Roku doesn't support Youtube... that was a deal breaker for me.

Roku also didn't use to support local media browsing. I know it does now - is it any good at it? (at least for video content this was one of Boxee's strengths)

Also - how is Roku in terms of a 3rd-party app ecosystem? That is another essential in my books.


It does, but not well. You'll have to resort to Plex.

Roku has a better app ecosystem than Google TV, more video channels in particular.


You can use Plex to get YouTube on Roku.
