    Dont play dvd's or dvd-r with the wii (it stesses out the dvd drive)

    To play avi file it cant be a HD file... res of the file can not be above 480p

    1. Format flash drive to fat32
    2. plug into wii
    3. launch wiimc
    4. it will say usb mass storage (or if you named the drive it will say the name)
    5. click and open the FD up and click on the file that you want to play...
    6. or if you want to get fancy (SMB share a folder from your computer and stream over the network)

    Alrighty.

    1. I formatted my thumb drive FAT32.
    2. Dragged my avi file (over 2 gb) over to thumb drive.
    3. Plugged it into the Wii (does it matter which slot?)...put it in top slot when Wii laying down.
    4. Turned on Wii
    5. Launch HBC.
    6. Launched WiiMC. (it always says there is an update everytime??) I update.
    7. Click on "up one level..." and I see all folders like wiimc, usb loader, etc, but no where do I see my usb mass storage.

    Update: Put the avi in a folder...getting desperate and trying everything I can think of.

    What am I doing wrong?

    I ended up using Mplayer CE and it worked. Too bad I've heard alot of better things about WiiMC over Mplayer CE. Oh well. Thanks for your help Emuhack.

    I finally got the IOS58 running and WiiMC channel forwarder going. Thanks for the help guys.

    The new issue is in the jumpy frame rates when running a large AVI file (DVD Rip) in WiiMC. I checked the playback on the PC and everything is fiine, I am not sure if it is the format or the size of the file that WiiMC is trying to play. Is anyone else having this issue?

    merged

    I am running it through a 16 GB SDHC and place a folder called MOVIES in the root of the card. When WiiMC boots, it sees SD Card and then I can select through the menu to the MOVIES folder. I am not sure if this helps but I know that when I just placed the movies in the SD card without a directory, it didnt' find them.

    I like this media player! Finally got it working with my SMB share too.

    Three things,
    1. Playing an ISO file isn't smooth. Buffers all the time. I assume this is because the ISO quality is too large or my wireless router is sub par for streaming that type of file. Would changing the router (like to a 'N') resolve that or is there something more?

    2. You can't save/manage multiple play lists can you? If not, and it's possible, I'd like to see that in the next release.

    3. I tried putting an ISO file on a USB HD (with 2 partitions, WFBS & FAT32). I can see the USB drive but not the ISO file? It's in a separate folder under the root directory. What's weird is I can see picture files on that drive. What gives?

    Otherwise, it does everything I would expect it to and better than MPlayer. Thanks!

    I'm using a 40 gb hd with divx movies loaded from my computer and it works great it sets up its own menu and after wattching a movie it checks it off so you know which one you watch.You can also play dvds on dvd+r and dvd_r on the disc drive .I like this app.

    I tried searching for it but cant seem to find the answer am looking for.

    i cant seem to load wiimc from my FAT32 HDD using a wii forwarder, installed IOS58, used channel installer 1.6 to install the wiimc and got wiimc version 1.1, fat32 is active, even reinstalled homebrew channel. i can load it from the HBC but i dont want the kids to have to go to HBC to load wiimc, in case they mess with the other files.

    am i missing something or do i need to buy SD card for the forwarder to work.

    i am on 4.2E btw.

    Did you rename the wiimc folder to something else? That would cause it. Make sure it is set up like this:
    USB:\apps\wiimc\boot.dol
