    stream divx videos of online TV episodes?

    There are a lot of websites that use divx to stream their videos. I don't think it's possible to install a divx plugin in Wii's Opera browser. Is there any other way to stream divx vids from a website?

    I'm basically looking for a way to watch online TV episodes. Hulu doesn't work with Wii, and as far as I can tell, you can't get to the TV episodes on the embedded version of YouTube. I didn't know if maybe there is some homebrew option that would work.

    You can get BBC iPlayer.

    winamp remote would be able to play files hosted on your pc if thats any help?

    or you could just download them, put them on disc then use mplayer to watch them?

    That may be what I have to do.

    I was really wanting to be able to stream TV episodes from a web site. The problem is that most of those web sites require the latest Flash and we can only get up to Flash v7 for the Wii.

    If I could find a web site that supports older versions of Flash for watching TV episodes, that would be perfect. Tvshack.net has a few old shows that work on the Wii, but most of the shows are either streamed in divx or they require the latest Flash. YouTube has an embedded version of their web site that works with Wii, but only the original version of their website has TV show episodes, and that doesn't work.
