Wii U Can Stream MP4 Videos Directly From Your Computer

Watch trailers and more

European Nintendo fans are only just getting their hands on the shiny new Wii U console today, but users in the States are starting to find out some cool hidden features - such as the ability to stream MP4 videos straight from your computer.

Entering your computer's IP address into the Wii U browser allows you to beam movies directly to your GamePad and TV. Unfortunately the browser doesn't support AVI or MKV files - just like it supports HTML5, but not Adobe Flash.

This is a pretty nice little feature for the Wii U, and rather unexpected. Will you be trying this out? If so, let us know how you get on in the comment section below.

Thanks nintendomasterr for the heads up!
