    If you share the folder on your laptop, WiiMC can play them via network.

    Nice to see this still getting updates. Easily one of my favorite pieces of homebrew, I love being able to watch Youtube videos as well as .avi files. When I was in an anime-watching mood I'd download .avi files and play them on the Wii so I can actually watch them on a TV instead of my laptop.

    I'd have to agree, best piece of homebrew out there. I just updated to the new version and all works well. I have smb share set-up on my laptop so I can share my entire ITunes catalog. I'm unclear how the youtube videos work though, I looked at the guide but its not that easy to understand, for me anyway. If anyone can brief me on how to get it working it would be greatly appreciated.

    This has been working great for me, allthough I have a few suggestions maybe for a future update.
    As I use xbmc alot as well, and wiimc I think maybe being derived from that(mc in both names) I would like to suggest or hopefully see implemented in future updates

    First: Visualizations for audio of any sort. Never checked this, but default one is pretty plain and boring, but it does the job I guess. Xbox/Xbmc allows you to use really cool visualizations called milkdrop presets. Lots of cool colors and the sort. Really neat.

    Second: Now I know the youtube works fine, and I havent had any problems yet, but with the xbmc/xbox youtube plugin you get to see thumbnails of what you want to watch as well as navigate to other pages. It seems like with wiimc your search is only limited to one page of results, and no thumbnails, unless I'm missing something. Not a big deal, but definitely would make it a little more of a visual experience.

    Third: XBMC has a weather plugin that is visible on the home screen. Guess this doesnt really matter cause the wii has the forecast channel, but it would be cool if we could see the weather from the wiimc ui.

    Theres a few more, but I cant think of anything else at the moment, but with the exception of maybe
    the third suggestion, I'd definitely like to see the First and Second ones possibly implemented into future updates.
