user interface, and the ability to stream from various cloud services. For new installs, Roksbox Cloud is recommended.
