I hope I don't sound like a complete noob but I can't find what I'm looking for in the tutorial's. I don't own a Wii and am just trying to help a friend.
Is there anyway to browse the files on a desktop computer from the Wii and then play music, view videos, etc.? He installed Playon but we have not been able to get that to connect properly.
Mplayer CE will do what you want, it'll need SMB share configuring though. It won't work right out of the box if that's what you are looking for.
Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
