::yeah, Linux has NTFS support, but does Whiite Linux (and especially GeeXboX)? At least my NTFS USB HDD with external power supply (which works flawlessly under Ubuntu) does not get recognized by GeeXboX while my FAT USB stick does. BTW: afaik Fat is limited to 4GB per file which makes it pretty much useless for things like DVD images and the like and is therefore not an option for many users --[[User:Delirium83|delirium83]] 20:16, 25 July 2008 (CEST)

What video formats does it support?

Well, all videoformats that MPlayer supports, click here to see what is supported: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MPlayer#Supported_media_formats

Stream

Is it possible for this to read off of my mac that is set up to share all files through HTTP? I guess that since this is on the whiite kernel that wi-fi is still missing? Pinball wizard 03:51, 17 July 2008 (CEST)

The wifi still is indeed still missing . SF49 11:11, 17 July 2008 (CEST)

NTFS

Is there a licensing issue with the use of NTFS? I have always wondered why my linux versions could never read my windows drives. And I have a 320GB external HDD, but I dont want to go around breaking it up into tiny partitions just so its FAT32. --Llvanden 12:54, 18 July 2008 (CEST)

FAT32 can handle HDD up to 2000GB. Use a better formatting tool. Felix 13:14, 18 July 2008 (CEST)
Linux has had NTFS read support for a very very long time.--Canumbler 06:41, 23 July 2008 (CEST)

Bug

When loading GeeXBox, the progress bar gets to about (what i would estimate to be 60%) and then my wii shuts down (red lights) complete shutdown. --Navarr 18:45, 19 July 2008 (CEST)

Mine does something similar at the same place as yours (about 60% on the bar), except instead of shutting down, mine just freezes. --Sli 03:15, 22 July 2008 (CEST)
this happened to me after using GeeXboX without problems for some time... I deleted the SDROOT/geexbox and SDROOT/apps/geexbox folders and copied everything over to the SD card and it worked fine again. Maybe try that too --delirium83 18:06, 23 July 2008 (CEST)

Found two things: 1st there doesn't seem to be any vsync, so there is some flickering going on on the screen. Also, audio seems to be offset by just a few milliseconds on the 3 or 4 movies I watched. Except for this, it's still an awesome app! --Jfitie 11:55, 25 July 2008 (CEST)

XMMS

Any intention to include xmms plugin? I would be really happy if I could play sid music in my wii.

DivX support?

Could someone clarify if GeeXboX supports DivX video files? The topic that asked what video formats GeeXboX supports says it supports everything MPlayer supports. And the link given with the list of file formats supported by MPlayer doesn't mention anything about DivX, but I know the MPlayerWii application supports DivX so I'm a little confused. Thanks. :)

DivX is a kind of MPEG-4 Part 2. Felix 13:35, 22 July 2008 (CEST)
Yes, DivX is supported :-) --Solcott 07:29, 23 July 2008 (CEST)

Messed up signal

When running GeeXboX in 480i with component cables, the screen is all garbled. It appears as if it wants to force 480p. My TV has component inputs, but does not support 480p. Would it be possible to make it check with the system menu data for the resolution, rather than setting it based on whether the component or composite cables are plugged in?

Small suggestion

This is just a small, low priority suggestion. When you are changing the volume or seeking, with + and -, you can't hold down the button to do it faster. You should make it work to hold down these buttons to do it faster.
