Hi
I was wanting to know if someone who knows how to code a programs sourcecode so it would run on the wii would do a wii version of VLC Meida Player as it is my fave media player for a pc, plus i love the 'Goom' visualization you can use when listing to Music & would love to use it thru the wii.
here a link to the developer page where you can get the sorcecode from http://wiki.videolan.org/Developers_Corner

I'm pretty sure WiiMC is based on mplayer and not VLC. The VLC-shares thing seems to be a program you run on a server to stream video to WiiMC. Apart from aesthetic reasons, there's not really a good reason to use VLC over mplayer anyway. It may have a few very small advantages, but even if it does, you'd be better off using mplayer2 as that would probably require less work to port and it's (in my opinion) better. I know mplayer2 can handle split MKV files and VLC can't.
