    I see this info on on the wiki.

    Source: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/MPlayerWii
    Code:
    ÂÂÂÂ* Containers: AVI, WMV, MKV, OGM, MP3, FLV (Flash Video), MP4, M4V, QuickTime, 3GP
    ÂÂÂÂ* Video codecs: Xvid, DivX, Windows Media, MPEG 1/2, H.264
    ÂÂÂÂ* Audio codecs: MP1/2/3, Windows Media, AAC
    Any other limitations, such as resolution, bitrate, file size etc? Currently I am streaming over via SMB, which seems to work surprisingly well.

    Can I use the DVDRW with those containers ? Why ? Because after I am done with those, I would like to delete them and add other containers as many time as I want. Can I do that ? Or I still have to use the DVD-R ? I hope not. Thanks.

    I believe that is OK, as long as you have the DVDX lib installed (its a hidden channel).

    You can try using a DVD-RW
    If it doesn' work you can overwrite it anyways

    I personally think Geexbox is better, everything Mplayer wii can do, geexbox does in better quality.

    Though Mplayer libdvd is the best as it can play retail dvds.

    I just gave Geexbox a try.The interface is nice, but it is harder to setup. Looking at the configs you have to setup your connection if you want to stream via smb, upnp, etc..

    It takes longer to load up and is still based off of mplayer. So it reality, it looks no different as far as quality goes. I prefer the simplicity of Mplayerwii.

    Also just figured this out. Geexbox has no support for wifi. Another reason for me to just use Mplayerwii.

    Folder support for mplayer sucks hiney. If you're using a data disc, keeps all your files on the root. [​IMG]

    If wanna play videos with h.264 (on mp4 and mkv containers) you will need MplayerWii
    Geexbox will play but great slowdown. For Divx and Xvid files I had no problems.

    Geexbox runs over the wii linux, MplayerWii it's a direct port of MPlayer for the PowerPC processor, although if you need subtitles Geexbox as a better support, MPlayerWii only use idx/sub subtitles, and forget fullHD videos with h264.

    Does anyone know the speed difference between front SD and SD Gecko (in gc memory card port)?

    I presume it is somewhat slower, but I'm interested if anyone knows the speed of the ports [​IMG]

    I love both of them (geexbox and mplayerwii), but Geexbox seems to take longer to access/initialize usb drives while Mplayerwii does it in a flash.
    On the other hand, Mplayerwii doesn't handle subtitles while Geexbox does.
