How to Watch USB Movies on Roku

The Roku 2 XS allows you to watch your own movies right from a USB stick. Here’s how you can get it working: Make sure you have a movie in an appropriate format, mainly H.264 or WMV/ASF Make sure the USB stick is formatted properly, FAT16, FAT32, HFS+, or NTFS file systems are noted to work. Install the USB Device “Channel” through the channel store – it is free. Visit the USB Channel on your Roku XS device 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.
