I install the Mplayer v0.76. but when i tried to load it from homebrew. it is just hanging. showing the message . the mplayer is loading...
It did that to me the first time I tried to load it. I had to hard boot it and when I tried to load it again it worked. I don't know if the wii had to be restarted or what. Now it loads fine every time. Maybe that will work for you if you havn't already tried it. It seems to be faster at loading the menus, especially when you get to your list of movies, but when I try to quit the app it says an error has occured, spits code at me, and tries to reload with no success. I have to hard boot it to restart.
