Roku USB MoviesHow to Watch USB Movies on RokuThe Roku 2 XS allows you to watch your own movies right from a USB stick. Here’s how you can get it working:

  1. Make sure you have a movie in an appropriate format, mainly H.264 or WMV/ASF
  2. Make sure the USB stick is formatted properly, FAT16, FAT32, HFS+, or NTFS file systems are noted to work.
  3. Install the USB Device “Channel” through the channel store – it is free.
  4. Visit the USB Channel on your Roku XS device
  5. If there is more than one USB device showing up check them both. Voila!

Now you can watch movies directly from a USB jump drive / thumb drive on your Roku. Remember that the Micro SD card slot is only used as storage and you can’t watch movies from it.
