Follow this method to watch Mobdro content on Roku if your Android smartphone already comes with a built-in native screen cast option. The name of the option might change from smartphone to smartphone. But in general, you can go to Settings and search for ‘Cast’ to find it.
Step 1: First of all, download and install Mobdro on your Android device from their official website. Since we are casting the content from our smartphone to Roku, we need to have the app installed on our device.
Step 2: You need to enable Screen mirroring option in Roku. For that follow the steps below
- Go to Settings
- Select System Settings
- Select Screen Mirroring Mode
- And now set the option to ‘Prompt’.
Enabling this option will notify you whenever a device is trying to cast to Roku TV.

Step 4: Open the cast option and tap on the search button.
Step 5: After searching is done, you will find the list of all devices available. From this, all you have to do is just select your Roku device and pair it.

Watch Mobdro on Roku (Devices without Cast option)
If your device does not come with a cast option natively then follow this guide. Here, we are about to install a third party application on our Android device to enable screencasting so that you can connect external displays to your smartphone and cast content.

Step 2: Once installed, open and setup the app.
Step 3: As mentioned earlier, go to Roku’s system settings and enable the ‘prompt’ option from the screen mirroring option.
Step 4: Now open up All Screen Video Cast app on your smartphone
Step 5: Now tap the search button and it will list all the devices connected to the same WiFi network (Make sure that both devices are connected to the same wireless network for this to work)
Step 6: Select the Roku TV from the list and then pair it.
Step 7: Once the connection is established and casting is turned on, open Mobdro, and start playing the video. Now both audio and video should be visible on your Roku TV.
This is how we can watch Mobdro video content on Roku using devices without native screen casting option.
So these are some methods that you can use to watch Mobdro on Roku easily. If you have cast option in your smartphone natively then you are not required to install any additional apps or software for this purpose. But if your device does not come with the Cast option natively then you want to install the app to cast on your phone.
