Dailymotion is one of the most popular video-sharing platforms around the globe. Hundreds of thousands of videos are being uploaded and watched every single day on Dailymotion and the number is growing with each day. That is why, you might want to have Dailymotion on Roku as well if you are a Roku user and want to enjoy your daily dose of videos, songs, and other multimedia at Roku. The best thing about Dailymotion is that it allows you to watch the videos for free without needing any subscriptions at all.
Dailymotion On Roku
While Roku allows you to download plenty of applications from the Roku store, there are tons of desirable applications that are not available on the Roku store. One of such applications is Dailymotion. There is no way for you that you can download the Dailymotion application on your Roku device through the store. However, if you would still want to run Dailymotion on your Roku TV or streaming device, there are a few things that you can do to make it work.
1) Screen Mirroring
Roku does not support any third-party applications access optimally, but you can mirror your screen from your mobile, tablet, or laptop on Roku easily. This allows you a perfect way to enjoy Android, Windows, or iOS at a bigger screen and that too wirelessly. Roku screen mirroring is pretty fast and efficient as well, so you don’t have to worry about the lags or any sort of stuff like that.
All you need to do is enable Dailymotion on your phone, tablet, or laptop that you might want to use, and mirror your screen on Roku to have it played there. It will mirror whatever video you play on your device on the Roku and you can enjoy a better experience.
2) Android Emulator
While it is not recommended by Roku to use any emulators on the device to ensure stability, performance, and better optimization, there are some android emulators available on the internet that you can use to have android applications installed on your Roku. You can give it a try if you are desperate enough to watch Dailymotion on your Roku, but the only viable and recommended option is to use the screen mirroring option to be safe and not cause any bigger issue to occur with your Roku.
3) Third-Party applications
Roku does not support access to any third-party applications at all. They are not recommended or endorsed in anyways. But the internet is a wide place and tech geeks don’t like being restricted. There are multiple applications out there on the internet that are not developed or published by Roku but you can have them installed on your Roku outside the store by downloading the installation file. Remember that these applications might let you play Dailymotion on Roku but they will void your warranty and might cause you to face legal actions in the longer run. I personally think that it is not worth the effort at all.
