    I'm somewhat new to CustomizeMii, does anyone know if it would be possible to create a channel from which I can play a specific video file? (Mp4, to be exact). I'd have no trouble converting it to any other format, I just want to know if this was even possible.

    If there's an option to send arguments to a dol you open, i.e. not an embedded dol, a forwarder, you could look how a media player expects an argument that specifies a file location to open. Put that file on the sd card, point to the media player dol, and the arguments to the file location. There's a media player (relatively) recently updated, not sure if it has mp4 support - supersonic's wiimc+ - but if that doesn't, another one will.
    It's possibe if you can send arguments to a dol using customizemii, although there might be other, simpler ways.
    And that's quite a cool idea - for an ankle biter wanting to watch the same thing over and over?

    Hey sorry I'm really late in response but it went pretty well! I just put some cosmetic changes to WiiMC and had it set to open the file that contained only the episode. From there, you just click it.

    Did you put cosmetic changes to the channel animation or in the WiiMC itself? That sounds cool.

    WiiMC itself. I'm currently trying to change the channel intro music to the music of the episode's title card lol.
