Could the Wii DVD Player be made into a channel or homebrew booted?
What dvd player???? (wishes it was true)
i believe not because it is still GC mode homebrew
I don't really think there is a need for one by this time most of us already have one.
The "Wii" DVD player is GameCube homebrew... so a channel can't be made of it. When someone cracks Scarlet (the Wii chip) a Wii DVD player MAY be possible.
And as far as a DVD player is concerned, you can buy one for as little as $20 now.
Wii MFE has AVI support, so ripping DVDs to AVI is always an alternative.
Wii MFE doesn't run large files very well, so don't count on watching a full size divx movie. Chop it into multiple pieces, then load it up. As long as the pieces are under 350MB each, it will run just fine.
I'm watching a full movie on it as we speak....
The file is 750MB encoded in XViD.
The only problem I've experienced with the MFE so far is with long file names.
MFE has handled 1.7Gb movies flawlessly for me.
Heres a thought.
A program called TVersity can already stream to the wii via the opera browser in a limited capacity as it has to transcode everything into flash before the wii will play it. MFE can play avi natively.
Could MFE be used in conjunction with tversity to natively stream the avi files from our computers? Or do we have no wii wifi homebrew libraries yet?
Oh well its all a matter of time I guess
the wiimiidia didnt get released which is a shame
Are you talking about the wii-version or the gc.version? And do you use sd-card or a dvd?
Because I had problems (freezing after a while) with running movies on the mfe-wii-version when I boot the movie from my sd-card...
It must be an issue with the encoding of the files, because everything I've tried has worked. A movie that failed once was fine after renaming it to one word.
Though, I hope streaming or USB Mass Storage becomes available soon, because the SD card can't handle reading and writing large files forever.
I have watched 2 fulll movies (750MB), and no problem.
There are two versions of it out there, one is a test version and it freezes for me too, maybe those people without problems are using the old release. I'm downloading the old release and switch to it, I'll be writing the results...
Can you upload your working version for us?
Only a matter of time .
it is still getting worked on!
Hopefully wiimiidia will support front sd slot...
r u sure wiimiidia is not a fake?
