    Basically, he asked if the Wii could browse the web, and if it could stream video.

    Just be careful on available memory - the size of the channel & the channel save are quite large.

    That's probably because of the sheer amount of stuff needed to be compatible with most of the interweb, and the save data probably contains cookies, cache, etc.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but couldnt you stream a movie online with orb.com. I can steam a move from my pc to my wii using this site. When a movie is streamed from the inernet it creates a folder(temporary usually). All you would have to do is find out which folder it would be and add it to your orb account. Just a theory guys. What do you think.

    Well, it's not that easy, since you don't have whole file while you're streaming. Therefore, Orb would... not work? I'm not sure.

    You know, this isn't exactly 100% having to deal with the internet channel and what not, but I saw that Netflix is about to launch a streaming service for the Wii. So yeah way to go for those that have their wiis hooked up to the internets.

    On a side note, I have to mention that nothing that is hooked to the internet is 100% safe from hackers and what not. The thing that everyone needs to realize though is that if you are on a Wii a hacker isn't going to bother with a Wii because it doesn't have anything they would want. More specifically Credit card information. and since I guess that everyone on here has hacked Wii's anyway and don't deal with the shop channel. that shouldn't be an issue.

    another note... even Linux and Mac is vulnerable to attacks. but it's because they are so few in comparison to windows users that hardly anyone is going to bother with attacking them, just like trying to attack game consoles... the only exception is the Xbox 360 which uses a modified windows 2000 for it's operating system. (and everyone wonders why it red rings all the time.)

    I have just tried out Playon.tv and it has Netflix, hulu and many more which works great. The only downfall is the picture is not so great yet, but playon says they are currently trying to get Nintendo to ad a patch in order to fix the problem. I suggest giving playon.tv a try to anyone.
