    Now wouldn't it be amazing if we could take our Wiimotes and place them around us while watching a video or listening to a song on Mplayer or some other hot media players available to us through out our lovely HomeBreWare? Just think for a second... Mplayer WiiSurround Player v.1

    Any takers on this idea that know a little somethin' somethin' about coding the Wiiiizzle on the shiizzle dizzzle??

    Just thought I would throw that idea up in the air...I mean we already have controll of the wiimote through homebrew.. how hard is it to incorporate a script into an existing open-source media player?

    Even if it is done on one of the Linux distros.. .but we probably have more control of it for the time being in the homebrew itself.


    Peace my Wizzle Dizzle.

    That's got to be one of the most retarded ideas I've ever heard. For many reasons.

    holy crap, i never actually thought about this before, but the concept seems decent!

    at least people are coming up with UNIQUE ideas instead of repeating the same thing over and over again.

    It could be cool.

    It would be cool to prank someone with the wiimote though. Like hide it behind a couch and startle someone with it.

    I disagree. The only problem is the low quality speakers on the wiimotes, which could ruin the experince

    Wiimote surround would suck. The speaker in the Wiimote is crappy for anything but sound effects. Sorry.

    Marcan.. Your just pissed because I pissed on your modded gc controller thingy.. it wasn't that I thought it was a bad idea man.. it was because the way you flamed everyone Brekken about it and other people and you constantly criticize something that you see the least bit interested in. but I have let that go.. I was applauding you for the improvements to the HB1.01...nice job. Anyways... where I was getting with that is... who is to say we can't jack up those speakers on the Wii with attachable speaker maybe through the hunchuck port?!...and maybe even give it a few more batteries to boost sound... Something easy of coarse to reassemble and disassemble. Anyways. I thought it was something cool.. I see it caught your attention anyways Marcan! [​IMG]

    Peace!

    So why dont you just connect your Wii to a 5.1 Surround Sound system like me?

    I gots speakers all around me and its fine. Dolby Prologic II is almost the same as true 5.1

    That is sooo not even close to impossible and I am almost willing to juice one up... I don't know how to do the programming but I know I can the hardware portion of it... I used to take cheap walkman's apart and add a few small mods and addons with some really descent headphone speakers and well...let's just say they were pretty cool... I mean.. but think about that possibility... you already have the bluetooth capability... just a little more power and a better speaker and you could get something pretty cool out of it... But I'm not knocking you for your closed mind on this topic... I am just saying it is able to happen alot faster than us getting 6x speed on a softloader...

    Yea.. but we're talking about homebrew...macgyvers for the wii... not your basic surround systen hooked up... something to throw in your kids room to give them so surrounded animation to their favorite disney....blah blah blah!

    Just a guess here, but he might not have surround sound?

    Posts merged

    Highly unlikely.

    Even if you get the hardware modded, whats to say that the actual sound signal is going to get better?

    Point of surround sound is to get immersed into whatever it is your watching / listening.

    Naturally, the TV speakers will be louder than what the wiimotes will be throwing at you.

    Wiimote speakers are not loud enough to immerse you. Its about the same / worse than having 4 cell phones surround you while all of them are on speaker.

    Did you read what he was saying? He was thinking about modding one.

    Hes thinking of a softmod, not a hardmod...

    Whatever the Wiimote's capabilities of being used as a speaker have already been pushed to the limit on some of the Wii games that use it.

    Any higher and the speaker itself might blow.

    That and the batteries on the Wiimote will drain rather fast...

    I really do not think the Wiimote has enough power to blow
