Which Filetypes?

Which filetypes are supported by this media player? Sypher 00:28, 26 May 2008 (PDT)

Pretty much everything that the regular MPlayer supports; though some formats seem to be too slow for the Wii (eg, I've had a few MPEG-4 videos that don't play very well...) --Chungy 00:32, 26 May 2008 (PDT)

A download link is missing in the mainpage

While theres a link to download MFE in the wiibrew overview page, theres no link on the page describing MFe itself.

Filename limitations

It is not possible to play a .mp3 or .flac file with a apostrophe (') in the filename. I haven't tested other formats yet. Xyrion 16:41, 24 June 2008 (CEST)

Homebrew Channel compatibility

I was wondering if anyone is working on MFE-s Homebrew Channel compatibility? I'm sad that we can't use the best loader and the best media player for Wii together at this time. :( Xyrion 16:43, 24 June 2008 (CEST)

OK, it looks like disabling the WiiConnect24 does it. Xyrion 15:47, 26 June 2008 (CEST)

How to exit MFE?

How can we quit MFE without a Wii restart? Is it possible? "Exit to loader" would be a very nice option to have. Xyrion 16:43, 24 June 2008 (CEST)

Due to the non-existingness of Wii Linux's (which MFE uses) return to loader function, this currently cannot be done. I think if you fiddle about with the reset button you might be able to get it to restart (and by fiddle about I mean really fiddle, like press it 20 times) Muzer 18:41, 19 June 2008 (CEST)
