Google Video gains new life on the Wii

I played around quite a bit yesterday with the new Opera browser for the Wii, and I have to say, knocking about the web watching videos and such is quite a fun little diversion on the platform that Mario built.

What I found most interesting was how well Google Video is formatted for this kind of interface. Perhaps its how the video window is auto-sized depending on what the user is doing, etc. Not sure, but dinking around in there, watching this and that, was a breeze on the Wii. Youtube on the other hand, while able on any computer, was not as well suited…and also played slower for some reason.

Anyway, you Wii owners should try Google Video for when you just feeling vegging out after a long bout of Trauma Center.
