    I want to read divx videos from my data DVD discs. So I load rodries' MPlayerWii and choose Play files from DVD. It attempts to read the DVD, but it just shows an empty path.

    Normally if you don't have a Modchip, you have to install DVDx. But I have a Wiikey and I remember reading somewhere that I have to install something else in order for it to work.

    So what do I have to install? FYI, never installed a cIOS or similar before on my 3.2E Wii.

    Spacejump, install in this order.......
    DVDX
    LIBDI
    PATCHMII
    (install patchmii, not normal ok) (ONLY need DVDX, but it's better to have libdi, patchmii aswell)

    then try.........

    BTW, it probably can't find the path if your using +RW etc.... use -R its good stuff, i don't use it but i test it......i have my own dvd data recorder/player. (special PC drive style)

    Get back to me when you do this spacejump, also hope you can manage that dol forwarder i requested, top man!

    What are libdi and patchmii?

    And are you sure a Wii with modchip needs DVDx?

    step 1) Install DVDX
    If you do NOT have a modchip, install DVDX (Normal Install)

    If you have a Modchip (DVDX) doing a PatchMii Install (not a Normal Install) IT SAYS ON THE DISCLAIMER

    When I choose DVDX Patchmii install, it tells me I first need to install Patchmii. Is this the right one?

    Installed them and it works, thanks [​IMG]

    So basically libdi is DVDx, just another name, right?

    Why? I just checked and the libdi you linked and the DVDx I downloaded through Homebrew Browser are the same applications.

    Funny dialog...let's stop it and ask questions too [​IMG]

    -What can you play from the DVDs? Only divx-files? Or all the files that MPlayer supports?
    -How do you get the files on the Disk? I know you should burn it as bootable, but simply drag the files in the DVD?

    Thats the questions that I can't answer..hope someone can...
