WiiMC will play those formats. Are you up to date on wiimc?
I often use the WiiMC channel to watch videos from my hard drive but I have only ever been able to playback AVI files. When I try to play an MP4 file, the Wii will just crash.
Is there a way to fix this or is there some other homebrew application that can playback other video formats?
i have no problems playing those formats either. skellinator might have the answer to your problem.
Yes I am up to date. Before it crashes and restarts the screen goes black and quite a bit of white text appears.
Does that help a bit? I could try to see what some of it says if you think it's significant.
Alright so I tried updating the WiiMC app through the Homebrew Browser rather than manually and now it's updated.
Now most MP4 files playback, but some that are high quality such as 720p either run slow or don't start at all. Is there a way to improve this?
