Music player for the Wii. It has a nice interface and is skinnable. It plays mp3, ogg, flac and other formats but does not work with wma. As of 0.25, it now supports m4a and mp4! It is a native Wii application (no Wii Linux) with the intent of being a multi-source media player on the Wii. As of 0.2, DMP now supports Samba sources as well as USB and SD already available. Please visit the website listed on the right for more information!

DragonMedia Player will pick up files anywhere on your SD or USB stick, and plays sequentially once a file has started. If you set up a samba share on your computer and configure it through the /shares/ folder, DMP will play music back wirelessly from your share. Install DMP into the HBC by copying the dmp folder in the zip file to /apps/ and run the program. Do not rename the folder as DragonMedia Player expects things to be in the correct place in order to function.

Supported Formats

Currently, this list is limited, as I have tried to set up the application framework before porting codecs. I am working on getting more formats integrated, and I am interested in supporting as many strange formats as possible even beyond what is already implemented.

  • aac
  • ay
  • flac
  • gbs
  • gym
  • hes
  • it
  • kss
  • mod
  • mp1
  • mp2/mpa
  • mp3
  • mp4/m4a
  • nsf
  • ogg
  • s3m
  • sap
  • sc68
  • sid
  • snd
  • sndh
  • spc
  • vgm
  • wav
  • xm
  • ym

DMP also supports a few playlist types.

  • m3u
  • pls

Supported File Sources

Again, this list is very limited, nothing from DVD or Internet Radio supported yet.

  • Front SD
  • USB
  • Samba

Future Plans

Things I would like to add when I get the time:

  • Meta tag support (embedded images, id3, etc)
  • File source from Internet (and DVD if documentation comes out)
  • More interactive theme support
  • Video (?)

Known Bugs

Tracker formats (mod, s3m, etc.) always playing in "loop" mode.

Bug Reports/Suggestions

At this point, I'm not open to suggestions as it is too early. However, if you find a bug, please feel free to edit in the discussion of this page to let me know. Please don't take this as a suggestion to fork. I will start taking suggestions as the project stabilizes. Be patient!

DMP Themes

To install these themes, unzip them into the themes directory. Then, in the home menu, select the theme on the list. If you are interested in creating a sharp looking default theme, let me know and I'll consider including it as the official default. The one thing is, it has to be entirely created by you; no outside images.
