    I have recently updated my Wii using xzxero's Modify Any Wii Guide. I have installed 4.2U firmware, HBC 1.0.6. and DVDx v2 from HackMii Installer.

    My question is what applications can I use to play DVDs from my Wii through HBC? I have tried MPlayer CE v.75 and it freezes while trying to mount the DVD. Are there any other DVD players that you can suggest? Also....any ideas on why MPlayer CE is not working for me?

    I think there are some newer wiis now that have a different disk drive that make dvd playback impossible.

    I believe only Mplayer CE has DVD playback. Every DVD you've tried freezes when trying to mount?

    it's cause 4.2 deletes the old DVDx and mplayerCE doesn't support DVDx v2 yet so if you have pre/priiloader and the [Disable HAXX,DVDX,RZDx Checks] enabled you can install the old version of DVDx from the old hackmii installer and have both version 1 and 2 on the wii at the same time that's what i've done

    The new MPlayerCE NEEDS cios202
    MplayerCE no longer uses DVDx as it bypasses the need for using dvdx at all by using it own custom IOS CIOS202 and reads discs at full speed now and is more compatible with most filetypes.

    if ios 202 reads disc at full speed, why is it that nobody has put 2 and 2 together and made full speed work for backups??? Now thats something that should be worked with.

    ya lol. In that theory then someone could just dip their cios202 give them credit and put it in cioscorp and provide a seperate wad for those who use back-up loaders. Then make them load the dipped cios202
