    August 12th, 2008 by Erant

    As you all know, I’ve been working on libdi (or the DVD Access library) for a while now. We had some problems getting it out to release because of the difficulties we encountered while writing the second part of this topic. The DVDX installer instead will install a small, hidden, channel on your Wii that allows you to read DVDs on an unmodified system. It is not an installer for a patched IOS. You may however need one, depending on your system.

    Usage of this package is fairly simple. Run the installer.dol found in the package, follow the onscreen instructions, and you’re done.

    Once you’ve done that, you can enjoy the splendor of mplayer. That what started out as a simple proof of concept has rapidly turned into a full-featured media player, under the nourishing hands of dhewg. The main aim of the mplayer project was to get DVDVideo going, but it also supports reading video files off the SD card. (Experimental).

    A patch for Wii64, the N64 emulator for the Wii, will also be available shortly. This patch will allow you to read games off a DVD.

    Yeah I installed it in like 3 seconds it was so easy. Just one thing though, the audio is a little low, I'm not sure if its my TV or not, but I don't think so. Maybe that will be fixed in the next update.

    I kind of have no use for this. Well, upstairs... I have a DVD build into the TV, but it's nice for the family room! Great job! I'm getting up my lazy ass and trying this.

    It works like a charm. Its a shame you can't actually browse menus and you have to select the chapters to play, but at least I don't have to switch between my 360 and my Wii for watching DVDs.

    Heh, I thought about this earlier today, thinking it was about time they release the DVD library.

    The Wii64 patch sounds interesting, but will it include Wiimote support? The build I have from the homebrew channel still requires a GameCube controller.
