    I have a couple of movies in AVI format that I play on my 360 that I want to get working on my Wii. So I installed MPlayerWii version 0.07 and tried playing the videos. The sound works perfectly, but the video just gives me a bunch on nonsense fuzz everywhere. There's also a little green line at the bottom that's not supposed to be there. Here's a picture:

    The green line at the bottom is the very bottom of my TV screen. I also know the file works because it works on my computer and on my 360. I'm thinking I may have to convert it to another file, but I'm not so convinced of that because MPlayer supports AVI files. So what's the problem?

    EDIT: It's on a HDTV, if that matters at all.

    The original MPlayer is outdated. MPlayerWii is the currently maintained version.

    Seems like I'm not the only one having this problem. Would converting it to a different format fix it? If so, which format works and looks best on Wii?

    I'm pretty sure your boot.dol is the same as mine (I just downloaded MPlayerWii of Wiibrew). Just to be sure I replaced my boot.dol with yours. Same results...

    your obviously not using the correct version, it works well for "others" just cannot support large files..
    check the thread out someone has linked above with the channel in there, that particular channels needs the new .dol injecting.

    I don't even think it's HD. Also, if it helps at all, I found out it does work on GeeXbox. I want it working on MPlayer because I hate the loading time at the beginning of GeeXbox. That being said, would converting the file to a different format help?

    It's 701MB. The width is 612 and the height is 320. The video is an hour and 52 minutes long. Obviously it's an AVI file. Anything else you need?

    hmm that should easily play, without doubt, and it's avi, what bitrate and stuff, although that doesn't matter just does over smb...hmm

    Honestly, get the mplayerwii .dol which rodries posted a few pages ago and try, even with the official mplayerwii it will work. hmm

    Well I'm using the official Mplayer, and you saw the picture on my first post. Do you think it could have something to do with my HDTV? I doubt it, but who knows?
