Turn Your iTunes into WiiTunes

Wired Magazine's Listening Post clued me in to a great tip for those of you that want to listen and control your iTunes library with your Wii console and remote.


Just install the Opera browser on the Wii and then run dot.Tunes on your Mac or PC. This streams iTunes music, including purchased DRM-ed songs, to the Wii (and your online friends who have the password). It will allow graphical playback control on the receiving end; unlike the Airport Express. For more about how this works, read more

You'll be controlling dot.Tunes/iTunes playback with your wireless Wii controller and a flash-based interface on your television set. dot.Tunes is free for fifteen days, but later costs $30. This of course is not an ideal option for all music listeners because you will be streaming the music, and it will therefore, not be as crisp as it is when you play it directly from your computer or stereo. Still, I'm thrilled by the idea of using my Wii remote for something other than boxing and Zelda.
