Sharing a video to your parents’ Roku

The little Roku box is great, but how do you get it to show your own videos on your TV? Sunimi was born for this. A web service where you can set up a feed, a server running on your computer, Roku linked, and off you are streaming on your local network. Yep, only formats supported by Roku :-( . Now sharing with your parents shouldn’t be too hard. Let’s see … Their Roku links to the same service, gets feed info, and connects to your computer. Oops! Your computer is on your local network and protected by a firewall. Hacker to the rescue. Use your external IP, forward a port to your computer, and voila! Until you restart your modem/router and your IP changes. Or turn your computer off. There has got to be a better way!

What if you could upload your video to Sunimi? Share it only with family and select friends? Their Roku can see what you share with them and maybe even what others share with them. Even when your computer is off or busy with other things. What if you could notify them, sort of send them the shared video via … MediaMail? Hey, and how about throwing in automatic video format conversion, and the ability to download the video again, if say your hard disk crashed?

Well, it’s real with Sunimi as of today! Give it a spin for free, then sign up for the whole enchilada by going PRO!!
