Okay i have noticed numerous several posts on this…(and im sick of buring disc for my films that me and the spouse enjoy and im sick of the FD/HDD on the wii for videos) LOL…
At very first i had difficulty obtaining this to operate and by searching at all the posts that exactly where on this i determined to make a information…
1. Make certain that you Download the Newest MplayerCE i use .77 (wiil include my files later)
2. The critical aspect if this is that the mplayer folder is named mplayer_ce. and situated in the apps folder on the sd card.
MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT in a homegroup
When you are editing your smb.conf file make certain that you have the proper ip address for your personal computer. AS pictured beneath:
3. Following what you want to do it go to your “c” or “d” or what ever before your major drive letter is and make a folder known as “movies” (no rates and no uppercase)
4. Now proper click on on the folder and click on share with:
5. You will get a display like under and make positive that you include “everyone” and study/write entry to the folder.THE Click on Share
Now if you have a consumer-identify and password make guaranteed that you place that in the right spots in the smb.conf file… but i have had good results with lowercase and no spaces passwords and consumer-names, so that is what i would use for the personal computer or flip it off.
Now when you have the smb.conf files changed with the info and saved, its time to get your files in the folder. I know individuals on this web page are prolly anxious about the space that a film will take up on the hdd… or several folks will have then saved on a external hdd.. a decent rip film is 750mb-2gb just via the film that you want to check out on your hdd folder for the smb and then get it off when you are completed…
Now when you have the .avi or .mp4 in the folder go to your wii and load mplayerCE and you really should not get any FREEZING OR CRASHING (as i have not) when you check out to load the SMB share. You need to see your movies listed there and you click on and play… Dependent on the network load/good quality it may well consider some time to cache and commence to play…
