The ultimate list of websites optimized for the Wii (even more to be added)

To be continually updated (Updated: 2x)

Finetune.com

So I have a Wii. I play games, and surf the internet with it. Still, it’s only a matter of time before I run out of games to play and things to do online, especially if the nearest GameStop is half an hour away and I’m too lazy to get up and buy myself a new game, seeing as how I’m trying to enjoying this extra day of freedom.

The below list includes links to websites with:

Instant Messengers | Search Engines | Music | Videos | Flash Games

If you own a Wii, why don’t you bookmark this page so you can easily find Wii-optimized sites later. Also, if you need help with your Wii or want to see more Wii-related content out http://www.wiitalk.co.uk However, there won’t be an abundance of links right away. First I’m trying out all of the sites, so I can give an honest but short review before you visit the site. Anyway, enjoy!


WiiAim- This is the AOL Instant Messenger specifically made to function easily with the Wii. However, it hasn’t been released yet. Keep this one bookmarked though if you happen to use AIM frequently. For now, you can use AimOnPSP, made by the same company to run AIM with in your Wii internet browser. :)


Wii.Clusty.com- A site based around the sole objective to let people search the web, which also happens to be optimized for mobile devices such as cell phones, and the Wii.


You can always download your favorite music onto an SD card, but instead just use online services to create playlists that you can access from your Wii.

Finetune- Create several or at least one playlist from your computer, then access them from your Wii using Finetune at http://finetune.com/wii! No downloads needed at all. If anybody feels like listening to my playlist(s), simply click on the profile icon there and type in “mvraphy” without the parentheses. Each playlist can be up to 45 songs and have only three songs from each artist, that way you don’t get tired  from listening to only one music artist.

Wii Hear: Choose from many diverse online music stations on a list, or connect to any other station you like here and stream music from it. Just follow the instructions on the radio page.


All of these play mainly YouTube videos, but the size it shows the videos at and more differs per site, so its best you try out all of them and find the one you like the most.

WiiToob – Shows larger videos and larger search results as well.

MiiTube – This one is my favorite since it offers a Wii Gaming Channel and is more “PG Rated”, but the videos shown aren’t as large.

SofaTube – Use a “desktop” to organize your search results from videos and view videos (one at a time). Works rather well, but if your television isn’t very large you might be better off not using it since the  “desktop” gets crowded easily.

Viewii  – One of the not so pretty sites, but yet it works rather well. Except for the fact that sometimes videos that are no longer available show up more frequently on the search results. However, it does have links to pages that show YouTube’s “Featured Videos” and  “Most Popular” sections on the site itself, which are also optimized for the Wii.

Youtube Shuffle (Wii) – I wish more of these sites would use blue, they would look so much better if they used more than the color grey. Anyway, this site basically does what it’s title is. You search a keyword and a random video is played pertaining to that keyword. Works rather good actually, I only hate the design. Also shows videos from YouTube’s Popular, Recent, Featured, Top Rated, Discussed, and a Favorites(?) sections.

StumbleVideo – Works basically like StumbleUpon, but here you watch videos instead, rate them (with a thumbs up or thumbs down), view different channels, and of course share the video with your friends.


: Here are a whole bunch of online game sites that let you play games made with Flash.

Miniclip (Wii Compatible Version) – These basically show the games that can easily be played with a Nintendo Wii, but sadly there aren’t many Action games. :O.

WiiScape – All in all about 48 games, featuring some older ones such as Goose Hunt, which came out originally on a Nintendo NES I think. I know I have one of those lying around in my attic, maybe I should play it a bit for old time’s sake.

WiiPlayable – Shows both games for the Wii and Wii News. Also does a nice job of enlarging the games so they’re easier to play on the Wii.

WiiCade – Not as great games, but at least.. yeah not much of a good side to this site.

Albino Black Sheep – These site has some games, good or bad depending on your taste but the site is really only great for some of the funny flash videos there. Here’s a good one on how the world will end.

Quick update: Search Google on your Wii, with some added design and ease.

  3. @harry:

    You first need to have an internet connection. A regular wireless one will work or try using the Wii Lan Adapter. If you need help connecting try this guide.Then go to the Wii Shop channel. There you will be able to find channels either for free or for a smal lamount of money. Hope that helps. :)
