    Has anyone had problems with peekvid.com where after 30 minutes or so the stream will stop and you will not be able to continue your movie?

    Also certain movies do not seem to play at all, it will just say "loading" and never start to play. However when on a computer it plays fine.

    I am thinking the hard drive in the Wii is not large enough to buffer an entire movie.

    If that is the case then it most likely definitely does not have enough room to buffer a full length movie or an hour long tv show

    not speed it up - speed is not the issue... it will give me enough space to buffer an entire movie. I think the reason that my streams die and do not let me continue after 1/2 hour is that there is not enough storage to buffer an entire movie or 1 hour long tv show.

    how would you tell the Wii to store the buffer on the SD card and not the internal memory?

    its unlikely the wii will be able to buffer to a removeable memory...so i think you may have to get used to it, or stick to your pc for browsing vids:sad:

    the space has nothing to do with it if people are having issues with it on their PCs. I have had the same issue on my work computer which has 200gigs of space, don't waste your money. Buy the movie or download a real copy :)

    Just wait for the final version. hopefully it'll help with the buffering. i just know that SD cards can't help anything with speed. i don't understand why people would think that.
