    I probably already know the answer, but does anyone know if WiiMC is still being worked on? The youtube functionality has been broken for months, and it seems the forums are basically dead. If it's not, anyone else working on updating the youtube support for it? Would be a shame for it to die, as it's a great app.

    I agree it is a phenomenal Wii app. Personally, i use official Wii youtube app for Youtube streaming now, but it would be nice to have WiiMC online media working as well.

    The problem with the official youtube app is while it plays videos alright, I'm unable with 95% of the videos to fast forward or rewind. And I've read I'm not the only one with that problem. Not sure how to fix it...if it's even fixable.

    Behind you breathing heavily
    I read somewhere that the buffering depends on the remaining memory on the wii itself. I had to delete big vc files to free up some space. It loads and runs better now, for me anyways.

    I have 5 blocks left on my Wii(that's like 1.2MB) and videos play fine.
