I want to play one of my old DVDs i found in the attic to find out whats inside. Since My old DVD player is broken, I decided to use WiiMC, Some of the DVD I inserted it says Unsupported DVD since it's clear that's either DVD, DVD-R, or DVD-RW (or maybe it's Blu-Ray). Some of the DVD freezes tight after clicking the interactive card to play the movie, Some of them freezes in the middle of the movie, And some of them Won't interact when clicking some settings on the interactive card. It happens differently in different DVDs
How to fix this? Bug issue?

Hello,

with wiimc, preferably use DVD-R.

other formats DVD-RW, DVD + RW are not supported by all players, anyway, using DVDs you will wear out your lens faster:teach:(take your pick).:D

WiiMC's DVD playback was never perfect to begin with. A cool feature to unlock for sure, but even with the most pristine of DVDs I remember stutters and freezes during playback. Sometimes everything worked without issue, but that definitely wasn't typical.

Yes, it even freezes at the same time as the previous attempts.

Really? I didn't use it a lot (not wanting to wear down the Wii drive when there are a lot of other methods for playing DVDs), but I never encountered any error if a movie started – Some of the more complex menus made starting the movie problematic.
Even a mini DVD-R DL played fine; that was my "hardcore" test – forcing the drive to read burned dual layer which have lower contrast than single layer.

Guess I got lucky.

    I want a 120hz 4k tv but crazy how more expensive the 120hz over the 60hz are. Or even more crazy is the price of 8k's.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    No real point since movies are 30fps
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Not a big movie buff, more of a gamer tbh. And Series X is 120hz 8k ready, but yea only 120hz 4k games out right now, but thinking of in the future.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Mostly why you never see TV manufacturers going post 60hz
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I only watch tv when i goto bed, it puts me to sleep, and I have a nas drive filled w my fav shows so i can watch them in order, commercial free. I usually watch Married w Children, or South Park
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Stremio ruined my need for nas
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I stream from Nas to firestick, one on every tv, and use Kodi. I'm happy w it, plays everything. (I pirate/torrent shows/movies on pc, and put on nas)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    What the hell is Kodi reposts? what do you mean, or "Wut?" -xdqwerty
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Google them basically web crawlers to movie sites
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    oh you mean the 3rd party apps on Kodi, yea i know what you mean, yea there are still a few cool ones, in fact watched the new planet of the apes movie other night w wifey thru one, was good pic surprisingly, not a cam
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Damn, only $2.06 and free shipping. Gotta cost more for them to ship than $2.06
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I got my Dad a firestick for Xmas and showed him those 3rd party sites on Kodi, he loves it, all he watches anymore. He said he has got 3 letters from AT&T already about pirating, but he says f them, let them shut my internet off (He wants out of his AT&T contract anyways)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    That's where stremio comes to play never got a letter about it
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I just use a VPN, even give him my login and password so can use it also, and he refuses, he's funny.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I had to find and get him an old style flip phone even without text, cause thats what he wanted. No text, no internet, only phone calls. Old, old school.
