how can i play movies on my wii off usb stick softmodded with homebrew is it possable
I definitely suggest WiiMC, it's pretty good and can even support x264 / MP4 encoding up to 720x480, although I suggest sticking to 640x360.
wow thats bad resolution is there anything else that will play ???
The issue isn't the software but the limitations of the hardware. The original Wii was designed with the maximum video output of 480p, which isn't even HD, even if the hardware / software could do more it would be irrelevant since the video output is still limited to the aforementioned 480p. If you have Divx encoded video then it should play in 720 x 480 resolution just fine. Surprisingly it doesn't look too bad even on an HD TV, or at least not on the Sony TV I'm using, I'm still not sure if the picture clarity is due to the Wii, the software or the TV itself though...
