    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.

    the only thing i have is in my spoiler, it's a mod from way back, it was used for wiimc 1.1.4-.5 it's a theme mod. though it dosn't change the screen saver.( wish they would add geek box screensaver.). just look in my spoiler. as far as going to wiimc page, an asking.. good luck with that. if you get a reply or response.

    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.

    This is correct. WiiMC is based on mplayer, not VLC.
