Note: For the app to work, you must install the Juice channel on your Roku by going here: https://owner.roku.com/add/juice. Also note that if you have a router with two channels (regular and guest), your Roku and your Android device must be connected to the same channel.

Juice for Roku lets you to stream media directly from your Android device to your Roku player: No need for a separate server!

Does NOT support YouTube and flash based videos, and does not support Google Music. Also note that videos in any format other than MP4 are unlikely to play. See here: http://support.roku.com/entries/423946-what-media-file-types-does-the-roku-usb-media-player-channel-support. ALSO - the Roku doesn't support videos taken in portrait mode.

- Send individual songs or whole albums to the Roku. Songs can be shuffled.

- Use the “Share” menu from the gallery, browser and other supported apps to send media to the Roku without having to launch the Juice app
- NEW - SHOWBOX SUPPORT. Send downloaded ShowBox videos to your Roku by going to the Videos tab and selecting the "show_box" folder. Does not work with streamed Showbox videos.
- No need for a home media server
- No need for cables
- No need to upload your files to a web server
- Fully functional remote control included with the same functionality as the Roku Remote app (sold separately)

One of the best things about this app is it's ability to work with other apps. For example, long press a link to a photo, song or video in the browser and share it to the Juice app to start it playing on the Roku. Or long press an episode in your Podcast app and share it to Juice to hear it through your Roku connected system. With the share feature, you can stream almost anything on the internet to the Roku, in addition to streaming what is already on your Android device.

Requirements:
- You must add the Juice channel to your Roku (https://owner.roku.com/add/juice)
- Android device and Roku player must be on the same network
- Plugging your Android device into your computer may prevent the app from accessing the SD card. In general, don't have plug your Android device into the computer when using the app. Charging is OK.
- Not all video formats are supported by the Roku. See the supported formats here: http://support.roku.com/entries/423946-what-media-file-types-does-the-roku-usb-media-player-channel-support
- Some MP4s created on Android devices may not work since Roku doesn't support all codecs. It depends on the Android device. Also, the Roku doesn't support videos taken in portrait mode.

Troubleshooting:
- If you notice lag or unresponsiveness, power off your android device and/or the Roku and try again. This resolves nearly all connectivity issues. You should only have to do this infrequently.

    Really like the app its worth 3 bucks ..paid for it for the share option... didn't know the share option wasn't going to work every time ..plz upgrade the share option so it works better..I would pay 10 for the app if the share worked every time.

    I have used this app for years and years now, my experience is mostly great. I've had problems but the developer has reached out to try and correct the problem. As some one who purchased this app probably 3 years ago I know that the money I gave them is long gone and spent but this or these developers are fully vested in making the app work for every one, a near impossible task on the Android

    Now every time i try to watch a movie it says shared video then closes down. Have tried reinstalling the app to no avail. Will look for an alternative

    For example, no access to micro sd card. Which for me makes this virtually useless.

    Worked great until I switched to an LG Volt. Now it can barely establish a connection.
