Crreate a Wii media server

redkawa_20070611.jpg

Wii Media Center X is a Java-based web media server that you can have up and running in about 15 minutes. After downloading and unzipping the application, just run the following command (from the mediacenter folder) to start it up:

java -jar MediaCenter.jar

Run this on any machine that your Wii can see and you can use the Internet Channel web browser to access your media center at http://x.x.x.x:8192/.

I’ve noticed a few problems with playing audio files and the video isn’t sized optimally (you can zoom to adjust for this), but this shows a lot of promise. With this running on my primary desktop machine, I can encode/download FLV files that I want to watch and MP3s that I want to listen to. You just drag them to the Video/videos and Music/music folders. You can do this during the day as you come across things, and then you can view and listen to media in your living room whenever you like.

With a little spit and polish, this could be like having all the AppleTV or Windows Media Center functionality right on your game console.

  1. I just did it on my PSP Fat (IE PSP-1000) they just released the PSP-3000 which fixes this trick, but it works on the Slim (PSP-2000) and the Origonal PSP Fat, (PSP1000)

    To find out how to make a Pandora’s battery you can watch one of the varius tutorials on youtube or do a quick search on google, this news is probably a good year or so behind but anyone who doesn’t know this is probably very nice.

    IMO I loved my Homebrewed PSP 5.00 M33-3 PSP, No longer do you have to pay 50 bucks a game (if you simply want to just try, I buy games I want to play alot and support, 500mb-1G of space is a bit much since the biggest Memory Cards on your PSP is around 4gb)

    But, Emulation is amasing. Super Nintendo, Sega Genisis, the Origonal Nintendo, Gameboy Advance, Gameboy Color AND it all works exactly like a PC emulator using the same roms and save files and everything.

    The Best Emulator is the POPStation, which is the PSOne emulator. I just beat Final Fantasy IX on my psp and it was amasing.

    In any Case, this makes buying a PSP totally worth it. Pandora’s Battery and Darkalex need a big thank you for this.
