Want to stream videos from your Android phone to a Roku? All you need is the latest nightly build of the Firefox web browser for Android.
Mozilla is now testing a Roku casting feature in the pre-release version of its mobile web browser.
When you encounter a website with an embedded HTML5 video encoded in H.264, Firefox should detect the video and detect the Roku on your WiFi network and bring up a media control bar with play and cast buttons.
Hit the cast button (which looks just like the button you’d use to send video to a Chromecast) and the video should start playing on the Roku. You can then pause, play, or close the video from your phone. The video bar will be visible as long as you’re using the Firefox browser, even if you open a new website or switch browser tabs.
Eventually Mozilla may add support for streaming videos to Chromecast as well support for additional video formats. For now this experimental feature only supports Roku and H.264 videos.
In the meantime if you’ve got a Chromecast, you can always just use Google’s Chrome web browser to stream videos embedded in websites to your TV.
