    since DVDx and MPlayer seem to have been left behind and forgotten, I wonder if anybody still uses the wii as a DVD player and what apps they use.

    you can do it with WiiMC, although newer wii just cant read burned disks at all (or dvds), and no amount of hacking will change that. But practical? The wii was never really practical for playing dvds, you'd be better off going out and buying a cheap dvd player.

    DVDx has been abandoned because of HW_AHBPROT and Mplayer_ce is active

    Use WiiMC. I personally don't like MPlayer_CE, but that's just me. I feel that WiiMC has better speed and its UI is much cleaner.
