Hmmmm, I'm starting to get a little concerned now. I have just come over to emby from Plex yesterday. I have a Roku 2XS. The Plex Roku app was recently updated and made the Roku unusable.(majority of media not displaying, causing repeated buffering and crashing).

Is the same thing in store for me here? I simply can't afford any more hardware for the foreseable future. I thought emby was my saviour. Now who knows?

 

Never had any such issues.

Is there a plan to have this app pushed today? Next blackout starts tomorrow and I'd like to have my family be able to watch over the break. They currently cannot since I'm waiting for the LDAP auth fix.

Thanks Luke,set my mind at rest.

 

I used the Roku app for the first time last night. It was as smooth as a cashmere codpiece. :)

In this version if i go to recordings it has stretched all the posters to make them into thumbnails shouldn’t be using thumbnail image so it looks nicer.

Edit Have enabled image enhancers now it is showing portrait images but there is so much blank space between posters.

How does one download the latest emby app without going through ROKU? I have to side load the app as my country does not support ROKU (region locked)

Unfortunately we don't have side-loadable versions at this time. Sorry.

What is your country?

 

Does the Emby Beta not allow you to download/install it either?

I am in Australia.  Roku did a deal with Telstra a local broadband/phone/pay tv provider. can not make a working account with roku.  

 

plex has native support on the telstra branded roku. seems pretty unfair to me.

You're not able to install our app from the store?

I spoke to @ebr about getting on that same store. I told him cable providers are using Roku as a rebranded cable box to give their customers and these are tied to different store fronts. How hard this is to do or how much compensation ($$ vs $$$$) they require is anyone's guess. Anyone care to guess?

Not something you could solve with a VPN?

Yeah it is a different store, that seems not to be linked to official roku store. Id love to see the new app on this store.

I too would love this as I have 2 x Telstra TV rokus.  I have side loaded a much earlier version of emby for now, but it really shows how far emby has come when compared to the roku store one.

To make a roku account you need at least one roku device, the telstra tv roku won't register.  no VPN can help.

 

So what is the problem? why is there no side load version of the emby app for roku? 

 

did roku make you boys sign a contract so that you can only release it through the roku store?

 

what gives?

Thank you Luke,

 

All of the roku devices in Australia are locked to the Telstra store,  if you can get in there it is a massive user base.  Some how plex made it on a couple of years ago now.  

 

please keep us updated with your progress, good or bad

 

Cheers
