    Thanks for the tip, but I have dowload this and extracted the files directly to my memory card and it extracts as follows: MplayerCE with 3 file in apps folder no files then Mplayer Ce once more with loads of files, so do I need to remove one or more of the folders and place the file somewhere else.

    Cheers for your help,

    Stew

    find the folder called 'mplayer_ce', it has a lot of files in it....then copy that folder into the 'apps' folder on your sd card.

    Or in other words just get the files into this directory:
    X(X being the drive that your SD card represents):\apps\mplayer_ce\ then all the files go in there or to make it easier just copy the mplayer_ce folder to X:\apps\

    MPlayer CE also reads from SD/USB so you can plug your USB stick/HDD in and watch all your XViD movies with it.
    MPLayer CE also supports streaming of video over wifi using SMB shares.
    There is also a special USB2 cIOS that when installed is detected by MPlayer and used to give USB2 speeds to your Wii, this is optional though and only recommended if you have playback problems.

    Downloads

    DVDX Installer - copy to apps directory on your SD card and run via HBC

    MPlayer CE 0.7 - copy to apps directory and run via HBC or the forwarder channel.

    MPlayer CE Forwarder channel - (Preview) Install with wad manager, links to .dol on sd card so don't rename folder.

    MPlayer CE cIOS Installer - copy to apps directory and run via HBC, network connection required.

    MPlayer - AgentX Mod Channel - My favorite player, install with wad manager, no need for .dol on SD. This one has never let me down, plays xvid from my usb stick flawlessly

    This post will be kept up to date with the latest versions of all the apps and info.
    sorry but do i install all these files? im looking at using the streaming option???

    SMB shares.

    First make sure the folder on your PC is shared with the network. It will assign it a default name which you might want to change.

    Then..

    In the Mplayer CE folder on the SD card there'll be a smb.conf file.

    Code:
    #Max 5 samba shares (review menu.conf to add more samba browsing)
    #no ip or no share means samba disabled
    #It's important use quotes (") on shares with blank spaces, see example 2
    
    #Samba share1  (smb1:/)
    ip1=192.168.0.1
    share1=films
    user1=
    pass1=
    
    #Samba share2  (smb2:/)
    ip2=192.168.0.1
    share2="My movies"
    user2=
    pass2=
    Then it's just a matter of editing the details to match your PC configuration.

    Enter your PC Local IP, it'll not likely be 192.168.0.1 but something similar.
    Enter your Share Name, noting that separated wrods must be enclosed with quotes.

    Once you reinsert the SD card and launch Mplayer CE it will allow you to connect to the shares.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    I use the Mplayer via smb alot for streaming video... and for what it is worth as far as using smb... v.62 is far more robust than v.7. The new caching scheme leaves alot to be desired (yes.. I know about the "A" to skip the caching when FForwarding or FR). I have played with the settings up and down (mplayer.conf, routers, wifi encryption, OS's, etc) and I still see a freeze from time to time. With the exact same setup... v.62 never misses a beat. I have seen this on other peoples networks as well... and when they go back to v.62... all is well.

    Again... my concerns are with smb. The USB portion of v.7 works well.

    But Mplayer by any means is a "Must Have" application. They have done an outstanding job.
