    Megavideo through my notebooks browser comes up with the same message as the above poster. IE do you want to save this file/open When I try to open it through wiimc It goes to buffer mode then comes up with error loading file.

    If IE try to download the file means that vlc-shares works. Maybe you have problem with wiimc/network.

    About animeftw: right click on the EasyPhp icon in the task bar, then select “configuration -> PHP extension”. Select the extension “php_openssl” and enable it. Then click Apply and then Close. After that Restart EasyPHP.

    [PluginInstaller] Checking for directory permissions : C:Program Files (x86)VLCShareswwwvlc-sharesapplication/../application/Bootstrap.php not writable

    Anyway you have to fix permissions for vlc-shares folder (by default C:Program Files (x86)VLCShares).
    This is a quote from EasyPHP FAQ:

    You need to change the user s permission for the EasyPHP directory
    1. Go to ‘Computer’, open/view Drive C, then double click ‘Program Files (x86)’.
    2. Right click on ‘VLCShares‘ folder then click ‘Properties’.
    3. On ‘Security’ tab click ‘Edit’ button.
    4. Select the user that you are currently using.
    5. Under ‘Permissions for Users’ box, tick ‘Full control’ on ‘Allow’ column.
    6. And then click ‘OK’ button to apply the changes.

    Anyway, please use THIS thread (http://www.wiimc.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1181) for questions and problems related to 0.5.3 version

    I can confirm that animeftw allsp youtube all work from my wii
    Still get error loading file! when trying to access megavideo/jigoku.it/narotuget.com and RAI streams. 🙁


    RAI streams is a special plugin available in Italy only. jigoku links are all megavideo based. Which version of wiimc are you using?


    Ok cool beans. Which plugins are compatible in the Uk?
    For future reference.
    My version of Wiimc is 1.1.3.

    I must say I’ve never found a developer reply so quickly to users questions. Props to you man.

    All except direttarai. The problem is that RAI.it site streaming is available only in italian territory


    Any luck on finding out how what could be the problem regarding megavideo?

    Sometimes Animeftw works fine. Other times with Lag. Thought I might add that too.


    the lag It’s not a problem of vlc-shares. Vlc-shares task it’s only to parse web sites and give back to wiimc valid stream link.


    Cool, what about me not being able to view megavideo through wii?

    I’m really stumped as to how animeftw/youtube works and megavideo does’nt.


    do you use “watch directly” mode or transcoded mode?

    for allsp/youtube/megavideo etc i allways have selected stream with vlc.

    megavideo works though when I put watch directly.

    should I just use that method then? I’d rather be able to do both.


    yes. It’s always better to use direct mode when available. I don’t know why but some megavideo links don’t work in transcoded way. Vlc doesn’t get the video source. Anyway it’s not a vlc-shares problem so i can’t fix it.

    Thanks anyways guy, I’ll direct stream from here on when availble.
    Your quick responses have helped me. Thanks again.

    Now to speak to some one from Wiimc side of things.
    Was viewing a stream. Then pressed the home button and got a stack dump. lol


    Thanks dude.

    I was thinking there’s a website megastreaming.org you may be familiar with it. If not it bypass’s the time limit of megavideo. if you have a free account.

    Do you think you could add a work around for the megavideo plugin so this could be added?


    It’s not possible. The trick used by megastreaming can’t be used in vlc-shares. You have to use proxy or pay for a premium account if you want to bypass megavideo’s limits.
