Yes, u can play various media file in wii
yes, u can play a numerous number of media file format in Wii. I have just learnt it too. I have tried both Mplayer (http://www.wiihacks.com/homebrew-app...r-ce-r592.html) and Geexbox (http://www.wiihacks.com/wiihacks-new...-quextion.html) . I prefer GeexBox better. I can even play media file from my USB HDD.

I have been clicking a reading a hell of a lot on this site and managed to somehow softmod my wii and even got as far as getting cod black ops working.
Despite this, i still dont have a clear understanding of what it was i was installing.
As far as i know this is my understanding (please correct accordingly):
HBC (home brew channel) allows me to run apps
WAD - apps that do stuff
WAD manager which installs wads as channels
CIOS - modified version of the wii software
loaders - e.g. uloader that start games
forwarders - shortcuts to apps stored on sd cards
Its the versions and how they fit in to the bigger picture that i dont fully get.
eg. i needed cios 249 rev 59 (i think thats right) to get COD to work.
SO i grabbed the wad and installed it. This wouldnt work in uloader but did in neogamma.
Is what i have summised from wiihacks correct or should i fetch my coat?
