Add Channel - CL9D5D
Channel Description: RokuCast is a Chrome extension that will allow you to cast HTML5 content from your Chrome web browser to a Roku device on the same home network. This experimental version on GitHub uses Roku's native remote video player, so you don't have to install a companion channel on the Roku. If you do choose to install the companion channel, you can view a history of recently cast videos.
RokuCast requires that you sideload it on your Chrome browser. Download the zip file found under the Installation instructions on the RokuCast GitHub page, then unzip it to your computer's desktop. In Chrome, go to Settings >> Extensions, then enable "developer mode" by clicking on the upper-right checkbox. Click "Load Unpacked Extension" and browse to the folder called RokuCast in the unzipped archive.
After installing the RokuCast extension, you should see the extension in the corner of your browser. Select the extension, click on the settings cog, and enter the IP address for your Roku device. You can find your Roku's IP address by selecting Settings from your Roku's home screen, and then selecting Network.
To use RokuCast, use Chrome to visit a site with HTML5 content this site (you can test it at camendesign.com/code/video_for_everybody/test.html), and click on the cast button in the omnibar. A list of all castable content should be shown, along with options to download or cast. Clicking the cast button should result in the video automatically playing on your Roku.
More information on installing and using RokuCast can be found on the RokuCast GitHub page listed below.

It’s safe to say that Google Chrome has revolutionized browsing. Besides being faster than other browsers, it’s also simple to use and works with almost all devices that can accommodate a web browser. But did you know that you can project Chrome to a Roku device to improve your browsing experience?
In this article, we’re going to delve into the world of screen mirroring and show you how you can enjoy Chrome on Roku.
What Is Mirroring?
Screen mirroring, or simply mirroring, allows you to wirelessly replicate the screen of your device onto your TV screen. It allows you to see whatever is on your device’s screen on your TV instead. It works well with Android devices, Apple devices, as well as Windows PCs.
You can use screen mirroring to broadcast web pages, music, videos, and almost every other type of media file.
Why Is Screen Mirroring So Popular?
Screen mirroring has many advantages:
- It can help to facilitate collaboration between you and your colleagues at work by providing an avenue where you can share your presentations in a cost-friendly manner.
- Unlike the traditional projector, screen monitoring is wireless. This helps to reduce clutter and keep your meeting room neat.
- As a wireless tool, you’ll have total control over what you share. You don’t need to plug out cables or even switch off your primary display device.
- It’s easy to set up. You don’t need to be an IT expert.
- Multiple screens can be shared simultaneously. This way, you and your team can save time.
Where Is Screen Mirroring Most Effective?
At home: Thanks to mirroring, you can watch Netflix, browse, and listen to your favorite music on your TV. Mirroring saves you the trouble of connecting AV cables and HDMI/VGA adapters.
In the classroom: Teachers no longer have to be tethered to the front desk when making a presentation. They don’t need to find someone to set up projector equipment in advance. With screen mirroring technology, they can even personalize what each attendee sees on their individual screen.
In the Office: Whether you’re trying to give a presentation, hosting a training session, or giving your colleagues a little break through entertainment, mirroring is an excellent solution as long as WiFi is present.
Now, we’ll look at how you can mirror Chrome to a Roku device.
How to Mirror Chrome to Roku
Screen mirroring is available on Roku devices running Roku OS 7.7 or later. So it’s a good idea to ensure that your Roku device is up-to-date before mirroring.
To verify that your Roku device is up-to-date click the Home button on your Roku remote. Next, scroll down the left-hand side to ‘Settings.’ A new window will pop-out to the right, scroll down, and click on ‘System.’ Then, click ‘About.’
If your Roku is running Roku OS 7.7 or later read on. But, if it isn’t, you’ll need to update it. Simply navigate to the ‘Settings’ then click on ‘System.’ Scroll down and click on ‘System Update.’ Your Roku will go through the process of updating and then you can move onto the next steps.
