    Never heard anythig about burned movies working. Frankly it would be easier to play DVDrips from SD or USB using MPlayer CE

    I think that newer Wiis can't read burned DVDs, because of the new disc reader they use.

    they can, but for some reason it only works when i burn the entire disc image, not just the rip of the movie

    Well, I tried a burned DVD of Watchmen and it froze up. There's a few legit movies that won't work either (like the Dark Knight). IDK if any burned movies work.

    mplayer-ce with dvdx and ios202 can do dvds. the freezing problem is just a part of mplayer-ce. doesn't always freeze, but it's pretty safe to assume you'll be dealing with that very often. there's no better solutions, so for now, we deal.

    I haven't even been able to get DVDX to play any at all, and that includes my regular DVD movies.

    Did you run the latest HackMii installer? In that case it's because MPlayer CE hasn't been updated to work with DVDX's new titleid. If you install IOS202 DVD playback will work, however.

    I wasn't aware that you were supposed to install something else to get DVDx to do its thing. I was always made to believe that once you install DVDx, you just pop in a disc and it would play somehow.

    That's how it usually works. But like I said, MPlayer CE doesn't work with the new DVDX yet. IOS202 can enable the same functionality completely independently of DVDX

    To clarify, make sure you're picking FILE, then browsing the DVD if you're trying to load something like an AVI or MKV from DVD. Also, you are best off installing IOS202, like the others said.

    You must be selecting the "wrong" option...

    WiiDVD Data files on disk.
    DVD-Video VideoFiles.
