    hi, i would like to know if there is a smooth way to play videos (divx,mpg,...) on your wii by connecting your wiivia wifi to a laptop or pc?
    i tried geexbox, but i believe it doesnt work. at least i was not able to get it done.
    on the other side i have to say that i am a little bit noobish, and that's maybe the reason way i don't get it.
    i would appreciate if someone could help me

    Glad you got it working, you could have done it from the thread over in wii hacking section but, there are allot of "confusing" posts, i posted instruction in there, some people still have problems, must be there routers or something, i dont know, it works for the majority of us.
    have fun with it! just keep an eye on new builds, will be posted on wiibrew, you want the SMB modified version (you have the latest one) [​IMG]
