    If your tired of transfering files from your computer to SD card, and your mad that the Wii doesn't connect wirelessly to Windows Media Center like the Xbox360 does, then chill out, because Red Kawa has a new piece of software that will allow you to do this.

    Stream Videos, Pictures and Music straight from your PC or Mac.

    Yea, music works perfectly fine. It links to your "My Music" folder on your pc, which you can find in the Start panel or "My Documents". Hope that helps.

    Hey again. With orb, you DL and you install into your comp. THen you make an account and log onto it on your comp. At that point, you will see the orb thing on the taskbar in the right hand corner of the comp. Then, go to your Wii, log on the web, and go to www.mycast.orb.com and you login with the account you just made. On the top if you zoom you will see options like "My Pictures" and "My Videos" and such. Pictures and music stream fine for me but my movies just wont load, maybe because they are 1hr+ or something idk. Hope that works!

    There is a link on the website that will take you to the registration part. There you make an account. Follow the instructions I posted previously and you will need to log onto the same site on the Wii itself using Opera Browser. So quick summary,
    On the Computer:
    1. Go to orb.com and DL the program
    2. Register using the link provided on the website
    3. Log onto it and you will see orb on the taskbar on bottom right of computer screen. (should be at mycast.orb.com)
    4. Put music into "My Music" folders
    On the Wii:
    1. Log onto Opera Browser
    2. Go to mycast.orb.com
    3. Log on and at the top, you should see the options to see pictures, music, etc..

    If you don't want orb to start up when you start your comp, right click on the icon in the taskbar and change the configurations. Everytime you want to stream from the comp to the Wii, you will need to load up orb. Orb also should work for any wifi devices. Hope that clears things up a bit. I'm still learning from it since I just got introduced.

    Sorry, I meant with Media Center X. I'm on a Mac so unfortunately Orb is out of the question for me.

    How do you use RedKawa's Wii Media Player X? You have to put it on your Wii or do you download it onto your comp?

    Edit: You know what...nvm. How do you get your SD card into your comp? I got this lame Dell and I don't see a SD card slot.

    Well if you don't have an SD slot on your computer. Then you would need to get a seperate device that you would plug in via USB and use it that way. Google it and you should find one at a decent price.
