    I have a 4.2U softmodded wii. It's got a modchip too, the softmodding's more recent.
    I have all the softmod stuff running fine, DVDX installed through hackmii, Neogamma runs, etc.

    But I can't for the life of me get mPlayer to run any DVD's. Once I start it up and press play DVD, it says mounting dvd then just stops working.
    When I try to use the libdi installer I get error -2011 no matter what ios I try to use, but since DVDX worked I was hoping I wouldn't need that.

    I haven't really been able to figure out the trucha bug restorer, it always gives me errors. Could it have something to do with that?

    Does anyone have any ideas on what I can try differently? If I'm leaving out any info let me know, it's 1 AM and I'm exhausted.

    Thanks in advance!

    1. MPlayer is outdated, use WiiMC.
    2. Both MPlayer and WiiMC uses cIOS 202 for DVD playback.

    Here you can download both

    Does anyone have this same problem that I am having???....when I try to play DVD's on WiiMC it says "error invalid DVD" everytime and when I try it on MPlayer CE it just stops loading (just shows background of main screen of the app but nothing else). I am so frustrated and I have tried this bajillions of times already and I have ios 202 installed and the other cIOS installers needed to make this app work. And my Wii is 3.5 years old and is not a virgin.

    Does wii mc give you this message all the time or almost all of the time? Error; invalid dvd.

    Wouldn't recommend the wii for dvds. The buffer overflows and everything sucks. I heard that dvd players are dirt cheap now though, I found one for about 10$.
