I use the Wii a lot to entertain the kids with the iPlayer, easy way to use it on the TV.
Can you do that? I bought Mario Kart to play online, just before my mates all sold their consoles. I'm too obsessed with Lego games to try anything new anyway.
Yes the encode most iplayer programs specifically for the Wii as the Internet app (Opera for Wii) only has Flash7 so cannot cope with the newer flash stuff.
Not as high quality as the current iplayer and not like the iplayer beta either.
But pop in to the Internet (you can get it for a few quids form the Wii Shop thing) the just go to www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer
and everything is Wii customised.
I don't zoom it to full size as it seems a bit jerky, so go one size down from full screen.
After a bit you don't really notice the quality loss on normal programs, kids could not care less either
