    I haven't got a clue, but i wondered what the possibility of making your own channel on the wii based off a flash website is? I would love to see TVCatchup even just hastily ported/injected as a channel to hopefully get it working a little like the BBC iPlayer Channel. What are the possibilities of that? I can imagine its not particularly easy?

    Shall i just keep dreaming of tvcatchup on my little wii? [​IMG]

    Can you load this url and have it work on opera on the Wii ?
    Remember there are 2 versions of Opera on the Wii with diff flash support.

    If you can load this site and view it on Opera then give me the url please.

    If you are able to open it with the internet channel it's easy. Could you please try it if it works?

    This works, I "think" this is as small as i can make it...

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Your code Fix needs IF .... etc
    But you don't need 3 urls just use the 1 function WII_OpenURL("http://www.google.co.uk/");

    The best one to make if you run apache or a web server is to hook it to your local host, make a page that displays the pages in either an iframe or frames, this way you can do a lot more, with some php or js you can get some cool features or simple ones like on onscreen clock, you can make the frames dynamic so they go away unless you hover at the top of the screen etc.

    You can do a lot more this way, if you use a frame and have php list dir of a folder then you can drop .swf files in and have a flash arcade which can even allow saves (to the pc), or the same again but for favourites or whatever you want zillions of without doing more than dropping files in a folder.

    If you put a local addy, then you don't ever need to recompile or touch the Wii and can make changes at your server side. I GET the ID6 from cfg and add it to some search queries to generate links that my kids can browse on psp/ds while playing the Wii and ... loads of other crap 8-)

    I could go on and on ... but this is more web dev than Wii dev so I'll stfu !! [​IMG]
