Hi there, was just wondering if its possible to use crunchyroll on the Wii's opera browser thing. I've only experimented a little with my own and it will work fine for all lower quality streams that u find on google video / youtube etc but when i try to use it for crunchyroll nothing happens. Would this be a problem with my connection, or can the Wii broswer not play videos above a certain definition?

Any feedback would be appriciated <3

Internet Channel on the Wii has upgraded to the Adobe Flash Lite which is Flash Player 8 with certain Flash Player 9 features. If I remember correctly, you are only able to watch the SD & HQ quality. However, I have tried it when the new player was implemented so my information maybe out of date.

Wii is currently not supported by us and I'm not sure if the Wii has the required hardware to play our videos.

I'm pretty certain the Wii would never be able to play our 480P or 720P videos.

Indeed the Wii does not support Crunchyroll with the latest firmware. There are alternatives such as broadcasters though.

netflix.com if offering WII access as a channel.

Unfortunatelly it does not have anime...

I wish you could consideer a WII options. At least in Mexico our conection speed do not support 720p, so it would not make any difference, WII dose support 420 p

The Wii is very under powered and to display HD video alone I'm sure is not even possible or even there 420P which is near DVD resolution. This will most likely change when the Wii U comes out. The flash player that the Wii uses is what many cell phones use.
Also to make a note this question is a few years old.

in fact, wii can reproduce 480p videos (using component cable) and , as a 2-month netflix user, i can say that using the service on wii is pretty satisfactory. I wonder if Crunchyroll will someday suport Wii and WiiU, since most of wii owners are onto anime and other japanese-related media.
