    Soon enough. I know @brienj is showing interest, and I've got a media player as a stretch goal for another project. It might not be near, but something like that isn't far off.
    In the meantime, you can always watch stuff using the Internet Browser.

    Speaking of Internet Browser, I can already open web links in the Internet Browser, including for example, an .mp4 link, from an rpx app. I may start my project using this method to launch the media links, until I can get a good media player coded.

    If anyone wants to try out the Browser Test app, here is a link -
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/lfbst3k936jqy3a/Browser_Test.7z

    This is an installable channel on your sysNAND or USB, but I advise only installing to USB to be safe. It of course can only be installed or launched if you have sig patching enabled.

    Just run Mocha from HBL at it will patch your system. There are more complex methods, like using CBHC, but I personally only use Mocha, which I launch with Haxchi.

    If you use Unity, you can create a App that play MP4 Videos (H264 Encoded).

    Yeah, this is true, however, the legality of sharing that app would be in question, because you would be breaking an NDA, and if you didn't sign an NDA and obtained Unity for Wii U that means you illegally downloaded it.

    You have to install the files with wupinstaller, but like I said before, it will only work with sig patching. There are plenty of threads about this.

    You have to put the files in the install folder on the SD card.

    I downloaded to make sure it was proper, and it is. Are you sure you have sig patching and are using latest wupinstaller? If you are, then I don't know why it won't work for you.

    I just downloaded this and managed to install it with zero issues you are 100% doing something wrong at your end. And I have a question for you @brienj are you being serious Rick fucking Astley lol.

    I'd suspect he's got y-mod when he's not supposed to or vice versa. afaik you do need y-mod for that sort of folder structure.
