hi all,

basically I'm "new" to the Wii scene and my Wii is unhacked/modded and I wish it to stay that way (one of the few consoles that will remain legit)

what I'd like to know is is it possible to play video files from a USB stick on my legit Wii (as I don't want to fork out for the expansion thing for playing DVD's)
and if so how do I do it?

now I'm not a total numpty I've done some research and found that my video files will need to be convcerted to Wii compatible files and I have also found Wii Video 9 which should convert my files into WIi compatible.

now all I need to know is, is it possible for my legit Wii to read the video files (once converted) from my USB stick?

(I've used the search function and it gave me 19 pages of things about various games e.t.c.)

thanks in advance and sorry for this probably really noobish and annoying question

You need to use a media player. But what's the special Wii format??

If you only boot the media player from bannerbomb, it should work, but it will be VERY slow, as it's less than 1 MB/s reading speed then.

Forget Wii Video 9 it´s only to convert videos to look them on the photo Channel (pretty bad Quality). Install the HBC and use mplayer_ce

    @Maximumbeans, I'm doing alright, thanks.

    That must be rough. Productive I'm sure but hard to balance with daily life

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Indeed. I've been working on getting this Infecutus chip to work on my PS2. But after soldering, I realised that a plastic piece was missing from the power ribbon cable to the power and eject buttons.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Now I could go with soldering the contacts from the cable to the connector on the mobo, but doesn't sound like a good permanent solution.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Man, that's beyond my brain :rofl: I'm no good with hardware for now. I'd like to get into hardmods in future though
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Maybe start practice soldering. Get a cheap-ass soldering iron and follow some good YouTube tutorials.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Least my experience has gotten better than over a decade ago. My iron would constantly bump into components and break them.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Sounds good. I actually did soldering but like 16 years ago for school so uuuuh probably rusty haha
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Same here. I did soldering at school from a teacher who I honestly liked since he had plenty of good electronics experience.

    @Maximumbeans, I had a friend who had a glass chess set for their birthday.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    It was like all clear and fancy. Tbf I'm not too experienced with chess, but would like to learn someday.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    That sounds really cool

    I know the basics but no strategy at all :rofl:

    Watch chess streamers on Twitch and you'll pick up a thing or two.
