    Turn A Wii Into A Home Stereo For $5 (Or Less)

    Here's how you can turn your Wii into a home stereo able to play your
    entire personal music library and use none of the precious Wii storage for
    $5 or less. Since most people already have their Wii connected to decent
    speakers, you can get great sound and have all your music at your
    fingertips without adding another device to your home entertainment system.

    Step 1: Signup for a free online music locker at MP3tunes dot com.
    You'll immediately get 1gb of free storage space along with software for
    Mac/Win/Lin called LockerSync. Use this software to load your locker from
    your PCs. This will put your songs into your locker, remove duplicates and
    add artwork for every song.

    Step 2: You will need to connect your Wii to the internet. Every Wii comes
    with built in wifi receiver so connect it to your home wifi network in the
    Wii Settings area. You will need Wiiware which costs $5 if you don't already have it. Buy it in the Wii Shopping Channel. This is a full functioning web browser you can use for browsing, web mail or an
    interface for your home stereo. After purchase you will have an Internet
    Channel.

    Step 3: Use the Internet Channel on your Wii go to:
    mp3tunes.com/wiitunes Then enter your music locker account information
    from step 1. You can browse your entire music library and play it using
    the built in flash player. The music streams over your net connection on
    demand so it won't use any of your storage (blocks) on your Wii. A screenshot is attached of Wiitunes.

    Tips:
    - You will want to add a bookmark so that it is easy to return to.
    - MP3tunes gives free upgrades to unlimited storage lockers with priority
    to lockers with activity so be sure and use your music locker.
    - Keep the LockerSync software running in the background on your PC and
    the Tunewatch feature will auto-load any new songs on your PC (ripped CDs,
    AmazonMP3 tracks, MP3 downloads, etc) directly to your locker so they'll
    always be available on your Wii.
    - Even if you don't use your Wii often for listening to music you will
    have a backup of your entire music library you can sync to any PC.

    You may be wondering if you can play music in the background while you do other things on your Wii and sadly you cannot.
