Requirements To Use The Installer
In order to access the My Video Buzz installer you must have a windows laptop or desktop computer on the same network as your Roku device. The computer is essentially the launch pad for the program and the side loading action. This action can not be performed on a windows tablet, a smart phone, Ipad or an Apple computer.

After the zipped file has finished downloading click on the file and it will open where you should see an icon called Myvideobuzzinstaller.exe. Click the icon labeled “Extract” and chose a folder for the program to be sent to, I recommend a desktop folder so that it is easy to find.

The program will then automatically scan for Roku devices on your wireless network. Once it finds a Roku or multiple Rokus depending on your setup click on the dropdown menu that says “Please select a device and click next” choose the Roku you wish to install myvideobuzz on.
