    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

    You need MPlayer CE, it is the best one.

    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
