    Default Roku or Fire TV Box

    Hi,

    We have Mezzmo working fine with UHD TVs via DLNA, but for older sets in the house that don't support H.265 content, we were looking at either a Roku4, or Amazon Fire Box.

    What is the recommendation here, which provides the best, most reliable integration with Mezzmo? Are there any know issues, or limitations with either that might sway the decision?

    The supported formats of the Roku 4 are limited to mkv and mp4 whereas the Amazon Fire Box runs android and the Mezzmo android app can be used which plays almost every format so I would recommend the Amazon Fire Box over the Roku.

    Mezzmo Android: Install it on your tablet, smartphone, Android TV or Amazon Fire to browse and stream files from your Mezzmo library to all your devices. Full details at http://www.conceiva.com/products/mez...mo_android.asp
    Mezzmo for Kodi Add-on: Install it into Kodi to stream files from your Mezzmo library directly in Kodi. Full details at http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...odi_user_guide
    Mezzmo for Roku App: Install it onto your Roku to stream files from your Mezzmo library. Full details at http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...oku_user_guide

    My preference, even with the limited format support, is the Roku, because Amazon has a bad habit of deleting things off of the devices that they sell whenever they feel like it. Alot of people have been screwed out of things like eBooks and apps that they have purchased by Amazon.