Note: Before we go on, it’s important to note that mirroring will only work if your Roku device is connected to the same network as your device. To check the network your Roku is connected to, simply go to the settings menu and open the network section.
Unfortunately, not all devices are capable of mirroring Chrome to your Roku device. For example, iOS devices do not give us the option to Cast (Google’s term and an actual option in Chrome’s settings) to a Roku device.
You also won’t have the option to Cast or Mirror from certain Android devices (such as the Google Pixel phones). Although you can mirror specific apps (like Netflix) you won’t see the option in Chrome.
If you’re trying to share photos, videos, or presentations, it may be a good idea to use a third-party app like AllCast to mirror your content to a Roku device rather than Chrome.
Preparing Your Roku for Mirroring
Sometimes it’s best to prepare your device before running into an issue and troubleshooting later. The first thing you’ll want to do is verify that your Roku is ready to accept the signal from your devices.
To tweak the settings on your Roku device, do this:
- Open the Settings section on your Roku TV.
- Select “System.”
- Select “Screen Mirroring.”
- Select the option for ‘Prompt’ or ‘Allow.’
Now, we can move onto mirroring Chrome on a Roku device.
How to Mirror Chrome from Android to Roku
Next, it’s time to set up mirroring on your Android device. Here’s how to do so:
- Start out by downloading a third-party screen mirroring to Roku app from the Google Play store. – We liked the Screen Mirroring for Roku smart view app because it seems to work well (minus some ads) and it has great reviews.
- Tap on the screen and watch your ad (sorry, but it does have ads).
- In the upper right-hand corner tap on the three vertical dots then tap ‘Enable wireless display.’
- Select your device from the list that appears. – As long as your Android device and your Roku are connected to the same WiFi network it will appear.
At this point, your device’s screen should appear on your Roku. To begin mirroring, simply tap on it. Once connected, whatever is displayed on your Android device will also be displayed on your TV. You can then cast Chrome to Roku, or any other application on your Android device.
It’s also important to note that Screen monitoring only works if your device is running Android 4.2 or a higher version. Earlier versions may not be supported.
How to Mirror Chrome from Windows to Roku
Roku’s screen sharing feature also works well with Windows 10 devices. You’ll need to start the mirroring process from your desktop rather than Chrome. Here’s how you can set it up:
- Click on the notifications icon in the lower left-hand corner of your computer screen.
- Click on “Connect.”
- Your Roku device should appear on the resulting dropdown menu. To connect, simply click on it.
Your screen will automatically begin mirroring so open Chrome and continue to your intended tasks.
How to Mirror Chrome from iPhone to Roku
Similar to the method we used above for an Android device, we’ll need to use a third-party app to mirror Chrome to Roku. We used the Mirror for Roku app on the App Store but you could use any app you find. Here’s what you need to do:
- Download and install a suitable screen mirroring app on the App Store.
- Launch the mirroring app and click ‘Enable’ when prompted.
- The app will display a list of the devices available for connecting. If screen mirroring is already enabled on your Roku, then the name of your Roku device should appear in the list of available devices.
- To connect, tap on the Roku device. This will mirror your iPhone’s screen on your TV.
Do All Roku Devices Support Screen Mirroring?
Although most Roku streaming players and Roku TVs support screen mirroring, a few of them don’t:
Roku Express: Model 3900 supports mirroring, but model 3700 doesn’t.
Roku Express+: model 3910 supports mirroring, but model 3710 doesn’t.
How Can You Find Out the Model of Your Roku Device?
• Open “Settings.”
• Go to the “System” section.
• Open “About.”
Can I cast directly from Chrome to a Roku?
Unfortunately, in most cases, no. Even on the desktop version of Chrome you’ll need a third-party extension to mirror to Roku.
Google’s Casting technology seems to be incompatible with Roku’s technology, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. If you select the three-dot icon in the upper right-hand corner and select ‘Cast’ a list of available options will appear. You can try to click on your device in the list and select one of the options from ‘Sources.’ If successful your screen will automatically appear on your Roku.
