    Even though YouTube closed and stopped being compatible with the Wii, Wiimmfi has not yet updated its WiiWare patch or released its patch WADs of channels.

    My opinion is that the YouTube Channel is not closed, but access to YouTube has been discontinued by Nintendo instead of Google, which gives error 20110 at the start, instead of a gray screen as witnessed by YouTube user Taryzs, this will be true, also when starting it from the emulator it gives an error of with connection test, this is due to the fact that the Dolphin emulator can not emulate the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection down a code.

    Now, Wiimmfi will be trying to recreate the entire Channel, to use the YouTube Channel again and watch your favorite videos on your Wii again, try to stuff things that the original did not have, like the HTML5 player and use the Python programming language to send YouTube videos from the original server to the external server.

    I also have my first doubt, is it possible to watch YouTube from the Internet Channel or if the official Wii browser does not work?, since the official browser uses Adobe Flash instead of HTML5 + CSS3, will it be possible in the homebrew browser WiiBrowser, believe that this use HTML5 + CSS3 instead of Adobe Flash?

    I do not understand why WiiMC is the final solution to watch YouTube on Wii, when Wiimmfi is simply to solve the 20110 error in the channel, although Wiimmfi does not solve it to use it again, but rather gives an unsupportable protocol error, which indicates the original server was off.

    RiiConnect24 does not want to reactivate the channel either, since it uses the Nintendo WFC instead of the WiiConnect24 service.

    This is my second doubt, Is there a Hombrew App for watching Youtube that is as good as the official channel? Preferably one that features a way to watch the whole playlists without having to manually select the next video.

    Will Wiimmfi revive the YouTube app from Wii?

    Will Wiimmfi be in charge of reviving the discontinued external applications on Wii?

    leave your opinion or your comment in the thread :-)

    No, because this has nothing to do with Wiimmfi.

    Let's see, what does that have to see? With RiiConnect24?

    the development of the YouTube Channel, is in orange, that is, it is in development.

    since Wiimmfi needs external help to support channels and applications.

    Why do you even want the YouTube Channel to be revived? I'm not sure how the channel works since I've never used it, but the Wii can only output 480p. You'd be better off with a laptop and an HDMI cable or a Chromecast.

    And your opinion is wrong because youtube didn't just drop support for the Wii, they also dropped support for several other devices
    https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6098135?co=GENIE.Platform=Android&hl=en
    Additionally, Nintendo confirms this was an action taken by Youtube and not Nintendo

    just that, but it works better on the Wii than on the SmartTV.

    it would only be that the development of the YouTube Channel with the Wiimmfi group comes to green to work again :-)

    If it's a smart TV, it might support casting from smart devices and PCs. If you have YouTube open on your phone or tablet (or download the extension for your browser), look for Untitled. this icon. You can project your videos wirelessly to your TV.
    If your TV doesn't support casting by default, buy a Chromecast and do the same.

    Do you believe this that Taryzs witnessed, true or false, about the gray screen?



    Please, if you do not have one that is in Spanish, you can put the subtitles in English.

    I'm sorry, but what are you trying to prove? Are you trying to prove that there's some hidden function or that it's possible to bring back youtube functionality to the Wii? Because it's not, Google dropped support for Wii, not Nintendo. Google also dropped support for several other products like Gen 1&2 Apple TVs.
    It's worth noting that Wiimm is literally the dev behind Wiimmfi.

    I think it works based on this code:
    Code:
    debug_content_url     file:///trusted/wii_dev_shim.swf
    
    # Debug settings
    #  load from web-trunk-qa:
    debug_flash_vars    dev=1&app=file://trusted/remote/https://web-trunk-qa.youtube.com/wiitv
    #  load from web-release-qa:
    #debug_flash_vars    dev=1&app=file://trusted/remote/https://web-release-qa.youtube.com/wiitv
    #  load from horcrux (no-auto-build):
    #debug_flash_vars    dev=1&relax=1&app=file://trusted/remote/http://horcrux.sbo.corp.google.com/wii/leanbacklite_wii.swf&urlmap=s.ytimg.com/yts/swfbin/apiplayer%3Dhttp://horcrux.sbo.corp.google.com/wii/apiplayer.swf%3Bs.ytimg.com/yts/swfbin/vast_ads_module%3Dhttp://horcrux.sbo.corp.google.com/wii/vast_ads_module.swf
    #  load from prod:
    #debug_flash_vars    dev=1
    #  load from prod/Charles-ready:
    #debug_flash_vars    dev=1&relax=6

