I know WiiU is already dead but...is there an app to play videos? (mp4, Mkv, etc) Wii had some media players so it would be nice to have a one on Wii U :D

You know what would be super cool... a version of Kodi for Wii U! Imagine that XBMC (Xbox Media Center) running on a Wii U!

I just wonder why the WII homebrew can't be ported to wii u? WII MC can't work in wii u mode? Or least maybe a file browser that uses the web browser's video player instead at least? :unsure:

The Wii U homebrew scene is not very active. The PS3 scene is also pretty dismal... it's all definitely feasible. In another thread I was just bitching about the lack of native dedicated emulators... same issue. I guess there are just so many Wii's out there.. still you'd think something would get ported.

An HD version of WiiMC would really be nice wouldn't it?

    Ken I thought they just upscale 1080P to 4K anyway?
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Not that it matters, upscale still looks nice to my old eyes lol
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    At least on my TV when it upscaled 1080P content to 4K it does an amazing job.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @K3Nv2, Are they the HDMI stick kind?

    I really like the Shield TV's upscaling. Looks stellar to my tired eyes.

    @K3Nv2, That's a process called "aging". Natural causes are the root of illnesses. But it can also be an impact from life.
