MFE-Wii for Wii, using wii-linux 8/4/2008

Introduction

This project is based on the MFE opensource media player for gc-linux. You can find the original sources on its sourceforge page:

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=98581&package_id=156977

This version uses the same sources than the original, there are only some changes on the kernel and the filesystem to adapt it to wii. It uses wii-linux to run on a wii, and the SDL libraries for this system. It will boot using the ARAM filesystem method.

Installation

- Copy the files mfe-wii.elf and the whole directory "mfe" (including mfe-fs.bz2) to the root of yout SDCard.

- Copy the ".avi" files that you want to play onto your sdcard (in any directory)

- Put the SDCard in the wii's front sdcard reader
