    WiiMC problems

    Most of the videos on my HDD are 480p MKV, which were playing fine. I updated WiiMC to 1.0.5, and had to downgrade because I hadn't updated my IOS. After that, whenever I played a file, the video was either slightly lagging behind the audio, or the video was completely unwatchable, only showing still images, changing every 30-60 seconds. The audio is perfect, though. I then updated my IOS and WiiMC, but it has the same problem.

    I don't think it's the video files, as the same ones that worked fine before are laggy now. Is it just my WiiMC settings, or another issue?

    I'm sure one of the 102 users who viewed this post knows what's going on. Is it the player or the video files that's causing the problem?

    "Updated" to 1.0.5????? Um, it's up to 1.0.8; did you try that? As a work in progress there are bugs, bug fixes, refinements, and advancements. Changelog can be viewed on this page...

    WiiMC 1.0.5 has bugs in it, do not use that version. 1.0.7 was released 2 days ago, and today 1.0.8 was released to take care of any bugs in the 1.0.7, IOS 58 is needed for 1.0.7 and up.

    Now I have a new set of problems :/ I updated to .8 and got code dump. I installed IOS58, and it worked, but the video files still didn't. I checked some other ones and they worked fine. I think the ones that didn't work are MKV and the good ones were AVI, but I'm not totally sure. I went to check the file extensions, but Wiimc crashed right after it opened. This happened twice, then it wouldn't let me open the folder where the files are, and crashed again.

    Last I knew, WiiMC played MKV files up to 720x480p --- nothing larger. IDK what to tell you, read the wiki I linked earlier on supported formats/limitations. IDK why you keep shorthanding revisions, either --- is .8 AKA 1.0.8 in your way of thinking?

    The wiki doesn't really have any troubleshooting suggestions. I suppose I'll try reinstalling WiiMC. And I typed .8 because I was busy, and it's alot faster than 1.0.8, and I assumed everyone would know what I was talking about.

    It does say if 720p (as opposed to 720x480p) it's not supported --- too much processing power required for the Wii. The larger the resolution, the more your Wii is gonna choke. Your terminology, while I understand your choice, can be confusing nonetheless.

    Sorry about that. Anyway, I was sure to get the 480p standard definition videos, so I don't think that's the problem. Also, that wouldn't explain why the program itself crashes when I open it from the HBC.

    Edit: I deleted it, and installed 1.0.6 from HB Browser, and it worked great. The audio and video can sometimes be slightly off, but skipping forward then backward fixes it. I updated to 1.0.8, and again it crashes every time I open the program. I guess I'll just stick with 1.0.6. I have IOS58 also, so that's not the problem.
