Movie/Show cast, director, rating info on Roku?

I recently started using Roku 4K. I was able to set up streaming my movies from the laptop to the TV. But when I click on the movie title I get the plot summary only. I was hoping to get the cast, imdb review, director etc. is this possible?

Re: Movie/Show cast, director, rating info on Roku?

Unfortunately, the Roku Media Player only shows the movie synopsis. It doesn't include any additional metadata. For that, you'd have to use something like Plex. While Plex has a nice user interface, I prefer using Serviio for my DLNA server. You can't modify the Plex profiles, and Plex transcodes more than they need to on the newest Roku players.

Panasonic ST30 Plasma, Samsung JU7100 4K TV, Sony BDP-S3500, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Insignia Roku TV, Roku 4, Ultra and Stick, Yamaha RX-V583 AVR.
Primary server: Intel i5-6400, 8 gig ram, Windows 10 Pro, 18 TB hard drive space | Test server Windows 7 Home Premium, AMD Phenom II X4 965, 8 gig ram

HOWTO: Enable debug logging HOWTO: Identify media file contents
