Quick Start for Nintendo Wii

  1. Open the Wii’s web browser and enter the address http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:41952/flashlib for the Media Server or http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:41954/flashlib for the Screen Server, where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of the computer on your home network that is running TVersity. You can find out the IP address of your computer on Windows by following the instructions on this page. This will display the Adobe flash based interface TVersity offers for navigating the media library. If this page does not load, chances are you forgot to change your firewall settings such that TVersity can act as a server.
  2. Once the page loads, you can start navigating your media library. Select some audio file and it should start playing (for online content, and specifically online radio stations, it may take up to 30 seconds for playback to start so please be patient). During playback you can move the pointer down the screen to get the usual playback controls. You can click on the stop button to stop the audio and go back to the menus. You can also pause live streaming audio (like online radio stations), because the TVersity Media Server comes with built in support for time shifting.
  3. Go back to the menus (by stopping the audio) and use the UP button at the top several times to go back in the menus all the way to the top level menu. Alternatively move the cursor on the screen to the top and a toolbar will be displayed. Click the home icon on the toolbar and you should go to the top level menu. Select now to the Video option and then navigate to some video. After a few seconds the playback will start. During playback you can use the playback controls to rewind or fast forward (you cannot go forward beyond the latest point in the stream that was already converted to flash video).
