    i was wondering if its possible to extract the video footage (game cinematics) form the wii image using trucha.
    if it is possible, is it then possible to watch it on the computer? would i need a special video player or rename the files?

    thanks

    (not sure if this has been answered before, but couldnt find anything on it)

    Well it's all up to the game designers, so it's different for every game. Open the ISO with trucha and have a look around. I know Guitar Hero uses bink video (.bik files) which are pretty common for video games.

    like he said... all depends

    SSBB has THP files which can be played on the computer but a lot of games arent that simple

    so SSBB THP files can be played on any media player? (Windows media player?).

    what about Zelda Twilight princess?

    i want the video footage from both Zelda and SSBB.

    thanks for the help so far!

    I believe Zelda uses the game engine..... I don't remember there being videos in the game.

    Can someone rip and post the SSBB videos?

    And will they work in VLC?

    thanks for all the help. *watches SSBB vids on the computer*.

    has anyone figured out how to convert these with the sound synch perfectly?

    Regarding sync I would have a look at the options of your media player (even if you have to do something insane like force decoding of raw streams (i.e. after it is loaded and before it is sent to the graphics card) as it is probably far easier than hacking the splitter/codec.

    @SupraGoblin text on the wii is much like rom hacking for every other platform going. In the thread I linked I did some work for prince of persia (the text was a tweak on unicode) and I am hearing it is not much different for other games.

    Anyone know how? And will it come with audio or the audio is in a different location?
