    MMM always loads IOS58 as default.
    You need IOS58 to run WiiMC.
    Your syscheck is fine.
    Try this WiiMC beta version and see if that helps the dvd freezing. -->wiimc-1006-beta.rar

    Thanks for looking at the latest syscheck. So, even with the wiimc beta I still can't get dvd's to work. That's alright though, everything else works wonderfully. Going to enjoy browsing the forums and learning more as i go.

    Thanks again

    My Wii takes forever to load a dvd with wiimc. I try and click play and it will take so long I think its not working. Go to the bathroom and come back and its working. Mplayer ce loads them a little faster, but still takes long.
    They didn't use to that until homebrew was updated to use ios 58, I think.

    I just put all the kids movies on my external hdd. Easier for them to play that way anyway.

    playerkp420, do you notice dvd menu buttons highlight when you scroll over them? I cant even get recognition that the pointer is over a dvd menu item?


    Also, is there a program to send video files/files to the wii over the network? Would be nice not to have to keep moving the hard drive back and forth.

    thanks guys

    Yeah you can stream videos with WiiMC.

    SMB Sharing
    1. On your Computer, right click a folder and select Properties. Under the Sharing tab, Check "Share this folder"
    2. On your Wii, Launch WiiMC and Go to "Settings" then "Network".
    3. Enter the details from your PC. IP being your computer's IP and the Username and Password is your login info on your PC. If you don't know your username, just press the Start Menu and the name should be on the top of it. If you've got no password, leave it blank.

    Thats very useful, used to do that with ps3 media server. On the same note, can one just send the entire file over the network and avoid streaming issues altogether, in case the bit rate is too high for the network? Thanks again

    So, two questions if you guys don't mind me using this thread still.

    1. FTP is far slower than what I've tested for transfers over my wireless G network(only got ~150kB/s). Has anyone tested speeds using the Wii usb lan adapter, or is FTP a waste of time for transfering video content on the Wii?

    2. I created Emulated NAND on my USB drive. Is it ok to savegames/extract savegames to emulated nand using both 'Usb loader gx' and 'Wiiflow.' I.e. do they save to the same location in the same format?

    As always, thank you

    Isn't it possible that the wii simply doesn't support DVD playback?

    I know he said it was used, but if it was only slightly used... It may be one of the newer ones that don't have DVD playback.

    I don't know much, but I know my Wii that I bought this week tells me that DVD playback is not available in the WiiMC options. I did some reading and apparently new Wii's don't support DVD playback or GC playback. I'm not sure if the softmod is supposed to override this though, mine didn't seem to.
