If this 3rd party hack seems a bit over technical for you, it would just be easier to shift to an inexpensive streaming device such as the Amazon Firestick also because side loading in Roku devices is very unrealistic. It works out of the box for everyone.

Isn’t there a private Dailymotion channel on Roku?

A previously secret Roku channel “Dailymotion” is now nonoperational. And currently, there are no operational, non-certified, private channels for Dailymotion on Roku.

Also, the Web Video Cast app workaround seems to be more logical compared to mirroring or screening using Chromecast or Miracast as there are fewer lags involved and almost no gap in lip-syncing. And the app also can be used in place for the Roku remote.

So, if you’re comfortable with it, these are the ways in which you can run Dailymotion on Roku.


Listed above are the ways in which you can get your Dailymotion on Roku. If you’ve still got doubts, feel free to contact us for further information without any hesitation. Though, I don’t think that would be necessary anymore. Enjoy!
