    That new version makes me fail to play any video. Tried to play AVI(XviD) and MKV(AVC). They worked fine on 1.1.5 and they are NO HD!

    On every try I get a stack dump.

    I should add that I updated via WiiMC itself. It showed me up that there is a new version.

    just restart the wii .. that error code is because you quickly start the video the, you need to waite for 2 mins because its loading playback inside

    @Hydraulik
    Uhmm weird
    Try this version: http://www.mediafire.com/?56d1svlaumv9hmz

    In theory is the same code but compiled by me, I’ve tested a lot and no errors

    I got the same dump @Hydraulik trying to play an avi (XviD too) via smb share.
    I updated via WiiMC too and tried the same video 3 times.
    Then, I got my sdcard and made a new WiiMC installation on it. Lost all my configs
    and restore points and got the same dump =P
    Have to return using 1.1.5.

    i get dump every time i try to play video, music or watching pictures

    i was just having the same problem. I restarted, no dice. but i then I changed my Aspect Ratio to auto, from 16:19, in Video Settings. Now all my videos that worked before, now work again and don’t crash the wiimc. hope this helps.

    double checked. put it back to forced 16:19 and those smb videos crashed

    oh but i think music might still be fast forwarding. yep music still messed, no clue there.

    music settings change the Play Order to Single. Now it works. Funky stuff man.

    every time there is a new update, my wii has a harder time playing dvds, any ideas?

    Just a piece of advice for all: When I had issues I thought were caused by the autoupdate, I updated manually by deleting the app right off the sd card and replacing it with the newest copy.

    hope this helps at least 1 other person ease their frustrations.

    Can you fix the problem with the videos in .mp4? please

    Same here, after update every videos causes a dump

    Rondries, your build works.

  22. Hydraulik
    April 16th, 2011 at 01:16 | #22

    I did a few Tests and here are my results:

    Rodries’ version has the same bugs the officially version has. Deleting old version and update manually seem not to work, too.

    But Jsun is right. WiiMC only crashes when 16:9 is being forced in settings. When I switch back to 4:3, the new version runs properly.

    And I forgot to mention that I play my videos from Hard Drive. (Not SMB like Thiago does.)

    a little solution if you can’t set 4:3 aspect ratio is setting up screen zoom to 95.00%, 115.00% and aspect ratio to “auto”.. that’s work for me

  25. April 16th, 2011 at 07:37 | #25

    I have the same problem with .flv, .avi and .wmv files at max. 576p over SMB.

    @Hydraulik

    ok, I’ll try to find the bug, I’m sure it’s about my last memory optimization texture changes

    Ok reverted my mem optimization:

    @rodries
    Yep, it’s fixed now.

    But I found another bug today. When I play MKV (AVC) Videos, the picture is getting out of sync and after 2 minutes, the video is playing faster (the sound doesn’t) and will sync automatically. And it will get out of sync after 1 minute again. It’s a bit strange. When I play this on my PC it won’t get out of sync.
    And: The less I set the buffer option, the faster it syncs itself again. I experienced this in 1.1.5 … don’t know if it got fixed yet.

    @Hydraulik
    What’s the resolution of that video?

  31. Hydraulik
    April 16th, 2011 at 18:07 | #31

    @Tantric
    It is 720×540, using x264. Audio Codec should be AAC, but I’m not sure about. It has 3 audio tracks and 2 subtitle tracks. I got 153 Files of that, 20 minutes each.
    Need more Info? Size should be ~150MB. I could send you one of them if you want to test around.

    @Hydraulik
    That’s not a bug. You’ve reached the upper limit of what the Wii can play.
