Wow that sounds really neat. I'm thinking of buying one just because newgrounds is on it.

I don't even know what that is, but if it's good for Newgrounds, I'm for it!

What the hell is a Roku? Can it go Super Saiyan?

Also, impatiently waiting for the redesign.

I've got two Halloween Flashes coming for the Halloween Spooktacular this year! One's called "Awesome! Eversion" (Based on the game here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBKvtQtKf 0s) and the very first Episode of "Candle Cove" (Based on the scary story here: http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Candle _Cove). Wish me luck guys! :D

Not myself, I just got one. But there are probably a handful I could think of who have the worst equipment.

Yup, you can recommend people!

Mike has been developing the "best ever" SWF to video converter, so we can turn just about any SWF into a 1080p video that runs full-frame-rate, with smooth rasters and filter effects. We'll be making it available later when it's more complete.

I believe it's a Street Fighter character... or a Pokemon. Not sure.

NG HD TV? SWF to video converter? This might be my favorite news post this year. Too bad I don't have a Roku, nor have I even heard of it before. The only Roku I know is the Avatar Roku from Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Oh my god, that is an amazing idea. Unfortunately, I don't believe that's even possible, as the broadcast is through Ustream, and I have no idea if a Roku can do live stuff. I don't own one so I wouldn't know, though.

I was just telling my brother there should be a Newgrounds TV channel. Many Newgrounds animations can easily beat Adult Swim content in quality.


I got Flash CS4 in case you need something converted to CS3.

Whoever posted that one thread about there being a Newgrounds TV channel must've looked how many years into the future?

Won't be doing live broadcasts through it but might have some video stuff up there eventually, like interviews and stuff from events.

I'd love it if my Roku actually worked, but it seems pretty fond of freezing and long buffer times despite my high speed connection.

Bleh, the PC is in the same room anyways.

I called this years ago, suggesting this idea. :) just try really hard to not make it like the top submission on the actual site. Unless they are made by certain people.

Hey man there's a trick with the Roku that I learned after much frustration. When it freezes on you, you've got to go to a different input on your TV, then you click the "home" button like 2-3 times till the little white light starts flickering when you do, and then go back to Roku and it'll be unfrozen. I don't know why it works like that, but it does.
