    Take a look at http://www.wiimc.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=224

    It will explain your problem. .mkv files within the allowable parameters will play fine.

    It would be nice if the moderators would make this information a sticky.

    You need to turn subtitles ON in the Settings before they will display.

    .flv files containing VP6 video streams, can take a long time to jump forward if you click on the timeline. The delay which looks like the system has frozen up is about 1 minute for each 5 minutes of skip, so if you jump to the middle of a 1 hour video be prepared to wait 6 minutes until it resumes playing. I have reported this as a possible bug.

    UPDATE: As of 1.0.4 none of my .flv files will jump forward. Any attempt to jump results in the termination of playback and return to the video menu. This is regardless of the Video Codec used (AVC/VP6/H263).

    This has been reported as Bug #142 but with “Very Low” severity and “Low” priority. The work around is MPLAYER-CE which can play and skip these files correctly.

    Since it works with .72 why not report it as a bug. “Contribute/Report a bug”. Tantric has been knocking them off everyday!

    OK, I have VLC playing my X264 videos, transcoding them and streaming them to my WII URL. But what protocol should I use and how do I set up WIIMC to receive it and play the stream?

    That’s a good idea! Why not post it in the Feature Suggestions Forum.

    You need to understand the WIIMC appears to have come corruption after playing a few videos and will then freeze or dump the next one. This is apart from the core dump or freeze that will occur when playing a file with a resolution too high for the WII to handle. To determine which is the case restart WIIMC and try playing the video again. This always fixes the first problem for me until this problem is fixed. I have reported it as a “Corruption” bug.

    I would like to see a sample of the 720P H264 that you can play on CE. I have been unable to play these on MC.
    Can you attach a the first 3-5megs of your file to a reply to this thread? I can then test it here. Tks.

    If you post a portion of these videos I will test them. You an use the attached jsplit program to do so. Put the program in a new subdirectory, select the problem file and run it with “bytes per file” set to custom and the size = 3000000 Upload the .1 segment which will be in the new subdirectory.

    As I posted in http://www.wiimc.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=224 files with resolutions that are slightly too high for the WII may freeze rather than dump. In my case all my DIVX/XVIDS play fine eg 672×368

    I have no problem with .srt subtitles. All my .srt files play file with the videos of the same name.
    I did have a problem with one of my .mpg files. Not only were subs not displayed but the time counter started at 31 minutes on a 27 minute video and the progress bar showed all blue! Turned out the .mpg file was not of a standard format even though MPC played it on my PC. Running it through WOMBLE fixed it and now the subs display fine.

    There is a bug with .smi SAMI subtitles which I have reported.

    If you attach your .srt file to your reply and I will check it for you.

    BTW..the B button does not switch subtitles..its the UP button. And the Subtitle settings are ON or OFF, there is no AUTO.

    I’m using W7-64 which seems to treat sharing differently. When I click Sharing under drive properties the Sharing button is greyed out, whereas with a sub directory it is active and allows me to select share with “everyone”. With the root drives (both of which are external USB drives) only the advanced sharing button is active but setting “everyon”e there still does not let WIIMC access it.

    After searching the web, turns out you also need to add “everyone” to the security tab if it is a root drive. It now works fine.

    More research here. Seems VLC can transcode and stream according to” Advanced use of VLC’s stream output (transcoding, multiple streaming, etc…)” athttp://www.videolan.org/doc/videolan-howto/en/ch09.html

    Has anyone used/tried this and will it work with WIIMC?
