Question MarkI don't have a DVD player but I want to play DVD movie on my HD TV. Is there an app that can let me stream DVDs from my computer to Roku for later playback on TV?

Roku is another popular streaming player, besides Apple TV and Chromecast. Compared with Apple TV and Chromecast, Roku has many advantages. It supports 1800+ streaming channels including YouTube, Netflix, HBO GO, Hulu plus, PBS, Pandora, etc. and 200,000+ movies and TV episodes. And it is accessible to search around top channels to find your specified content and check if there's free content available. And the Roku 3 even comes with remote with headphone jack for private listening.

Despite of various merits, Roku doesn't know how to play DVD-like sources. Video formats supported by Roku only cover MKV (H.264), MP4 (H.264), MOV (H.264), WMV (VC-1, firmware 3.1 only). So, if you want to play DVD movies like Transformers 4 on HD TV via Roku, it is sensible to learn how to stream DVD to Roku with a professional and fast DVD ripper in the following part.
