    WiiMC v1.3.2



    WiiMC (Wii Media Center) is an open source media player for the Nintendo Wii. Features include:
    • Attractive libwiigui-based interface, designed with the Wii in mind
    • Most essential difference from MPlayer CE and the like: completely GUI based, fiddling .conf files should never be necessary (except for on-line media)
    • Picture viewer
    • Music player
    • FAT32/NTFS from SD and USB 2.0 (FAT32 recommended)
    • Network playback via SMB, HTTP, and FTP
    • Ability to play virtually any video or audio format
    • DVD playback, with DVD menu support
    • Online media support, including SHOUTcast, YouTube, and Navi-X
    • SD, USB 2.0, SMB, HTTP, and FTP support
    • Attractive libwiigui-based interface, designed with the Wii in mind
    • Multi-language support: Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Dutch, English, Estonian, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Romanian, Russian, Spanish

    WiiMC 1.2.2 changelog



    -------------------------------------------------------

    WiiMC and the Channel Installer
    WiiMC runs from IOS58 and HBC 1.0.8 (recommended), if HBC is not using IOS58 to run then you will have problems. If you have HBC 1.0.7 then update it. The channel installer will install a forwarder to your Wii menu, this is not a full channel, you will still need WiiMC in the apps folder of your Wii SD card. You do not need to update the channel if a previous version already works. The WiiMC channel gets updated to improve compatibility with USB devices, so if your USB device is compatible then no reason to update.

    IOS58
    IOS58 Installer (if you need it)
    Use the IOS58 installer to install IOS58 if you do not have it installed all ready. You will then need to reinstall the Homebrew channel. If the IOS58 installer does not work for you then use DOP-Mii to install it (with no patches) or use NUSD to download it, you will be looking to install IOS58 v6176. You can also look HERE to download the wad.


    USB LAN Adapter
    USB LAN Adapter is supported and will work well with IOS58, since IOS58 will access USB 2.0 speeds on both USB ports. You can have a USB HDD plugged into USB port 0, and a USB LAN Adapter plugged into USB port 1.

    DVD support
    If your Wii is not capable of reading burned DVD's or retail movie DVD's, you can remove the DVD icon from the WiiMC tool bar. Go in to the settings and select DVD, now you can disable DVD support, which will remove the DVD icon from the WiiMC main menu.

    Any wads found in this post (or thread) are to be at your risk, make sure you have proper brick recovery in place before installing wads.

    Visit my poll here - what media player do you use

    --------------------------------

    Make sure to select the icon in the upper left corner that corresponds to the type of file you want to play. Example - if you want to play a movie then select the movie icon. WiiMC will only recognize the file formats associated with which icon you have selected. Selecting the movie icon will only recognize movie files, etc....

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    ok, I've been playing around with this. I have tested with my SD card, you are free to experiment with a USB device, if that's what you use.

    1. First I created a folder on the root of my SD card called "media". In that folder I created subfolders called pictures, video, music. Do this first, make sure to put something in the folder you will be using, and add the media folder to the root of your SD card.
    2. Next I went into settings, and there you can select one of those forms of media. I will use video as an example.
    3. In settings select video, then select video folder. Now type sd1:/media/video, select ok.
    4. Now select the video icon at the top left of the screen and you should see what you put in the video folder on the SD card.
    5. Do this with the other folders too, music, pictures.

    wii setup screen

    Display Name ____ Movies
    Share IP ________ 192.168.1.1
    Share Name______ Movies
    Username____Mungali08
    Password_____PasSW0rd

    everything is case sensitive.
    i did not turn any passwords off, i just use my logon name and password and that works fine.
    I also did not have the shared folder anywhere special it's on an external hdd eg //g/Movies
    It seems to like the main folder shared not just the whole hdd. It will find the subfolders.
    Hope this helps.
    Mac users - thanks wowsers

    I like the interface a little better than Mplayer. Has a nice menu as well as "in movie menu".

    Better volume options for sure.

    Allows for pictures and music too which is a nice feature for some people.

    Only used it for about ten minutes or so but it seems nice so far.

    I am having a problem loading my DVD+R Data DvDs... It says in valid disc. DO you think that is because it is a +R? I havent tried a -R Disc.

    Mplayer CE didn't work before with loading of DVD+R media so I figured I would try WIIMC. I never tried a burned game. I use WBFS and a USB for my backups. I found out I didn't have IOS 202 installed, but after installing it that made no difference.... I never heard anything good about using DVD+R DVDs....

    Well if you have the d3-2 drive it won't work from any burned media.

    If not, try - R

    just finished installing cios, running wiimc right now. Gotta say...effing great. I like it way better than mplayer. Plus the fact that you can actually use the dvd menus is awesome. clerks 2 is about twenty minutes in right now. Had to pause it one because the sound was off but that seemed to fix it. so far so good.
