    Is it possible to play xvid or mpegs through a USB device on the Wii? If so, what are the required softwares? Such as Ciso's and what not.

    Thanks

    Actually WiiMC is the latest incarnation and I use it for just what you are asking.

    Well I have been using WiiMC now and it works great! The only issue I have found is that when I play files off of my network, sometimes they just freeze up or go crazy. Perhaps it is because I have an external HD hooked up to my comp (windows 7) then through my router... At any rate I am getting a new HD just for movie files and gonna keep it hooked up directly to my wii to avoid the previous issues as well as avoiding buffering time.

    thanks all
