watching dvds on the wii
Just need a quick confirmation. I have been reading this site about how to watch dvds on my wii:
libdi and the DVDX installer.
So, it states in this guide that I have to "Run the installer.dol found in the package, follow the onscreen instructions, and you’re done." I'm not sure what this means specifically. Where do I put the installer.dol file and how do I install it? Via Homebrew channel, via wad manager, or where? Also it lists three download links in the url above:
http://static.hackmii.com/dvdx.zip (for end users)
http://static.hackmii.com/di.zip (for developers)
http://static.hackmii.com/mplayer-r27458.zip (it isn't stated who this is intended for)
do I download all three of these files or just one of them? where do I put these files after I download them? I presume I have to put them somewhere on my SD card but i'm not sure.
Here is information about my wii:
- firmware 3.2u
- Backup Loader Gamma with 002 Fix Built in installed
- I softmodded my wii using the twilight hack and I have Homebrew channel with Wad manager already
- I also have Gecko os and ocarina in my HB channel

Install 'http://static.hackmii.com/dvdx.zip (for end users)' by unzipping it and putting it in a folder in your apps directory on your sd card. Run it and it will install the dvd reading functions. Then do the same with 'http://static.hackmii.com/mplayer-r27458.zip ' this is the software you need to watch dvds.

I was just about to post that I have solved this problem and I am able to watch dvds on my wii now. As usual, thanks for the tips anyway, dogeggs!
this is the guide I used to get dvds playing on my wii:

or one could also do as dogeggs outlined above.
