Thank you !!

Thank you for this nice release ;) works great for the first release --NIxx

I tried several video files and the new version run almost perfect now USB access would be nice ;) --NIxx

Buggy Much?

Crashed Immediately

  • 18.4 MB
  • .mkv file
  • 720p

why would you play a 720p file when the max output res is 480p?
Thats what the file was when i got it. --Navarr 09:35, 6 July 2008 (CEST)
No, see... you're missing the point. The Wii can't display video at that resolution. At least, it was never intended to. Sure, rgb connections are capable of supporting the signal, but the wii just won't do it. Even if the extra capability could be unlocked through homebrew, the wii hardware would just suck at doing it. Try a video with a lower resolution. Also, you're right. It shouldn't crash. Hopefully this issue will be fixed. Flark 06:25, 7 July 2008 (CEST)
It should scale it down to fit if the source resolution is greater than the screen resolution. -- Ulti 23:47, 8 July 2008 (CEST)
You're absolutely right. I finally got around to testing the app. I'm watching a 720x400 file right now (larger than 480p). I noticed that it doesn't stretch horizontally all the way across the entire screen, which seems a bit weird. Flark 04:26, 9 July 2008 (CEST)


but please add at least a pause and stop button :). --Jfitie 10:30, 6 July 2008 (CEST)

Very Promising

I started the application up and it was like the time I ran the initial winamp for the first time and thought "Oh my God, its making music!". Im going to need new pants.

The mp3 playback seems flawless so far, except for delayed responses when seeking. The quality is great. When playing video files the debug info will pop up any errors and scroll the video out of focus momentarily. I assume this is normal for now for testing, just incase people decide to complain about it. I even ran a 640 x 360 mov and the image looked great.

Yes, this works surprisingly well. I'm impressed. Also, I hope the verbose way it is running right now doesn't go away in favor of a pretty gui front end. At least not right away. It is very useful for reporting errors. You know what would be better though? Logging to a text file on the sd card.

Very Satisfying

I've been running some tests on how well each file type works. So far, MP3 files play perfectly. I'm listening to "Mann Gegen Mann" by Rammstein right now. :) Tried to watch an episode of Ghost In The Shell in AVI format: audio tended to fall out of sync with the video, and video speeds were variable, as well as audio buffer overflow messages bumping the video up and down. This is a great undertaking, nevertheless. I'm really looking forward to seeing its future capabilities. --Captcouch 01:43, 9 July 2008 (CEST)

Great work

Just tested it with some random stuff, some WMA songs, an AVGN WMV video, a DIVX and a bunch of MP3s, it runned flawlessly from what I saw. Great work. I got a CODE DUMP when I closed the program though. Makawee 17:35, 9 July 2008 (CEST)
