    I built a homepage for my Wii U. Its an html file. Is it possible to load it onto the Wii U? Or link t it from the Wii U?

    How can this be done?
    Can the Wii U browser point to a local file? Like this:

    file:///F:/Test/homepage.html

    No, you'd need to set up a web server on your computer and then go to it on the Wii U browser. Make sure your computer and Wii U are connected to the same network, set up a web server on your computer, and then navigate to your computer's IP address on the Wii U browser.

    Hey Marionumber1. Whenever I see you and Maxternal post I know it will be the truth and classy. Thanks for the help. A guy worked on a gamepad to pc over internet program and others use media servers. This reminded me of that type of work. I wonder if anyone is working on delroth's gamepad info he released.

    You can also use HFS (HTTP File Server), it's free and I'm already using it to get screenshot from my WiiU.

    Well the OP asked for a"local" way to do this.
    You can upload the file anywhere on the web accessible with HTTP or HTTPS and it will work...
    But only if the Wii U has a web access...

    I had built a homepage and I wanted to use it on the Wii U.....a homepage with lots of links to youtube and other things....that was my original intent on trying to load a local html file. uploading to google drive allowed me to access it easily. easier than setting up a website via WAMP or something similar.

    its a shame they don't allow the wii u browser to just load a local html file. I guess security reasons?

    can the Wii U only play youtube files in 720p? It doesn't have any options to go higher to 1080p.

    By definition, a local file is only valid on your computer, not the Wii U.
