with proper buffers and all i dont see y not.... high def video... i doubt... but standard yea
I wood be real excited for this if I didnt have mplayer ce + torrents
I can't see it working too well, but who knows.
It's completely feasible.
Last time I checked there was a similar service in Japan where you could download shows and movies to watch on your Wii (for a price, of course). Most of them were kids shows, but it still shows the proof of concept. It's something I wouldn't mind.
Torrents and MPlayer CE > Netflix.
I don't think it's going to work :/
not the technical bit, but since sooo many wii owners pirate stuff, I hardly think they'd stop pirating tv shows or movies because they can download them on the wii...
hmm, no... I like the idea, but I would never pay for it :/
I know about 10 Wii owners, and I'm the only one who pirates.
Piracy isn't so common on the Wii (yet)
The "high-definition" streaming video provided by Netflix is so compressed that it hardly looks better then an a DVD that was up-converted to 1080p.
I don't think the Wii is suitable for Netflix. Maybe the next system. Not this one.
I meant, that many wii owners pirate OTHER stuff than wii games etc. like movies, music, tv shows etc. and they won't stop that because a product like this is released.
and to be honest, I know 5 guys with wii's, and I'm the only one who doesn't pirate wii games... It is fairly common with wii pirating, but that's not what I went after anyway.
I imagine a very small percentage actually modify their Wii console. Most are probably ignorant to the fact, or just don't want to risk it. None of my other friends have their Wii's modified.
It sounds like a good idea for legitimate customers to be able to watch movies on their Wii. Now if only Nintendo actually allowed dvd playback.
The BBC iPlayer app for Wii works perfectly fine and that's streaming TV shows, so this would work and I'm sure there'd be people that would buy it.
wii can barely play youtube videos. i doubt it can handle this. sounds like a bs rumor to me
Not seen the new version of the Internet Browser then? That or your net speeds are awful.
Works brilliantly for me and also the BBC iPlayer streams films without any problems at all. This would be a dedicated channel of course so would work far better than the browser tring to stream video ala youtube.
well youtube videos are flash-based -> bad implentation of flash = bad playback
Netflix won't be based on flash for sure...
Just imagine if they are downlaodable, hackers would be able to put any video they want on the wii menu
also the opera browser is pretty bad, a netflix based system will have it's own thing just like the ps3 version....but seeing as the wii isn't made to play dvd's the netflix disc might not work, or else they'll have to make a disc that will work with the wii specifically.
The netflix disc would be a game disc. But why bother. Nintendo could just have a channel available through the shop channel.
It's been said before but, just because streaming of videos via things like flash are slow doesn't mean Netflix would be slow. If you were to directly stream movie files or to have it streamed through some manner more efficient than flash then it could work with definite ease.
Maybe they'll do something like the PS3 where it requires a free or cheap netflix disc which would more or less hold a optimized version of the netflix video player for the Wii.
Instead of pirating the videos pirate the Netflix.
