    I don't know if this has been said before, but i just came across this media player.

    http://www.x-oom.com/usa/products/mediacen...orwiiDETAIL.htm


    Has anyone used this and if so is it any good? I am currently downloading now so will be able to report back soon.

    It says it can stream Divx etc over Wifi as well.

    That product uses the Wii's Opera Browser.

    In the end, its no good.

    Just use MPlayer for streaming purposes.

    It appears to be a flash based player using the web browser so no it is not going to be any good (well it will probably be better than the Motion JPEG stuff the stock wii has).
    You are better off with a proper homebrew player, they have some decent capabilities.

    Thanks for the reply guys.

    I guess if it's based on flash, it will suffer the opera error ( out of memory ).

    Oh Well.

    @Skarface05 I got the occasional error when I was playing with it back when but during was OK provided I did not mess around with too much.

    Also you can hack the browser and give it a bit more memory if you wanted.
