Mplayer CE and Youtube
January 24, 2011 03:45PM
Did this feature get removed? I just bought a Wii about a week ago and set to soft modding it instantly. Mplayer's ability to play online content is pretty great, and I've already added a dozen more blip.tv channels.

I saw that Mplayer CE could apparently play Youtube content, and set about trying to get that to work. I'm pretty sure I have it all properly set up, but Mplayer gets trapped in a loop whenever I try to load a list of videos from a specific YT channel. I notice there's a separate release of Mplayer on the Homebrew Browser specifically with Youtube support - do I need that, instead? What's the difference between that version and this more recent CE version?

For reference, here is how I am trying to play a Youtube video from CE:

      <e name="Freddie Wong" ok="osd_show_text 'Network not yet initialized, Please Wait' 3000 0
                      loadlist '[pentium.extremscorner.co.cc];
                      set_menu inetset
                      pausing pause"/>

That should be right, right?

It doesn't work anymore and hasn't for quite some time. The only two ways to play YouTube on Wii is via the Opera channel or with WiiMC.
