Out of curiousity, I went and signed up for the Roku Developer SDK to see what would be involved... and in the forum, the first thing I see is your post and the reply about using the MP4 feeds...

 

It would be interesting to know what the optimal bitrate/resolution would be for the Roku, as our MP4 files are intended for portable devices and are probably much lower resolution than the device supports. If you can find specs, post them here...

After a bit more digging around, I think the advice you received (that Roku doesn't support WMV so you should use the MP4 files) is not necessarily accurate. I've seen some posts say 'Roku supports WMV playback, but not live streamed WMV' and as far as I know, netflix is sending WMV content to the Roku...

 

 

[update] Yep, it definitely supports WMV ... you should download the SDK and give it a whirl making a 'channel' that displays and lets you pick from our WMV High feed on the home page...  http://channel9.msdn.com/Feeds/RSS/WMVHigh/Default.aspx

 

I'm a bit busy myself, and I don't have a Roku Sad
