    Mplayer CE - Wii Media Player

    WiiMC is a more current media player for the Wii/vWii.

    Mplayer CE is a media player for Wii/vWii. It will play just about any video file you throw at it, audio files, and stream video and audio from the internet via wifi connection to a local network. The Wii is not capable of HD content, so try not to play anything that with too high of quality. I play standard XVID/DIVX/AVI files of 700MB with no problems. Mplayer CE does not look as good as WiiMC but does work.

    The best way to use Mplayer CE is with HW_AHBPROT support (HBC 1.0.8 or higher), that will provide you USB 2.0 access on both usb ports, and DVD access (if your Wii is capable of DVD access), IOS58 v6176 is required. I will provide you a forwarder that will grant you HW_AHBPROT access, all you need to do is load Mplayer CE with the forwarder. If you prefer to load from the homebrew channel, then you will need homebrew channel 1.0.8, running from IOS58. Mplayer CE also supports IOS202, so having that installed cannot hurt, but IOS202 is not needed. Only one USB port can be recognized at a time, that means 2 USB devices cannot be recognized at the same time.

    MPlayer CE will work without IOS58 and HW_AHBPROT support. IOS202 is required for operation when IOS58 is not present. IOS202 is for Wii only, will not work with vWii.

    Download the latest version from here -


    If you want to install IOS202, here is the WiiMC IOS202 installer v1.1, you will need HBC 1.0.8 using IOS58 to run. Download - Here
    If you do not have HBC 1.0.8 or higher, use the Hermes cIOS installer 5.1 to install IOS202 with a base of 60 or 57 (base 60 is best when using SMB or wireless router connections, base 57 is best for USB HDD use).

    vWii (Wii U in Wii mode)

    Just download and copy to SD card. Of course you need the Homebrew channel installed, and nothing else. MPlayer CE will use IOS58 to run, no cIOS is needed.

    Don't try to install IOS202 to the vWii (Wii mode), it won't work.


    Download forwarder (not for vWii) - Here

    Rename the downloaded image to loop.avi, then copy to your SD card. You may want to save the current image somewhere just in case you don't like the new one.
