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


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


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.

What you need

- A console ready to run homebrew (Twilight hack + SDElfLoader 3.0) - SDCard - Gamecube Pad


- Copy the files mfe-wii.elf and the directory "mfe" to the root of yout SDCard.

- Copy the ".avi" files that you want to play on your sdcard

- Put the SDCard on the wii front sdcard reader

- Connect the gamecube pad

- Launch the file "mfe-wii.elf", using your favourite method of loading homebrew.


Here is the button relation between the gc-pad and the keyboard:

[digital pad]: Navigate through your filesystem, forward and backward [A]: Launch a file (play) [B]: Stop


- DVD - Wiimote
