    Media Center type app?

    I have a wireless NAS with all my divx movies on them.

    Is there an app I can install that will allow my wii to connect to the nas and play movies? (I have homebrew installed)

    Also how can I play DVD movies on the wii?

    Thanks.

    Ok, try mplayer. I think it can load from USB, but I've never used it. I don't even know the supported filetypes.

    ^^ What Ossot said, I use Mplayer CE to run videos and music from my NAS with SAMBA. It works but, lags on larger files.

    Wow it even supports wifi, nice.

    I havent tried it yet, Im at work, will do so when I get home.

    Can anyone comment on its wifi streaming performance? What type of bitrate can it handle? I know that x.264 is too much to ask for the poor wii's wussy hardware, Im fine with that.
