    since updating to 4.2E i can't get dvd's to play and can't get avi's to play from

    any source, am looking for an alternative (to M PLAYER CE) so I can finish watching 24 season 7

    I usually watch from my 4gig usb drive but sometimes put avi files on the ntfs partition of my HDD

    Which I also use to run games from (wbfs partition) with wiiFlow.

    The M player I'm using is the CE version and it just locks up when I try to load AVI's and doesnt let the dvd mount..

    Thanks for any tips, john

    install the mPlayer CE USB 2.0 cIOS and then you can play DVDs with it on 4.2.

    GeexBox would be your best alternative...

    Honestly, MPlayer_CE is your best bet. I'm a geexbox convert myself, and Mplayer_CE offers far more. Something is obviously wrong with your setup, perhaps try the above post, or reinstalling&configuring the program.

    I'm sure it's the USB2.0 Cios I need, but now my head is a little mashed on how to install the hermes cIOS will try though & report back


    {Edit}

    I went back to start installing stuff, the HBC flashed up a message saying there was an available update, so I gave it a go

    then installed new HBC, installed DVDX but never did the boot one.

    tried a dvd and bingo, tried my HDD film folder and BINGO again, all working

    SO I End up with 4.2e with wiiflow, HBC with Mplayer CE and all works fine and dandy, great stuff.

    am going to put a bit of money to one side and donate appropiately.


    ALSO got the forwarder to work now, all fine except when I exit - get a slow green screen then 30 seconds later wii restarts... more research to be done!

    I think MPlayerCE for FAT32 and GeexBox for NTFS...

    ...but you stated it in a way, as if it was a general rule...

    Yeah, I realized that after your indication [​IMG] As I said before that was what I meant to say.

    Still, both player are very good and it is just a matter of preference and as far as I know there is also a GUI for the MPlayerCE in the works, so both player will eventually be replaced by the new one I guess or that`s at least how I think about the mediaplayer-situation [​IMG]
