    I downloaded the internet application for my Wii today, but to my disappointment i found it unable to play flash files of any sort. It took me to the macro media flash website and was unable to install it. I was hoping I could watch youtube, flash movies, IGN video reviews etc on the wii

    You can!!! That sounds rather odd. I can watch flash videos (i.e. YouTube, Anime Streams, Newgrounds, etc.) and also play flash games without any problems. Did you do a system update?

    That doesn't make any sense! The Wii does have the power to play flash. It is a lower version of flash, but you still can watch and play flash. Try testing it again.

    Try deleting the internet channel and then a system update (hopefully the Wiii will tell you that you are up to date). Then reinstall the internet channel.

    Hope this helps.

    you can only watch flash videos up to a certain version , the wii is a couple of versions out of date i think , but youtube and google video should work fine (among others)

    im pretty sure wii has flash 7 while a lot of sites are using 8 and 9

    It's up to Adobe to release a newer version of the Flash SDK.

    Yeah; you should be able to watch youtube.

    However, several websites wields the power of the latest flash players and therefore, you cannot play it until wii sends out an update for the Wii.

    There are still a lot of website which offers flash stream videos that are not up-to-date.

    There might be something wrong with your internet, or your channel.

    I say re-download the channel (for free since u bought it already)

    and update your Wii
