    Check out What is Plex?

    If you are asking about putting a movie on a hard drive and connecting that to your Roku that is not how Plex works. You need a server with Plex Media Server installed, be that a PC, NAS, etc. That is where your media resides, then you connect to the server from a client such as a Roku.
