    Question Mplayer

    Hey, im wanting to install mplayer but am finding it more difficult and dangerous than i thought. My wii is pretty new and came with 4.1u system firmware. I read that in order to get this software working i needed to install usb2.0 cios from Mplayer Team and in order to be succesful i have to install something called Trucha Bug to play dvd's. I had to run bootmii ios and cant risk getting bricked. I'm wondering if this is dangerous process and if someone knows anything about installing Mplayer or perhaps a guide?

    You said your wii has 4.1 system menu, but then you stated you used messie's guide to hack a 4.2, are you sure you used the correct guide?

    OK, just making sure you not use the wrong guide, because that may cause trouble on your end.

    If you followed messie's guide then you should have Trucha Bug installed already. Then all you need to install is the IOS202. the cIOS usb 2.0 is an older version. But if you installed that already then use it. A newer version of the IOS202 from Hermes cIOS installer v5 is much better. When you feel safer, try installing that IOS202, you will see a considerable speed difference with the newer IOS202.

    There is no danger to installing cIOS or using Mplayer.

    the cIOS usb 2.0 installer will install IOS202 v2. You probably installed IOS202 v4 with messie's guide, so that will work with MPlayer. Another thing, your Wii may have one of them new D3-2 dvd drives that cannot read anything other than a retail Wii disc. Is your Wii really new?