    And what am I supposed to do with that?
    Look, it's time to move on from using outdated means of using stuff. People don't need the YouTube Channel anymore. There are better ways now to achieve the same thing. If you have a smart TV, you can probably cast YouTube from a PC or smart device, or (sorry for not thinking about this earlier), chances are, your TV has a downloadable YouTube app as well.

    A lot of people missed the YouTube Channel, because they were fun, innovative, unique, and had nice an interface. It's nice to
    when the YouTube App for Wii being brought back, especially after such a long down-time.

    Hey, I only have my 2 CRT televisions, one that my grandfather brought to me when the rifle of my CRT TV in my room was burned and the other CRT TV in my room, those are smart and you want to see on your CRT televisions, you can buy a PS3, a PS4, an Xbox 360, an Xbox One, a Wii U or a Nintendo Switch, already has its own YouTube app.

    Don't you own a smartphone or a computer to watch YT?

    I have a Canaima from the Government to see YT, but I am connected with Digitel and it is very limited to see YT, only Wi-Fi is possible, but I do not have a smart phone because mine broke the screen.

    you are very uninformed, because a phone and a computer are not the only devices to see YT.

    there is the Chromecast, some current Apple TV, the Roku, the SmartTVs, modern consoles such as PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U and Nintendo Switch.

    Wiimmfi will be in charge of reviving the YT Channel and other VOD apps from Wii that were closed or closed on January 30, 2019, as was the creator of TubeVita on PS Vita.

    You do not know anything that these devices are used to watch YouTube on TV.

    You call me uninformed but you don't know that your Canaima is able to connect to Wi-Fi, lol.

    I never said that SP and PC are the only devices where you can watch YT videos, I asked you about those because they are the most commons devices to do so. There are indeed so many ways you can watch YT that makes me wonder why are you so focused on the YT Channel.

    Also didn't Wiimm himself told you that the YT Channel has nothing to do with Wimmfi?

    It's awfully bold to say that someone else will do this work for you, especially when the person you're talking about has actually addressed you saying this will not happen because Wiimmfi does not deal with anything outside of games.

    because when starting the YT Channel it gives error 20110, since the Channel uses the Nintendo WFC.

    this is what Wiimmfi has to do with the YT Channel.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    YT Channel is a WiiWare game of the Wii Shop Channel, which allowed YouTube to be viewed on the Wii and requires internet connection, the key to this is in the Electronic Manual of the channel.

    therefore, Wiimmfi will revive it and plan to launch it for June 30, 2019, 2 years after the closure of the YT Channel

    Wiimm explicitly said he would not do this. YouTube does not operate on Nintendo WFC. YouTube is not proxied through any Nintendo services, therefore this has nothing to do with WFC and any revival effort will be an independent project, unless RiiConnect24 or another developer/group voluntarily step forward to work on it (not out of necessity).

    You cannot say that someone else will do what you want for you and if this is your attitude, I invite you to revive YouTube for Wii yourself. Entitlement is a scourge on homebrew scenes where developers get together and write code not for other people, not for money, but for themselves.

    Yes RiiConnect24 or another developer / group plan to revive YouTube on Wii.

    It would be somewhat annoying, especially RC24, and I would have to install RC24 to use that channel.

    It was like the use of Flash on YouTube that required an Adobe program, Adobe Flash and that's why it was changed to HTML5.

    in the case of Wiimmfi, simple it required to patch the wad of the YT Channel and that's it.

    In addition, the YT Channel has a test that will run the Nintendo WFC, the 20110 error when the YT channel starts.

    Wiimmfi is the current Nintendo WFC, you can solve the error 20110 in online games or channels with the Mario Kart Channel and the Wii Speak Channel.
