Wait, uncompressed AVI or divx/xvid?
divx/xvid AVI files will play just fine. I haven't really tried H264 playback yet but that *should* work as well.
WMV files have been reported to play too.

hope to see CD/DVD support soon.
is there AC3 support?
well i hope to see support for the codecs in CCCP, I will be very happy.
i just played a high quality 700MB avi with this and it played without a single flaw from start to finish. I would just like to say this is a blessing to the end user and thank you for such an amazing application (I am very impressed!)
amazing quality and supports many formats that all play with ease couldnt ask for a smoother media solution
The things that could make this better:
naturally a GUI that goes without say (yet i say it doh...lol) and i was thinking what if you could hook up a USB based external HDD to play your media from! imagine that would fill the void/lack of media on the wii!
(they sell cheap at bestbuy 90$ for a 300 GB western digital external hard drive i use one for my 360's media actually)
all in all i would be happy if this were the only release! this application is just an amazing contribution to a ever growing wii homebrew scene gr8 work i will be watching this close as it matures!
Great work. Getting a direct port of MPlayer is just one step towards getting XBMC on Wii one day. I hope you continue this project
I'm going to be one of those annoying people who asks for new features while the product is still young -
CIFS support would be extremely useful!
Man, thanks for the contribution to the scene! I'd like to say that subtitle fucntion is the most desired feature I'd like to see in the next realse. I just can't wait for it!
Also are you considering to include the realmedia support?
