MPlayer CE is an unofficial port of the very popular multimedia player for
various platforms including Windows and Linux. This Nintendo Wii port
features the same compatibility that the other versions offer, but is limited
in some aspects as it can't playback some high resolution videos due to the
processing power of the Wii.
MPlayer CE will allow you to watch various movies in different formats on
your Nintendo Wii including AVI, DIVX, XVID, MPEG2 and DVD Videos. It
actually supports a huge range of formats and can playback media from DVDs,
SD Cards, USB drives and over your local area network using Samba (SMB)
shares. MPlayer CE also allows you to listen to radio streams over the
This port is based on the original work of Team Twiizer's MPlayer Wii port
and uses code from [rOn]'s MPlayer Wii port along with code from GeeXbox. It
is currently maintained by Scip, tipolosko, rodries, AgentX & DJDynamite123.
While there are numerous ports and versions of MPlayer for the Nintendo Wii
its hard to tell which one to use, but this one is being heavily developed
and surpases the other versions due to its performance, optimizations and

Configuring your Wii with USB 2.0 support.
You need to install the USB 2.0 cIOS from here
You must then then reinstall DVDx using advanced mode and selecting IOS202. Even if you don't plan on playing DVDs this is necessary for MPlayer CE to detect if the cIOS is installed.
Plug in your USB device before loading MPlayer, and it should be mounted. Some devices do not support hotplugging.
Users with system menu 3.4 or higher will not be able to use USB2.0 with MPlayerCE because the DVDx installer for this system does not have an advanced mode. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do about it.
If you plan on updating make sure to install the cIOS and DVDx before updating.

mass advertisement above...
anyways i hope the update solves the issue of the video not being able to fit my whole screen horizontally
edit: i meant vertically =) cuz of course videos in original 4:3 can be stretched to 16:9 but it looks ugly

This works perfect for me except the hard drive part, I connect an external hard drive 250g, NTFS format, and then select Wii USB and doesnt load anything, anyone knows the problem? My wii is at 3.2e. Thanks in advance!
I guess this kind of utility might be useful to someone out there but I hope someone is developing something halfway serious with a UPnP/DLNA client.

I'll have to see if this is better than the Geexbox i have running for my parents. I haven't had much trouble with that one, so we'll see if this is an improvement.
i've had the version 5 for awhile but the only problem is that when i watch tv episodes it will freeze half way through the second episode
