    Given development on the WiiMC app may very well be dead, I'm wondering if anyone else has the same problem I'm having with the official Wii app? Whenever I try to fast forward or rewind a video on the Wii Youtube app it states "Video is not available, next video will start in 5 seconds", even though the video plays just fine. Google's help forum hasn't been any help (as usual).

    Not only you, it happens to me as well. But I never worried about that, 'cause I don't like to watch Youtube on the Wii. But, actually, Nintendo could do something.

    Strange, google seems to have actually fixed the Wii youtube app. Sometime about a month ago I was alerted to an update on the Wii, and my problem is now completely fixed! Strange, figured no one would care about the Wii anymore...

    I was just going to make a thread about this. Cause after project M i decided to check the wii shop for fun (its been months i havent been on it). Sure enough, youtube had an update! Really surprised, Since Nintendo has moved on 3 years ago to the Wii U and even now is focusing on the NX.

    Doest seem much has changed though besides the bug you mentioned.

    Also speaking of updates, seems like the wii homebrew scene is not updating a lot as well.

    Nintendo is trying to slowly disconnect the Wii from WiFi so they get more sales on Wii u
