    Question Play Movies from xternal

    Hi. I have a 250gig external hard drive with 2 partitions. I already use one to play wii backups with uloader. I was wondering it if is possible to put mp4 videos on the other partition and play them from the hard drive on the wii. So, is it?

    Not sure about mp4 as I've never tried them but the Wii will play avi without issues using Mplayer CE.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    mp4 works for me under GeexBox, havent tried under Mplayer yet though.
    And yes you can use the other partition to play the movies. I have a 1TB with wbfs, fat32, and NTFS. I hear that you have to use fat32 to play videos, but geexbox and the current version of Mplayer seems to play them from either, without any problems...
