    Dual-Layer and Mplayer-ce

    I have installed mplayer-ce .77 and cIOS 202.

    It seems that mplayer does not innately read dual layer, store bought dvd's. I can play single layer, but not dual layer.

    Are there any solutions/work arounds for this?

    Hmm... Hermes in terms of games works with dual layered media, as does Wani's IOS 249 Rev 17 for games; have you tried the latter as well?

    I don't really buy dvd's but surely anything that comes on a dual layer would be either hi-def or b/ray because a normal dvd fits on 4.7 disc. And because the wii has no compatability with HD would this not be the cause of the disc not being read????
    Maybe someone else here knows

    most commercial DVD movies are DVD9 (dual layer, single sided).

    HD movies come on a BLu-Ray Disc, which is a completely different technology.

    there used to be 2 formats, HD-DVD and BluRay. HD-DVD was used by Microsoft in the Xbox360, the technology is now dead, HD movies are now on BluRay, as used in the PS3.

    DVD discs are simply not big enough to contain a HD movie
