    If you can load dvd's without error from neogamma, you should be able to play movie from dvd media. Just use mplayer ce from HBC.

    Ok sounds good thanks! I haven't got that far yet but I am assuming I can access m player from hbc by going to the apps icon?

    I want m player as a channel also.......Is this fairly easy?

    Thanks!

    Install the wad with wadmanager, extract the app folder to your sd-card
    It should look something like this.
    sd:\wad\mplayer-ce-forwarder.wad
    sd:\apps\mplayer-ce\boot.dol

    the cios you probably don't need. It is for usb2, if you have issues playing from usb you could try it.

    Sorry to hijack but I try to enable dvd playback on my Wii.

    I have mplayer ce and mplayer tt. DVD playback doesn't work on both of them. I installed cIOS (USB20 - mplayer-ce - Configuring your Wii with USB 2.0 support. - Project Hosting on Google Code) but now mplayer ce freeze at "loading mplayer ce v0.76" and mplayer tt doesn't play dvd..

    How did you get it to work ?

    Some modchips and the new d3-2 drive can prevent dvd play back. It should not affect mplayer loading, so reinstall it, or reinstall its cios.
