Video via USB
I've done alot of searching, and just need a confirmation of the following:
1) Ripped Retail/VOB DVD's cannot be played back via a USB HD through apps like DVDx. Is this correct?
2) Since I have never seen any HBC app that can handle / play DIVX.... I'm assuming that Item #1 is true for DIVX as well?

dunno about vobs but Mplayer agentx mod plays xvid via usb very nicely
Sweet... Nothing fancy about it... but its very fuctional... I had to screw around with the WiiRemote to figure out all of the play functions... but it was just what I was looking for. Good quality and allows adjustments for 4:3 and 16:9 screens. Thanks
I have a USB Drive with two partitions on it. WBFS and FAT32
Now... Is there a way or utility that would allow me to access the USB Drive hooked up to my Wii from my PC? It would be nice to be able to manage files on either partition from my PC over the WiFi connection... ie.. copy xvid movies from my PC to the Wii's HD via the WiFi? The same with games... Using an app like WBFS Manager to handle games over the WiFi as well?
I 'm using the Windows SMB for all of my emulator packages. Where I have all of the roms stored on my PC. And the emulator packages access the roms via SMB from one of my PC's. That in its self is pretty sweet... where I can manage the games utilized by the emulators from windows. But to try something like that with a xvid or a wii game would be extremely slow... (I 'm guessing). Thats why just being able to manage the files (copy or delete) files to the USB Drive hooked directly to the Wii would be preferable.
You could check out MPlayer CE over at Wiibrew.org. I know that you can stream internet radio to the Wii thru SMB with MPlayer, don't know about the video though.
