Stream Movies From PC to WII with ORB
Hi there, please can this be considered for a guide as it works like a bomb! :045:
Step 1: Install Orb on your PC
Before streaming media, youíll have to prepare your PC. Download and install Orb, get it running and tell it where you keep your movie files, music and photos. (Orb | Media Anywhere)
Itís free, and will work without a hitch, as long as your PC and Wii are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
Step 2: Get Webbed up
To tap into your PC youíll need to use the Wiiís Opera web browser. If youíve already downloaded it, fire it up and tap in Orb. You might also want to save it to your bookmarks.
If you havenít downloaded the Opera browser yet, you can grab it from the Wii Shop channel, although itíll cost you 500 Wii points (around £2.50)
Once itís loaded, and youíve tapped in the Orb address above, itíll load up a page showing all the files youíve got stored on your PC. Click on one using the Wii Remote, and itíll start to play. Orb converts everything on the fly, so the Wii can play back any media, in any format. That means no hassle, no hiccups, just streaming media and movies straight to your telly!
