    So, with the recent 4.0 update, it kinda hit me. As stated in the update notes:

    -https://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wiiu/en_na/system_system_update.jsp?menu=general_info&submenu=wup-online-gi-update

    Would it be possible, just like being able to view MP4 videos, that you create a localhost server on a personal network, then make a way to upload images to your computer of gameplay from your Wii U games? I have coding experience (Bad at that), so this kind of uploader thing would be far out of my knowledge, not to mention that MACycle is coming along slowly.

    Has anyone attempted this at all? Or is this even feasible?

    I dont really know about coding, but in the moment the wiiu's browser is closed it would be disconnected from the server... Or not?

    It could be similar to the webapp gamepad ->pc adapter thing. Make a program that opens a port and starts a server on your local network. When the wii u accesses the ip address, it could display a single upload button and the pc server would recieve the screenshot and place it in the right place. Of course the web browser would have to be manually opened each time but it would be easier that uploading to some form of cloud storage and back.

    That's what I had in mind. The app that sends videos, though, only limits it to MP4 format videos and nothing else. But then, I'd have to see if any kinds of scripts would need to be installed.

    For anything other than MP4, on the fly video encoding would be needed.

    No, but when it lists the directory, all I can have it find is MP4 videos. I can't get it to open HTML pages locally hosted.

    Not sure what you're using but I just tested HFS and I could open an html file with it: http://rejetto.com/hfs/

    Thanks for that. After tinkering around with it, I was able to upload screenshots from it to my computer. I'll have to write a tutorial on it soon.
