    Hi there

    1) Have you enabled Media streaming in the settings.
    2) I think you need some type of application to start the Roku service --have you started it.

    I use MEZZMO for my Media streamer so I can stream from Computer (server) to TV's around the place -- you need to ensure any DNLA flags are enabled so the devices you want to play on can see and access the DLNA server (in my case MEZZMO).

    3) you might need an exception in the firewall but the application should sort that out.

    Is your ROKU stick in the computer or on another device like a TV.

    Note the ROKU device needs an MHL port to function.

    What is MHL and why do you need it? | TechRadar

    This guide should be of help

    So Windows 10 is not going to have a native app to connect to my Roku Stick,Like miracast?
    And if I have to use a 3rd party app like MEZZMO,Do they have a free version or do I have to buy this?

    PLEX or Kodi will allow you to connect from the Roku to the computer. You may need to install an app on the Roku to connect to the server.
