    I have some movies on the Wii's USB HD and I was wondering if it would be possible to stream movies back to my PC?

    Thanks

    No-one tried to do this yet?

    No, because it's mind blowingly counter intuitive.

    Plug the damn hard drive up to your computer and copy the files back over. Why in the fuck would you stream from your Wii to your computer? It's like asking if anyone's tried tying two horses up to their car.

    For those who do want to try and help, I've already tried serving them back through a web server, but just couldn't get it to work properly.

    IMO, this would be a great little trick which could be used to serve files to more than one computer.
