First, a quick note: we know that there is still a lot of legal ambiguity around ripping content that you have legally purchased. At Audioholics, we believe that you should be able to watch purchased media on your system regardless of whether it’s coming from a standalone Blu-ray player or a media center frontend. Actually, it’s not as difficult as you imagine.

Roku 3 can’t stream Video_TS folders on PC hard drive? Solved

Diana Joan

I have a few children animation DVDs that I’ve ripped to my PC hard drive, the movies are in video_ts folders. The original DVDs were scratched beyond repair and I’ve thrown them away. I recently found out that my Roku 3 cannot stream from video_ts folders, so I used Freemake to convert them to MP4. All the MP4s that I made played great using Roku 3 (I connected a portable hard drive to the Roku 3). However, there was one movie that has no audio, only video. I’ve reconverted it 2 more times, no go. I then converted it to MKV, still no audio. What’s causing the problem?
