Hello! I received the #MadeMoreMST3K Backer Collection as did everyone else who backed the kickstarter. When I got the codes for VHX/Vimeo, I decided to only download the episodes which I haven’t seen. For those who are wondering, those very episodes are:
- The Brain That Wouldn’t Die
- The Dead Talk Back
- Village Of The Giants
- Boggy Creek II: And The Legend Continues…
Of course, Naturally, I would want to play them on my TV via Roku rather than on my computer. The thing is, I have a main computer which is a Mac and I also have a Gaming PC, but I didn’t want to transfer the large episodes over to the Gaming PC. What I did was I looked at Roku’s web site and they said I needed a DLNA media server to narrow-cast to my Roku, and I chose Plex. So I downloaded Plex and waited for all my music to sync (which was about two or three hours, if not more), and then I was trying to make MST3K sync, but it wasn’t happening. I then go to Plex’s support site and find out how to organize the files. Turns out, they’re organized like this:
Mystery Science Theater 3000/Season04/24 _Manos_ The Hands of Fate.mp4
Once I organized every single episode like that, I was able to watch on my Roku via Plex, and as long as my computer was on and my main browser was up, I started watching!
Kudos to Roku and Plex for making an easy (enough) streaming option, and kudos to whomever decided to make the MST3K episodes DRM-free (whether it was Joel or someone else, whomever that person is absolutely deserves the praise!)!
