    Ok i dont understand what the smb feature on mplayer ce does, i binged "what is smb" and this is what came up "SMB, which stands for Server Message Block, is a protocol for sharing files, printers, serial ports, and communications abstractions such as named pipes and mail slots between computers. "
    i still dont understand what it does. so can anyone explain what it does to me in layman's terms?

    In basic, it's what Windows uses to share files.
    You can stream media from a server with SMB functionality. (This includes just a standard fairly recent Windows PC)

    If you mean the bandwidth between PC and Wii it's "Yes"; if you mean the one you have on the Internet "No".

    So let me get this straight, your computer sends a file wirelessly to your wii to play?

    well the wii accesses the file from the shared folder on a pc, it save burning DVD's, puttting files on a USB pen etc...
