    Correct me if im wrong, but i heard you cant download things straight to the wii.
    Why can't we download things to the wii (HBC, Music, Movies, PDF Docs, Word Docs, etc.)

    You are not satisfied even when you can download apps from the Homebrew Brwoser?

    There is an app called something like Wiitch (sorry if the names wrong). You can get this from the HomeBrew Browser.

    Once you get it you can edit the config of the app and add a URL of your own and download anything to the sd card, it arrives in a folder called Downloads on the root of your SD card, you can then use WiiExplorer to move it etc. Or if Wiitchs source is available you could edit the folder the download goes to.

    btw, is wiitch open source..anyone...?

    *EDIT*
    beat to the ftpii ... [​IMG]

    If your Wii takes like 3 minutes to download an update of a homebrew. How long time will get to download a film? [​IMG]

    Fook knows and no fooking way I'm trying, but I'm sure the OP can let us know if he does.

    WiiMC support ftp too, not that I've tried it, but thought I'd mention it.

    I think transfering the movie to USB or SD and plugging that into the Wii will be significantly faster than downloading it directly to the Wii. Even if your Wii is on the other side of town.
    Like they say: never underestimate the bandwith of a truck full of hard disks. [​IMG]

    Actually, Wiitch gets about same download speed wirelessly as a wired Internet Explorer download.
