    Point your Wii's Opera browser in this direction to hear a personalised radio station.

    www.last.fm

    Type in the name of an artist you like and then similar stuff will be streamed to your machine.

    Works pretty good, but sound quality isn't perfect. I'm currently looking for some Flash based online prog that will stream music/video from my home computer. Any ideas would be appreciated. Enjoy...

    Orb only supports windows media, realplayer and .3gp though :( You can run a test thing with it where it detects the Wii as un unknown mobile phone :)

    Wow, Orb works!!!

    Download the little prog to your pc (serves up your content). Then login from

    www.Orb.com

    but make sure you login from Orb 2.0. You can then set the playback settings to be Flash and you can listen to music, and watch videos (even a connected webcam!) on your Wii!!!

    I love this little white rectangle of goodness! Have fun trying it out as a media centre peeps!!!
