    Any one know of a usb video player for the Wii that shows thumbnails or movie covers?

    I like how easy it is for my kids to find the game they want to play using Configurable USB Loader. And with out scratching up my disks! I have been Googling for hours and cant find anything like it for movies. I want to see the movie covers or choose a thumbnail from some point within the movie to be displayed in the list of movies. All my games are on my NTFS 1.5 TB usb drive and are working great with Configurable USB Loader. I can play most of my movies from this HDD using the players in the home brew channel but my kids are only 5 years old have a hard time finding the movie they want to see because they cant read. I saw thumbnails on the photo viewer app/channel that came with my wii but I don’t want to convert my entire kids collection to some other format. And I read that it only plays short movies and I don’t know if it works with the usb HDD. Can I make a channel that forwards to a movie in a home brew movie player? There just kids cartoons and they don’t care about blue ray quality or surround sound.

    I will try posting a request for this in the forums at the players websights. I hope the program designers agree with my need for this upgrade. After all the GUI (graphical user interface) of Configurable USB Loader is great and easy to use.
