    I recently downloaded GeeXbox to play a video off the USB drive I have plugged into the back of the Wii. I picked this one because it appeared to be the easiest one to set up. Anyways, I put it on the SD card, and put the video (.m4v file) on the USB drive. After starting up the movie, it stutters about every 5 seconds, making watching the movie doable, but rather irritating.

    I tried going through the options to see if there was a setting I could fix to make the movie play correctly, but can't figure out what the different options mean, and the settings I tried changing didn't work. I'm starting to think that I might be better off replacing it with a different program.

    That's where this topic comes in. What program do you guys personally use and would recommend to me for the best playback? I have no idea on the differences between them, and need a bit of help picking one out.

    VLC.

    It's so good, it bears repeating.

    VLC, VLC, VLC.

    ...Except the Wii doesn't have a version of VLC(unless you run Wii Linux?).

    WiiMC. It works rather nicely.

    WiiMC is the only mediaplayer for Wii still being developed. When you learn how to use WiiMC, then check out vlc-shares for WiiMC.

    Aside from the frequent random crashing, I recommend it; it supports a huge number of video and audio formats that other players can't match.
