I got the same issue an gave up on it. A DVD player works just as well.
hi, i have a problem playing dvd movies on mplayer ce. it starts loading, but it just freezes. any help?
my wii is USA 4.2 and is LU30
Mplayer CE plays the divx, xvid, mp4 and all the other video formats that a DVD player cannot, that's what I use MPlayer for, as Baboo says - a DVD player plays DVD discs very well.
Did you install the custom IOS USB2 with it?
DVD and USB 2.0 Support
To read DVDs and to read external drives at USB 2.0 speeds you will need the custom cIOS USB2 modified by the Mplayer CE team which can be found herehttp://mplayer-ce.googlecode.com/fil..._Installer.rar. For more help installing this cIOS see the MPlayer CE wiki.
Install the IOS202 from Hermes cIOS installer v5, that is newer and much better that cIOS usb2, cIOS usb2 installs from the Hermes v2 installer.
Please do not install IOS222,223,224 from that hermes v5 installer, to many bugs with them unless you use uLoader.