Can I mirror in Guest Mode?
Yes! Roku offers a Guest Mode option that allows other users to access the Roku OS. Simply set the device in Guest Mode and connect as shown above.
Upgrade Your Chrome Experience
There’s been a lot of effort to develop mobile devices with extra-large screens, but a screen that’s too big can be problematic because it will make it difficult to carry your device comfortably. However, that’s where screen mirroring comes in. It can be the perfect way to enjoy articles, videos, and audio files on Chrome. Armed with the information contained in this article, nothing will now stop you from jumping right in and broadcasting Chrome on your TV.

Cast videos from Chrome to Roku

Comprised of a modified vGet extension
Credits to original authors and mozilla foundation for their hard work, without which this mod could not be possible
This branch holds the experimental version which makes use of Roku's native remote video player (the same one invoked when you play videos through the official roku mobile app) to avoid having to install a separate companion channel on the Roku.
Even though it is experimental, it has been tested by several people and should work fine. This branch is the one most people should use.
In some very specific cases, you may need to use the version with the companion channel that can be found in the master branch (the production branch is not being updated and should not really used since it lacks some new features (such as slightly better compatibility for videos) . For instance, if you need to spoof user-agent of the Roku or want to access play history, the companion channel lets you do that.
The master branch holds a version similar to the production branch except it may be more bleeding-edge and uses a sideloaded version of the companion channel instead of having the companion installed as a private channel. Useful if you use a sky now tv or similar box that only allows sideloaded custom channels.
First download the zip file of the repo and unzip it on to the desktop:
In Chrome navigate to preferences -> extensions and enable "developer mode" by clicking on the upper-right checkbox.
Then click "Load Unpacked Extension" and browse to the folder called RokuCast in the unzipped archive.
Once the Chrome extension has been installed, you should see the extension appear in the corner.
Before you use the extension, you will have to enter the IP Address for your roku into it.
Inside the extension, click on the settings cog in the lower right hand corner and enter the IP address for your roku in the text box. Your Roku's IP address can be found in the network section of Roku's preferences.
Once installed, navigate to any site containing html5 content this site for example, and click on the cast button in the omnibar. You should see a list of all castable content (choose the .mp4 — see next section), and an option to either download or cast it. Click on the cast button, and the video should automatically start playing on your roku.
Thanks to ph0rn there's also a context menu item so you can right click on video links and cast from there too.
Supported Formats / Limitations
The extension supports the subset of formats the roku can play (mp4 and m3u8/HLS live stream mainly).
It will work on the majority of sites using an html5 video player (and in a few specific cases also works on flash sites.. worth trying out). Note that some websites will only offer the content in an html5 format to mobile devices, so you could try spoofing user-agent (install a chrome extension to do so).
If you get a couldn't cast message, things worth trying out:
- Spoof user agent to mobile (see previous paragraph). Some websites have switched to blob method of playback which doesn't embed the video URL directly in the DOM, instead having it point to a localstorage object. Switching to mobile seems to alleviate this.
- Note that YouTube (and maybe vimeo/dailymotion) is one of the sites that does that, so if you want to cast YouTube videos using this, spoof your user-agent. Of course YouTube has its own app for Roku with cast support, so you could just use that.
If that doesn't help, open an issue and I'll look into it.
- Automatic roku IP discovery using SSDP
- Closed caption casting
- Consider using chrome's dev tool resource/network introspection to identify URLs in flash players
Enabling chrome developer mode gives me that popup every time on startup.. how can I remove it?
Unfortunately dev mode is now required in chrome to sideload 3rd party extensions. However, I believe if after sideloading you then package the extension on your computer (thus signing it locally), Chrome will accept it.
Folks on OSX don't have to worry as much since Chrome is kept active even if no window is open.
Firefox has its own casting thing that this was modelled off of. I don't know how well it works or whether it can extract videos embedded in stuff like jwplayer.
