    Creating App Channels

    I understand that I need to install "wads" using a "wad manager" to create a channel. However, I see video after video on youtube with apps on their main menu as channels. How do I create channels from apps so that I don't need to have my SD card full of apps plugged in at all times? Thanks

    even though you have channels for the apps you still need the apps on the sd/usb

    what channels are you looking for ??

    Let me start by saying that I highly recommend against using youtube videos as basis for understanding anything wii related. Having said that, what they likely have are forwarder channels. These are analogous to a windows shortcut - they simply launch content either on your SD or on your FAT32 hard drive. So if you don't use a hard drive with yoru wii, you'll likely need to spend the $5 to get an extra SD card that you can dedicate to the wii.

    Cile has put together a thread with many common forwarders
