    Ok I think there is some confusion here AbdallahTerro. Thanks for answering the added part of my question, but I believe everyone else is asking if there is a convenient way to put multiple videos (as in a season of a tv show) under one cover. Not the same cover multiple times. Obviously you could merge the videos all together but that would be a pain to navigate through.

    Ah, thats a good idea. Are there commands in the wii version of mplayer to let you bring up the playlist to select which entry you're loading? That way it would almost be like a dvd menu. If not I could try to convert the files into a shrunken dvd format.

    ok guys scratch what i said earlier about merging .mkv files it will play the first file but after it returns to the wiiflow screen and wont play the rest of the videos back to the drawing board i guess AbdallahTerro is on to something with the .m3u files but from what i can see in the mplayerce.ini its only able to recognize .avi|.mp4|.mkv files i suppose you can add to the .ini file to recognize .m3u files but ill need help experimenting with this one so if anyone can help please do help sure wish we had Mastershoes help on this one

    I've been playing with it. .m3u files are easy to make as text documents, but mplayer isn't reading them. I've tried using Window Media Player to make them for me as well with no luck.

    Yeah, it looks for .m3u and .wpl at the moment.

    They are seen, they just immediately return to wiiflow.

    Perhaps a WiiMC plugin that supports sub folders would be easier.
    I too want to do the same.

    wiimc is a tad more complex than mplayerce i think it might be difficult but try it and let us know the more help we can get on this topic the better

    I tried two ways to do this and both failed. Using playlists is useful if you have a segmented video, but there is no way of skipping between videos that I could find, let alone an actual menu to choose your episode. I also tried compiling tv episodes into dvd isos to give myself a dvd menu, but the menus seem to lose functionality in mplayer ce when read from an iso. I think I'm at a dead end.

    yea i dont know eather man the only thing i even saw that could have potentially worked was putting them into .mkv and compiling them but it will only show the first video and wont jump to the next one im stumped i messaged mastershoes hopefully he can get back to us with something but for now i think this is deaded

    Dvd isos work,you just have to hold the 2button and use the dpad to navigate. What I think would rock is if wiiflow supported folder browsing. That way you could have all show season episodes foldered off.Flip through your shows,click on one and the seasons pop up. Click on a season and the individual episodes pop up. Similar to the later coverflow versions of the gx emus.

    Yeah, folder browsing would certainly make things easier. I still don't have any luck with menus on isos. They work fine as actual dvds, but the menu bleeds right into the first part of the feature on isos.

    ok so i can't get the video files the way we would like. but i do have coverflow for my mp3 music. this i will post a video as soon as i can get my Iphone from the wife.. using dmp (dragon media player.)..(hopefully there are others out there that like/want this.) but when i choose a file to play i get nothing, when launching but black screen. but can play mp3 file from the main menu of dmp. so i ask the ones that are making "plug ins" please make this a realaltie for the ones who do want this.. you guys have all the emulators an other things..( me along with others (drakorex comes to mind.:) ) would really like this added. please..
    dmp reads from sd files as default, so this would be the logical loader to use for coverflow. pleaseeee help.. so we can make wiflow the best damn loader for the wii. as i said before THANK you fix94 for picking up wiiflow when everyone thought it was going to die. your hard work has proven it self time an time again..

    ^^ It wouldn't be logical to read from SD card as default. Most of use USB only. I load nothing except legacy apps and other things that require an SD card such as DM-Lite. Otherwise it's USB 2.0/3.0 all the way. Much faster and WiiFlow works better if using a single partition for all files. I have way more data than SDHC can hold between covers, cache and plugin games.
