    I would load up MPlayer it would give me two opt:

    Boot From SD
    Boot from USB

    Then later I dump a avi. fi8le in my USB to test something and it play but it show only sound with a black screen.

    You need to have DVDX installed in your Wii but I never tried this app so I wouldn't know exactly.

    I can't play dvd's either, I have DVDX installed, and Mplayer gives me two "play DVD" options. Both just freeze the system.

    Any ideas?

    Theres only 1 version of Mplayer that plays DVDs.

    The Mplayer version that you downloaded does not support DVDs.

    You want MplayerDVD I believe, though a search might make you find it.

    Google " Wii play dvd homebrew "

    Excluding the DVD support, has MPlayer become better than GeeXboX in terms of video quality?
