    Good luck on the wait. Open source projects don't usually steal source from other companies. Which is why it uses Xvid and not DivX. Unless someone codes an open source Real Player Codec and it is seen by the mplayer team to not be an infringement on copyright laws then you might wanna find a newer container to use. There are lots of converters for RMVB to AVI or MPEG.

    I think he's trying to point out that since XBMC is MPlayer based, the Wii version should have the same abilities. I know for MPlayer Windows and Linux it's just a matter of having the right dll's/libraries for Real video playback.

    Media Player Classic has RealMedia and Quicktime support, so the only reason I could see for Mplayer not having it is that they're both horrible container formats.

    they are different apps. Mplayer is a linux app, media player classic is a windows app. They are not one in the same at all

    anyway, the Wii port is still on early stage and the number of supported format will probably increase

    I know they're seperate applications.... I have both installed on my Windows based laptop...


    My point was that if one open source application can add support for a proprietary codec, others can do the same.

    Pretty much nailed it for me.

    The last thing I care about support for is Quicktime/Real, lord knows why anyone would even be using either anymore.

    App is very stable and nice, it plays my test mkv videos at original speed. one drawback though, the video quality is not good as mfe. Compression artifacts especially on non detailed parts of the video quite easily seen. Maybe a brightness issue. Now the stability and because of being direct port of mplayer this app promise a lot more than the other players available (or not yet available like wiimiidia)

    My H264 file looks good but the video is a bit slow so the audio get ahead.

    But a promising app.

    Cool! I have really wanted to watch the movies I download on the TV screen rather than on my computer. I plan to try it when I get off my lazy butt.
