    Really? Oh I never used it. It just says it plays files from your PC. The computer in my room has all my music on it but isn't connected to the internet so I won't be able to use it.

    a program called WiiCR lets you view files on your PC as long as it is listed to be shared and it streams DIRECTLY from your PC. future updates will allow for photo viewing and text file viewing plus some other fun stuff

    I too tried WiiCR, I could not get the peral add to install told me that Apache was not installed. Problem is I installed it many time with diff settings. Could not get the damn peral add on to install no matter what.

    Please big N make a media and windows file acces channel. Make the Wii BETTER:confused:

    Never thought of that.
    Can't you just set up an ftp service on your PC with anonymous access? I'll try it later.

    If your not going to leave your thread open-ended, then tell us how you can do that. Did you mean for that to be a question or something?

    He is a noob he thinks that because you can stream media from the internet he thinks that means he is getting it from his pc.

    Wii media center x is great, its easy to use and easy to set up here is a link
