    Mplayer Issues

    I just recently installed the homebrew channel on my wii. I have now downloaded many apps and emulators which I have enjoyed. But the main purpose I hacked my wii was to play DVDs. I just downloaded Mplayer from libdi and the DVDX installer. and I get on and go to the menu than I press play dvd and I here the disc spin for about 10 seconds then it just freezes. So I looked it up and read that I need the DVDX stub so I installed it but I dont know where to place it in. I tried the root of the SD card (unsuccesful) the apps folder (unsuccesful) and then the folder itslef for mplayer but there is already a boot.dol in there that I don't want to replace. So how do I get it working please help!

    What did the files for dvdx look like?

    Was it some thing like (folder) - boot.dol, icon.png, meta.xml?

    Or was it more like dvdx_stub.dol?

    I got a zipped folder that said dvdx and inside that a normal folder named dvdx and then a file inside that called boot.dol

    I *beleive* and some one can correct me if I am wrong, but there should be a folder in the apps direcotry for every app.

    In that folder there should be a boot.dol, icon.png, meta.xml.

    You should be able to look at the files of other working apps to see the format.

    Yes, I understand what you mean and my app for mplayer does have all those different files but its the DVDx stub that has only the boot.dol and I have found no other file that has more than that, plus it says in the read me for mplayer that I should download it and look at the readme which is also not in there. It may be because it isn't an app but I don't know. If anyone has successfully done this or nows what to do or has a link to a good DVDx stub than please provide me with it thanks.

    Try making a folder, renameing the .dol file to boot.dol.

    Copy the .png and .xml file from a diffrent app. Then edit the .xml to match the new file and give it a go.

    DIfferent twist

    I actually had mplayer working after installing homebrew and down reving to 3.2u I was able to do the DVDx install and watch a DVD on my Wii today
    I tried to watch another DVD and I get
    Mplayer Wii port @2008 Team Tw.....
    Running under IOS36
    Video:640*480 (678*480)
    fatinitdefault failed

    and then it goes back to homebrew SD loading

    I have done no other mods just played games
    what could have happened?
    more important how do I fix it?

    Not that I know of.

    But if you did not install starfall I believe disc can still update your system.
