Streaming to Wii
I just started streaming Netflix to my Wii. Is there an app to stream full length movies, including blu-ray , over my wireless router from my computer to my Wii? I've tried ORB but it is somewhat limited and I can't figure out how to play ISO dvd & blu-ray movies stored on my computer hard drive.
Thanks for any help and your time.
You can stream your media from your computer to your wii using smb shares with MPlayer_CE or WiiMC. A quick search will tell you how to do this easy withoutany issue.
I don't think there's way to stream images of movies (isos), but if they are in other format, like avi then use mplayer or wiimc.
You can rip the video file out of iso, sure. Google instructions for that. Then you would have avi file watchable with wii.
I dont think there are any HBC apps which will be able to open .iso media... WiiMC is your best bet, unless you already have tried on WiiMC.
If you dont mind me asking, why don't you just backup the DVD or Blu-Ray Disc using DVD Shrink or a similiar program? That way you can just set up an smb share which you can stream from HBC apps...
I am fairly new at this. I do have most of my movies backed up in ISO images. I can use Fabdvd to put them into file format. I don't know how to set up a smb share, don't even know what it is, or how to use it to stream from HBC apps. I'm running Vista ultimate, how would I set this up and what HBC app would I use to stream?

Thank all for your help. I streamed to the Wii but the quality is not great. Good for home movies but not for HD dvd, low resolution. Will start looking for wireless N media sharing centers.
Once again, thank you
