    Im impressed with Mplayer CE being able to play video files off a DVD Drive. I believe the next logical step would be to be able to access a wireless network and be able to play files via a computer on your Wii.

    Would this be possible?

    It does (and it did this even before loading video files from Wii DVD, back when it only read normal video DVDs).

    Take a look at the Samba configuration file, it has examples of how to get this set up.
