    WiiMC's your best bet, but u have plenty of other options

    MPlayer CE
    GeeXBox
    MPlayer
    Dragon Media Player (think this one is only music though)

    edit: if u go for the WiiMC, stay away from the LAST release, get the second latest release (v1.04), u also need cIOS202 installed, but again, stay away from the latest cIOS202 installer for WiiMC, use the second latest one, or install the cIOS202 base 57 using NUSAD (from my signature) or using Hermes cIOS installer v5

    Thanks guys for the reply and for the warning but i was wondering is there any way to check which CIOS are installed on a wii? i installed a load of stuff when i added homebrew and the backup loader ect, so i just want to be careful i don`t know if reinstalling stuff again could brick the machine. If CIOS 202 has no relation to the backup loaders and ect then sorry for my newbness [​IMG]`and XFlak i will use the NUSAD thanks. [​IMG]

    Arikado's DOP_IOS can tell you what cios you have installed. Cios 202 does not work directly with usb loaders, however the latest cios used by WiiMC has a negative effect over external usb drives making them unaccessible for usb loaders as reported by most forum members.
