    Is there any homebrew program that can do what Orb does, i.e. stream content from your computer to the wii. With orb it keeps stopping every 5 sec then buffering. I have tried to pause it and let it buffer but it's terrible..oh and it can stream avi + srt subtitles either (another letdown). What are you guys using (program wise) for wii streaming?

    Weezo's nice.
    Honestly, streaming video to the wii is something you'll toy with for a few days, then get bored with.

    There's no program that can run .avi etc off a SD card...

    Yeah, MFE I think...
    I've heard it's rubbish anyway, so I wouldn't bother. Besides, it's not like you don't have a computer or DVD player right!

    MFE For the Wii works perfectly fine with .AVI movies, as a matter of fact I was watching a movie on my Wii the other day and it was playing perfectly. While it may not have a good interface (you also need a GC controller to make it work), it's completely functional.

    Hey there awesome!! I have a Gamecube Controller (4 in fact) so should be good to go. But the latest one is in .ELF...do you know anyone who has made a homebrew channel version? Anyway since its 1am here, i'll give it a shot tomorrow and see how it goes. Does it support .SRT btw?
