    Default MFE-Wii port using wii-linux

    Hi
    New application for wii, this time is a direct port from the gamecube project. I will post the sources in a few days, with more updates (opentyriam, MAME...) Here is the readme:



    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/showf...kage_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.

    What you need:
    --------------

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


    Installation:
    --------------

    - 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.

    Instructions:
    -------------

    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

    Missing
    -------

    - DVD
    - Wiimote


    Thanks to
    ----------

    - The gc-linux team for their effort in porting linux to the wii
    - Isobel, for his great MFE player minidistro.

    Does this work with the front loader?

    Yes, it launches from the frontal SDreader, and loads videos, mp3 etc... from there

    2 questions. Do I put the .elf and the MFE directory in the root or does the elf go in the elf folder and just the mfe directory goes on to the root. And Where does the avi/mp3 files go?

    Ok theres a problem with the installation guide you gave us. You need to put the .elf in the elf folder not the root. Is there a limit on mb for avi videos? I'm trying to play a 500 mb video and nothings coming up just a blank screen with little sound hiccups here and there.
