    if you use ORB you can stream video and music, but like mynameis said, its terrible... there is one alternative to orb that I havent tried yet! and that is to get the wii on a cable network and thene stream...

    but you have other options...
    * Weezo ( http://www.weezo.net/index.php?lang=en for more info)
    * wii media center X ( redkawa.com for more info )

    whene I ran Weezo it worked very good.. but did one mistake thene... streamed over wireless network.. should work better on cable network ...

    I've never tried it, but tversity will work on Wii too.
    You could also try to run a media player on the wii itself through homebrew. GeexBox for example.

    Please elaborate?

    And the user that said Media Centre X by Red Kawa, well the programme has stopped being developed.

    I only bother with MP3s and this works awesome, just a small app and uses very basic flash so even some phones and other basics can use it too.

    It's back under work again and will I think be adding video and more audio formats on the next release.

    Streaming is horrible, just use MPlayer and DragonMediaPlayer.

    Take a look at the sticky topics in the Hacking subforum here in the Wii section. They explain all about running homebrew (such as mediaplayers)

    The new versions of Winamp come with Winamp Remote and I've been using that.
