    I've always been able to view YouTube clips from the Wii Internet Channel, but now the video windows are all black and saying I need to upgrade my Flash. Anyone know what's going on?

    Nintendo needs to do something about the browser. I use it all the time, I just wish it had better flash and javascript.

    Id love to see a homebrew web browser. Or maybe a port of some PPC ready browser. Wish I could code [​IMG]

    Yeah, this happened to me when I updated my Internet Channel. Standard Youtube would hardly ever work, and once it did, it would only buffer the first 5 seconds and stop. Youtube XL still worked though. The way I fixed it was to just find a WAD for an older version of the Internet Channel, and install that. Flash 8 was then broken, but at least Youtube worked again (there's not very many good animations you can view on the Wii, anyway).

    Youtube is moving forward to a new standard in it videos 360,480 and 720, these newer encoding methods are not supported by the internet channel.

    I doubt Nintendo will do anything about this, as since the channel is now free they seem to have forgotten about its very existence.
