    Media Center?

    I can't seem to find a good media center for the Wii. Below are the ones that I have been able to find and a reason on why I don't like it.

    Orb
    This streams things over the internet, not on your local network, which I really don't like.

    Red Kawa's Wii Media Center
    I don't like this one only because it is limited to playing flash videos.

    So, is there anything else I haven't found that I should try? Maybe there is a homebrewed WAD I can try?

    I wasn't until recently for some reason...

    The Wii looks like a great streaming device...maybe I gotta find out how to make Orb stream through your local network instead of the internet.

    I've installed ORB and tried it out. Apart from the fact that it streams via the internet, it also ran really slow. Video where skipping and could only be played via the Internet Channel on Flash.

    I don't know how true this is but I've read somewhere that the Wii will only play Flash video. I would imagine to create a "channel" that plays Dvix movie and other Media types would be a big job.

    If your like me and don't have an Xbox or PS3, getting the Media Centre to work on the Wii would be great. I'm no programmer or hacker otherwise i would of attempted it my self

    ORB streams locally over your LAN
    Read the ORB FAQ's
