How do you hack your wii's software to run movies?

I'm kind of looking into to modding my wii. I want to be able to run movies off of an external harddrive connect threw one of the USB ports. Do any of you know how I could go by doing this?

Check the discussion on the Wii Homebrew Channel. Many media player options are opened up once you softmod your Wii, including what you propose to do. Many links to tutorials and the necessary apps are in that discussion. I use Geexbox and MPlayer on my wii, but I haven't hacked it to use an external hard drive. I use a USB flash drive or an SD card.

Well, the problem is that I haven't hacked my wii yet. What I'm kind of looking for is conformation that it's possible. Anyone here that has done this before?

Everything you need to know is here: wiibrew.org­/wiki­/Setting­_up­_your­_Wii­_for­_Homebrew

Then install this: wiibrew.org­/wiki­/Homebrew­_Browser

Then download Mplayer CE via the homebrew broswer

Oh and for some reason those links aren't working just copy and paste them. Good Luck
