Hiyaall

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

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...


Wrong, mplayer supports both formats
I just meant, that those are the particular players I like to use with the corresponding formate...

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

Yeah, I realized that after your indication

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
