    skyfire for wii?

    i have an iphone 4 and use an app called skyfire. its a web browser that allows flash videos to play on the phone. would it be posible to port this app to run in the homebrew channel on the wii?

    Have Skyfire on my iPod Touch and it works great. Sadly, for Wii, don't think it'll happen. Well, I don't think any homebrew developer will do it as they'd have to code their own clone and have servers that convert the flash video into a useable format (that's what skyfire does). As for a proper port, we can hope that Skyfire brings their browser to the Wii Shop Channel but I don't think they have interest in doing so.

    About the best than can be offered at this point is using one of the Media Players such as WiiMC. With the VLCShares addon, you can stream just about any media out there. But of course, it is not a browser as you have requested.
