    Hey everybody! I was just thinking of how awesome it would be to be able to hook up my ipod to my wii using the usb port, listen to music, stream videos, and ultimately use the ipod as an alternative to an SD card. It would be called: WiiTunes.
    Just daydreaming... does anyone else think that this would be awesome? or even possible?
    P.S. I'm pretty sure Apple wouldn't support the idea, (coughappletvcough) but a standalone hacker/homebrewer might find this interesting...

    The chances of that would be very slim. So far, you can only listen to music on the Photo Channel or while playing Excite Truck. I have to agree though, it would be nice to have a Music Channel where you can upload songs from your iPod then play them on the channel.

    It would be interesting no doubt, and would give the Wii some more nice features.
    You can still charge your i-pod last I heard.

    It may happen, but I doubt it, and it almost surely won't be an Apple supported program. You can download a thing for the 360 so it can play music from your iPod, so something similar could happen for the Wii. But then again, the 360 actually has a music player......

    You can do that with anything that has a powered USB port.....

    Why would you want to do this? As Cyberzomby said, you can use MiiMusic to stream all your MP3's from your PC wirelessly to your Wii. If your Wii is hooked in to your AV amp then it's awesome.

    There's loads of apps out there like it. Personally I love FineTune on the Wii.....

    why do you want to listen to music while you are staring at the tv? o_O
    just listen with your earphones, speakers, idk. to me it seems kinda useless.. and why only ipod? it should be compatible with every other MP3/4.

    But then you have to sit at the internet channel. It would be nice if you could listen to your music in game.....

    You have the right idea, but you're putting yourself in a very small box.

    Try "Get nintendo to release support for all or most external hard drives and flash drives". THAT is what needs to happen.

    You don't. You just access it through the internet channel. That is why it isn't a good solution. You can't really do much else while you are using it.....

    Only if it's not called a WiiPod or whatever >:[
    [/ipod rant]

    It'd be nice. But I don't quite know how it'd work unless the wii incorporates UMS and MTP drivers.

    I think it would be cool to have a tiny controller thing, that looks like an mp3 player that plugs into the nunchuck slot on the wiimote, and it would open a little music player on screen so you can control it, then you can hide it then to play the game.. that way the games wont have to have it built into the options?

    Meh.. I dunno..
