No customer service at all! Horrible App cannot get refund. Does not work! Can't even reach anyone in their customer service to assist. Do not buy this ... your better off giving five bucks to a homeless person or just dropping the five on the ground!

Worst experience EVER buying an app.

I am using the kindle fire HD/Roku-XD and Windows Media Player(WMP) as my Media server. After loading PlayTo on my Fire HD, I had trouble navigating the interface. It is not very intuitive. Then I had trouble setting up my "Home Media" server on Win 7 (not a PlayTo problem, but they never got back to me when I asked for setup help). Windows Media problem was solved once I rebooted the computer after configuring the WMP server. My problem was I didn't know what to look for in the windows display of network resources. I saw a WMP media server, but playto did not see it. After two days of trial and error, I discovered that I need to see a WMP display with a film strip icon. This is one of two WMP servers that Windows 7 creates when you turn on the stream option foe WMP. The other server shows up in the list of players along side the Roku player for play back. The problem was resolved after I rebooted my Win 7 pc. No reply from info@playto.tv when I ask for help.

So now, I can stream my WMP playlist to Roku, but only the first song plays in my playlist. Now I need to go figure out how to play all the songs in a playlist. I look frequently at the reviews here to see if anyone else had this problem.

Playto has great potential, but it is too complicated to setup for the new users.

Before the PlayTo app will work on a Roku, the appropriate channel first needs to be installed on the Roku.
To find this channel, google for "stream free tv", search their database for "playto", make sure you're logged into your Roku, then install this channel on your Roku from this website.
Then, using the app on the smartphone/tablet, you need to find and select the Roku as the preferred wireless connection.
Content can then be selected from the portable device and played via the Roku, although Roku needs to be selected each time as the target device.

Seems to play videos when it wants, but mostly just force closes. Thought it just had to do with the free version, so I took the leap and bought the full...still same problems. Don't waste your money!

Don't listen to these people. If you play around with it for like 2 minutes, you'll get it.
This REALLY helped my roku player with the youtube problem. It has four sections.
Online media, device, server, and home. Online media has a ton of links to a ton of websites like YouTube, blip.tv, Yahoo videos, the daily show, vevo, syfy, and so on. And what you do is you go into the video, where ever it maybe, and click the orange play button and it transfers it to the roku, Apple tv, etc. And it plays content in your device and you can connect a server to it also. And you don't even need the channel open on your device! You just press the orange button and bam, it's on your tv. So don't listen to them and take my word, it's not that complicated. I would give it a million stars if I could!!!

I bought the Samsung 2 7.0 Tablet a while back and was disappointed that Samsung failed to provide a means of streaming to my TV. This APP satisfies the feature. While it doesn't stream everything, it does stream lots of things.

Would not recommend no support, poor setup instruction, not worth the five dollars, should be free due to you spend more time waiting to see something on the TV.

I got this app which costs $4.99 and is a v1.81 to stream network shows from my KF-HDX to my TV thru ROKUxd. I did get it to work using the History Channel. But when I clicked "online media>TV>CBS" then selected any TV show, it returned a request to load FlashPlayer.

Well, KF-HDX doesn't have flash player, it supports their "experimental streaming viewer" which PlayTo doesn't recognize and therefore can't stream a show thru the Roku to watch.

Dayglow Inc needs to update their app to recognize kindle's experimental streaming viewer and then the app would be great!

Also, I saw on the PlayTo website that there are 2 downloads, Google's which is v1.93 and Amazon's which is v1.81, I'm wondering why the disparity in versions. Does Amazon have a outdated version?!?

UPDATE 1/21/14: Just an FYI, if you are looking to watch Network Channels such as ABC(missing) NBC(missing), CBS, CW, MTV, TNT -- all of these channels require a cable provider in order to view any episode. Therefore, these channels are basically useless for those of us who have "CUT THE CABLE Cord".

I know PlayTo can't do anything about these networks, but why have them listed. Those that have cable will be able to watch these channels on TV, tablets or online-so why would they want to stream to TV with your app? This is false advertising to buy your app.
