same thing was happening to me - uninstall the forwarder you are using now via wad manager and install this one. I got that from the GBATemp site and it works awesome!

First post here.
I have a Black Wii with 4.2, which I've soft-modded with the wiihack guide. Got the HBC, priiloader, WAD Installer 1.4, etc etc. all to see if I can use the Wii as a DVD player (original ones, not copies).
I've tried with several MPlayer versions, and did not manage to play DVDs (it freezes while mounting). I believe it must be this DVDx v2 / DVDx v1 thing.
So I'm trying now to follow this guide, but the first download (DVDx Installer - hackmii installer beta2) is strange, it only has 4 files: CREDITS, LICENCE, README and installer.elf. You said to put into the apps folder, but does'n it need a boot.dol or something to be properly launched by the HBC?
Need help here. I think it's not a n00b request, it's just that it looks like something is missing from the first post, or it could be better explained...

I've installed the MPlayerCE with cIOS, now it's stuck on "Loading MPlayer 0.75...", I don't even get the menu...
Also, I've tried first to install into 202, got a -1017 error, then I switched to 249 and it was OK. Did I screwed something, or it's OK?

Yes, I've tried MPlayer and a couple of others and it won't load or play any DVD's.

Ok, tried the MPlayerCE 0-761 b1 7/12 from the mplayer-ce devel team at google code, no go.
I had to launch again the cIOS222 app to restore the IOS202 and IOS222, and it's back to the start: I can see the menu, but it does not play DVDs.
I guess I just have to sit and wait for the MPlayer people to launch a version that uses DVDx v2. Looks like the black Wii hardware is still winning, but I'm sure in a couple of months we are able to play DVD movies from them...

i am wondering i just installed mplaye 0.75, using fowarder, and installed the cIOS.
before i had only installed mplayer and fowarder but it continued to crash from the menu, so i taught it was a playback issue so installed the cIOS but now it won't even load. I get loading v.0.75 any ideas?
