    Just been checking the wiibrew wiki ..

    I've been using Geexbox for quite some time now with great results .. It seems to play anything I throw at it (mainly scene releases).
    Using 0.3 cos 0.4 is known to cause probs reading memory cards .. I suffered myself.

    Anyway, noticed there's now MplayerWii and Wii MFE. Are any of these good enough to sway me from my trusted Geexbox ? Only load from USB, not DVD.

    Cheers,

    Sorry if I posted in wrong section.

    Your answer makes me believe it's worth a d/l. Going from the wiki page you can also FF/REW, which Geexbox doesn't see, to do ...

    So mplayer ce redas your NTFS/Ext2/Ext3/ReiserFS formatted drives better than GeexBox? Cool, please send me your mplayer_ce version because mine only reads FAT drives and geexBox reads all the other Filesystems for me.

    Nice replies to MPlayer CE, but to your question, no doesn't support Linux file systems like GeeXbox, hopefully once BootMii comes out that will change [​IMG]

    Mplayer shouldn't be compared to each media apps to much, MplayerCE is a fork of MPlayer based on mplayerwii & GeeXbox, the only issue is un-supported file system types, but their are many video codecs "hard" which GeeXbox can't handle, and MPlayerCE can, it's give or take..Some are hard to improve, even kaming hard codecs decode to low can cause others to not work, and working along side the wiis low power.

    It's good SMB is working well for people in here, it's bound to not work properly for some, different setups cause different stability.

    I found the exact opposite to be true in my experience. Movie works in geexbox - CRASHES THE SYSTEM on mplayer. Movie works fine on geexbox - only audio and a completely jumbled image on mplayer... and so on.

    MplayerCE is does not have the compadability as the normal mplayer. I still use mplayer and can play any video file i throw at it and does usb just fine as well.
