How to play videos on the Wii from a DVD?
This is what i would like to be able to do.
I would like to be able to load video files from a DVD on my Wii. Not SdCard, but a DVD.
Not Movie DVD's. You see, i'm a safety Technician and i do tons of presentations, but i don't have a Laptop. I would like to use my Wii (with a projector) to display Photos and Videos that are related to my lectures.
Can anybody help me out here?
I already have a 3.1u Wii with HBC and Neogamma RC4 and GBA Emulator all running on IOS 249 Rev 13 (just so you know i'm not totally new at this)
Not sure about photos, but this would work with videos.
Follow http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html until you have HBC and such installed, then follow this guide: http://www.wiihacks.com/homebrew/200...r-ce-dvdx.html which enables you to play DVD's in Mplayer CE without a modchip or such.
Huh... weird thing.... i just installed it (via cIOScorp 3.4) and when i got the video rolling it locks up after a few seconds.

What did you install via cIOSCorp? Though it doesn't matter anymore, as i think cIOSCorp enables disc reading aswell.. Though it is not recommended, messes up your wii by replacing every IOS you got.

MPlayer CE does have some problems with MP4, just wait until they are fixed.
And for RMVB:
"The wii uses PPC architecture. Newer Real Video encoded files (rmvb and some rm) only have support libraries written for x86 architecture availible.".
After a few seconds of video it freezes to a black screen full of Dump Data and some technical text i can't make anything of.
There seems to be some problem about a "4 second load" and a "DSI" problem.
It happened both times when i tried to load a WMV from my SD card (not SDHC, but i'm on 3.1 anyways...) and a WMV via DVD Disc.
I isntalled everything from cioscorp on my Wii. Including the extras. And i have a custom Mplayer channel... not the original one.
EDIT: Found the same error i was getting, it's this

Install the real Mplayer CE then?
Having the same problem plus no rented DVD playback...
Hello all. I been workin' hard to softmod my Wii (LU39, 4.0U), but I cannot seem to get video or DVD playback working from the CD drive. I meticulously followed this tutorial (New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii) without any resulting errors, then installed DVDx and mPlayer-CE as described here (http://www.wiihacks.com/homebrew/200...r-ce-dvdx.html) also without errors, however no dice! Upon inserting the disc, it seems to spin for 1-2 seconds, then stop. If anyone has any insight, please share as I would be VERY GRATEFUL! Thank you...
