Well, I've been trying to get movie playback working on my wii. So far, the results have been... underwhelming. geexbox can find the external HDD just fine, but it can only play a minority of videos. Sometimes it will load a video, but there will be no sound and a choppy framerate as it struggles to play it. MPlayer CE has (a little) more success with playback. It recognizes my HDD only if its connected to the top USB port (the one USB loaders don't use). It will randomly crash, though, because it likes to unmount my HDD pretty frequently. Sometimes I can't even get to the folder the movie is in before CE has already unmounted it. Some questions: Are there any other players worth considering? Would I have more success with MPlayer if I formatted my HDD to FAT32 instead of NTFS? I had considered doing that originally but I had a couple of files that were over 4G, and blu-ray rips are becoming more popular. What about playing the movies from an SD card? How big of an SD will still work? I forget the deal with SDHC and wii. Any other advice also welcome. Thanks!
