Use your Nintendo Wii for Free Web Browsing


Watch YouTube Videos on your TV, Using your Wii Console as a Computer


Use your Nintendo Wii for Free Web Browsing

Use your TV to watch funny videos on YouTube with your friends and family.

Have you ever been in the situation where you had guests over and were all hovered around the small screen of your computer, watching YouTube videos, when, in the next room, you had a perfectly fine home theatre system, with seating that a cinema would envy?

The solution to using the computer was probably just as close as your Internet-connected Nintendo Wii game console.

I had a lazy Sunday and was sitting at my computer, performing some Google search engine optimization on a set of webpages and remembered a YouTube video of SearchEngineLand that discussed some of the information I was working with. First impulse was to open Firefox and navigate to YouTube, get my favorites and play through the video. As usual, Adobe Flash crashed partway through the video, but I really was not interested in resolving that issue right now.

I had known that I could use the Nintendo Wii to browse the web, but I never really considered using the Wii for that purpose, with any seriousness.


There is more to do with your Nintendo Wii than play Wii games

with that said, the Wii browser runs at SD resolution (or a little higher but not HD), thus pictures, text, etc, on webpages are much blurrier compared to viewing web pages on a PC browser.
