Use Orb to watch movies from the Wii
In my recent search to see if you could remote desktop to your Home PC from the Wii, I have rediscovered something that I had actually known about for some time now.
There is a website Called ORB MyCast your digital media with Orb 2.0 remote pc access software . This allows you to store your music, photos, videos, documents, etc on a remote site and ORB allows you access to them from any Internet Connection on a PC or a Wii. I have actually been able to navigate to the ORB website using the internet channel and bring up a movie that was on my PC and watch it, all using the Wii.
Orb is appearantly already well aware of the possibility that they have included a help me section for getting your Wii connected to the Site and get everything going. ORB / Knowledgebase / How do I stream media (photos, music, videos) to my TV using Orb via game console ( Wii,Xbox 360, PS3)?
Now this might not be Earth Shattering but I do think it is very Cool. So wen you get a chance try it out. It works for me watched a movie today.
