    Mine is:
    1. MPlayer Ultimate Edition - the ability to play dvds, usb, sd, smb all-in-one [​IMG]
    2. SNES9x - revisit the past and get stuck in into the older games
    3. FTPii - able to explore SD/USB without getting off my arse [​IMG]
    4. Wii DVD Dumper - dump games without having to buy an lg drive, needs to be improved tho
    5. WAD Manager - add customizable channels

    Let's make it top 3.

    Hehe... Location
    1.backup launcher
    2.wad manager (i think i install and uninstall 5 different wads a day)
    3.Homebrew browser (too lazy to browse for 1 app at a time)

    well, i love the fact that people try hard to make their own apps and wads, well watever, but those are my top 3.

    the thought counts oh and next time post in this forum for topics such as this Wii general discussion

    actually, no it doesn't. They are two different programs. The Homebrew Browser is a seperate application that lets you browse and download homebrew directly off the internet onto your card from the Wii, with no need to use a computer to get your homebrew. Trust me, it doesn't do the same thing.

    1. Geexbox, let's you use an NTFS formated USB HDD to view files off of
    2. Mplayer, for DVDs
    3. Wadmanager 1.3 for wad installation
    4. Gecko OS, for launching troublesome import games
    5. Homebrew Browser, as stated above.

    1. Homebrew Browser
    2. BackupLauncher v0.3G 002Fix (launches everything even imports in such a smooth way)
    3. WadManager 1.3
    4. MplayerWii, runs fast (who needs a topnotch gui ?)
    5. GeexBox, because it supports subs and i can watch my anime and yet unreleased movies/series.

    Wow, quite a lot of folks out there willingly using their Wii's DVD drive for movies. Wouldn't take the risk of wearing it out myself...

    My list, numbered by hours used...

    1. FCEU
    2. VBA GX
    3. Genesis Plus
    4. Wad Manager

    And finally 5th (mostly an honorable mention) GeexBox, haven't really used it that much yet but I love running xvid on my TV from a memory card.

    This has been talked about for years already (with the PS2 etc)... Games don't require constant reading of the data on the disc, while DVD movies do spin and read all the time, which wears the system out way more efficiently. I wouldn't wear out my chipped Wii, worth around ~400 euros, while watching movies that can be watched with a 30 euro player that wouldn't hurt my wallet if it broke. That is why I prefer using GeexBox to run Xvid movies from a cheap SD card instead.
