If I'm streaming something on PC, can Plex stream it to Roku?

For example, say I'm watching a live stream of something on my PC directly on a website, is there any way that I can use Plex to view that stream on my TV via my Roku?

    No, there's no way to "mirror" whatever is on your computer screen to a Plex client. If it's a site that has a channel or works with the queue then you may be able to watch it on your Roku, but not by mirroring what's currently on your screen.

    Ok thanks.   BTW, the website is livenewschat.tv.  They stream HLN and a couple of other channels there.   I don't get HLN through my satellite company and would love to be able to watch it on my tv somehow.
