All issues can be easily resolved at www Roku com link, which is official site of the company.

Issue 1: Roku is not playing all file formats

This has come out to be one of the main issues in Roku. The inability of the device to play all file formats have forced people to change the original file format to the one, which is compatible with Roku. The formats that are played in Roku are MOV, MP4, MKV and WMV. Those who want to play 3GP files, it is not possible. There are many 3rd party sources, which they can use to play all unsupported files in a flawless manner. For more info, check out Roku link or call Roku support.

Issue 2: Roku unable to stream content from PC to Roku

In order to stream the content in a seamless manner, the internet speed needs to be high and continuous. To stream top-class videos, the speed should be at least 3MBPS. Moreover, there are many other things, which people need to keep in mind, these are;
