The ABC's video streaming service is called iView. It provides medium quality streaming of TV shows for free for Australian IP addresses. There are players for Flash, PlayStation3 and iOS. However the ABC declined to develop an iView application for the Nintendo Wii, citing insufficient computing resources on the Wii.
Your speaker considered that a challenge.
It is trivial to run your own code on the Wii, and there is a actively homebrew community that produce a cross-compiling toolchain and supporting libraries for the platform. This talk will delve into the development of iviewiir and libiview: a piece of c code that uses libxml2, json-c, librtmp and mplayer to bring iView to the Wii. It will include an introduction to the toolchain for budding homebrew developers, a discussion of the challenges involved, and a live demo running on the Wii.
