convert video to MP4 for Roku player

Roku is the best-known brand of streaming-media boxes and the Roku player is the market leader in streaming entertainment devices for the TV, which is renowned for the simplicity, variety of entertainment choices, and exceptional value.

Roku arranges different services as channels, and lets you access Netflix, Hulu Plus, and more specific video channels. Roku could choose what you want to watch instantly. Whether you’re exploring over 700 channels of movies and shows, delving into what really interests you, or just stumbling across something new, Roku makes it happen easily. Although they don't deliver as many networked-media features as the Apple TV (check how to watch iTunes movies on Roku) and they don't offer a Web browser or a lot of apps like Google TV products, they're simple to set up and let you jump right into watching online video services without much effort.

Since the Roku player will only play certain media file formats, your multiple media files need to be converted to Roku player compatible formats. And Any Video Converter Ultimate will be your best choice!
