This Sparked Me!

We have wireless internet at our house and a Wii system. I found out you can get into YOU Tube through the Wii internet channel and I did a few of Coach Nicole's 10 min videos on the big screen TV last night. FUN!

    To access Youtube through the Wii, you must be connected to the internet, either by wireless or a wire. Then just go to the interent channel and open it. Then use your remote to find and type in www.youtube.com and hit enter. When youtube comes up, type either coach nichole or sparkpeople into the search box and you will get all of the videos. It is awesome.

    Thank you for that information. I never thought about getting on to UTube through the Wii. I will check that out! Thanks again!

    Thanks! I didn't know about this. I credit Wii Fit for much of my weight loss. I do it several mornings a week and then use my treadmill in the evening. It seems like a winning combination for me.
VAINVT 12/12/2014 8:40:00 AM

    Thanks so much. When I do Spark videos, I do them from my computer, which is not the clearest of roomiest option in my home. The TV would be much better.

    wow - that is awesome! I knew that you can watch tv while doing the run on Wii... but didn't even think about being able to do youtube! cool
FELINA 10/12/2013 9:13:00 AM

    Wii has added a youtube channel that you can download to the wii. Now you can access youtube directly instead of through the internet channel. I find this works much better for me. I go online to youtube on my computer, find workout videos that I add to my Watch Later list, then access them through my wii on the TV. Works great!

    Hmmm a few months ago I got on the Internet via my Wii and went to SparkPeople and tried to play SP that way, but wii kept saying out of memory and was a distressingly long download...maybe because of the ads? But this might work, will have to try it?! Thanks!

I've just recently gotten SparkPeople videos in my Roku.
