|This game is defunct.|
Do note the game no longer works at all without modifications. This is most likely due to the game's servers being shut down. As a result, further official developments with the game are unlikely to happen.
YouTube was a port of the video streaming website to the Nintendo Wii. In the case where you didn't want to use a computer or didn't have one, you could stream YouTube videos directly to your TV. Unfortunately, it was discontinued on June 28, 2017 in favor of the HTML5 players that were being used by newer systems.
In this application's files, there are some development-related settings, including non-working URLs for different variants of it.

While this screen isn't stored anywhere in the application's files, accessing the URL https://www.youtube.com/wiitv (normally used by the application) will bring up a screen (in an SWF format) that notifies the user that YouTube is no longer supported for their console. This screen is unused because if you were to try to access the application normally, you would just get the standard Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection discontinuation message and as a result will not be able to see this screen.
