    I also get than memory error intermittently even with the same song that had worked before. In general, when I got that error, I have problem in playing some other songs too.

    ok....

    basically, a console which has an internet browser and/or LAN
    capability (xbox/xbox360/PS3 and now Wii) can use whats known
    as streaming software.

    this works pretty much like the media streaming devices which can be
    purchased to "move" music / pictures / video around your house
    either wirelessly or by wired methods.

    there are a few "streaming" programs now available which allow the Wii
    to do the above.

    what you do is install the software onto the pc that you intend to use
    as your "media server" and configure it to share the media to others
    on your network.

    the Wii connects to the server via it's internet channel...you simply
    (in the case of tversity) enter the servers IP address into the Wii
    IC and connect...it's that simple.

    obviously, depending upon your network / server configuration you
    might encounter problems with less than satisfactory playback, especially
    over wireless.

    tbh, if you're planning on streaming anything more than pictures / music
    i'd strongly recommend connecting to the network via cable (ethernet).

    video playback via 802.11g (54Mbps) can be decidedly jerky and lock-ups
    can occur on a regular basis, especially with higher bit-rate films.

    if you're using 802.11b (11Mbps) don't attempt to stream video!!!

    I use 802.11b on my laptop, and streaming is seamless.

    Tried the latest TVersity (beta), froze in at the begining of playback on a movie. I'm on 100Mbps wired ethernet with 10Mbps from ISP. Guess I'll just stick with my TV out method...But very good program nonetheless...

    what?

    streaming from the laptop to the Wii? what type of video are you
    streaming? what bit-rate is it? how far is the laptop situated
    from the Wii?


    it's a well known fact that the 802.11a (54Mbps / 5Ghz) protocol
    is best suited for streaming video, although it suffers greatly when
    pushed over further distance.

    802.11g (54Mbps / 2.4Ghz) is "ok" for streaming video, but will suffer
    lag at some stage.

    802.11b (11Mbps / 2.4Ghz) is best suited for static images and music.

    good luck to you if you can use it......

    Streaming from the desktop to the laptop is what I meant, but I also stream from that same desktop to the Wii, and the transmission's source is still 802.11b. In the case of the laptop, the receiver is also 802.11b.

    My router, located rather far from my freevo desktop with a low to very low signal was jumpy on the Wii at first, but it wasn't because of the wifi, because even then it streamed smoothly on my laptop. I tried a few different things, but decreasing the converted dimensions in TVersity settings smoothed it out.

    As to the actual transmitted bitrate, I have no idea because TVersity is transcoding to flv, and in the process making some sacrifices to both dimensions and bitrate. But the source files I've tried are either DivX encoded at around 1200kbps or Xvid encoded at around 900 kbps. As I reported earlier, adding additional compression in TVersity's settings makes things more jumpy on the Wii, but has no effect on my laptop.

    respect is due my friend.

    tbh, i've mainly streamed stuff using a 360 and using the 802.11a
    protocol. this handled high def .wmv's nicely indeed.

    the Wii streams *ok* via 802.11g, but the framerate is considerably
    lower than the 360.

    this could be due to two things...processing power and of course, wireless
    performance.

    well done though

    Before I got this laptop in 2004, I hadn't really payed attention to wifi--but didn't 802.11a come before 802.11b? And yet you say it's better at streaming?

    Does that mean that the progression to 11b was about something other than improving bandwidth?

    Downgrading a mp4 compressed file from original 640x480 to sub 300x200 doesn't make for mind-blowing video, but a lot of my programs I don't really care. When I watch the Wonder Years reruns, that it's not primo doesn't matter too much, but it is nice to be able to use my Wii this way.

    Well, I feel lucky enough on the wifi issue. I got my Freevo machine wireless with a cheapo used USB transmitter a few years ago. Looking at things, I could probably get a 54g pci card (and get a better signal and maybe even less latency) new for about 20$ on ebay, and I may do that someday.

    google or wiki for the technical aspects of 802.11a

    it runs at 54Mbps in the 5Ghz spectrum so is much less prone to interference from 2.4Ghz equipment.

    the only real downside is it's lack of wireless penetration, it apparently has a shorter range than 802.11b/g

    as mentioned, i used it solely with the 360 wifi adaptor and a linksys wrt55ag-uk wireless router. even high-def (720p) .wmv files played back smoothly.
