i have to say this is one of the best, nice and easy, very fast as well.......than you
There are a lot of great posts on this topic. I think this topic should be fragmented to Initial setup and problems, SMB guide and setup, Tweaks. 9 + pages is alot of scattered info.
Some simple clarification on the SMB. I was under the impression that my external hard drive was plugged into the Wii and that I could network to it. Now If I am understanding things correctly the SMb share is a shared folder on my networked PC that WiiMC look to for the files to be streamed to it.
WiiMC can look to 3 folders on your computer using SMB, one for each topic - videos, music, and pictures. All you do is specify which shared folder to look for, for each topic.
any chance the online function can be disabled (apart from not connecting to the internet at all) coz i put it my nephew's wii and i dont want him accessing that coz there are some adult links? BTW he is only 8
You investigate tha here yet?
WiiMC - WiiBrew
if anyone is interested..
I have removed the whole onlinemedia file from the WIIMC folder (be warened, if you do this you will lose the online function) and it did solve the problem but i only wanted to remove the adult links but this is better than nothing.
