    Now you can finally watch DVD's on the Wii! It's nothing official from Nintendo, but if you have the homebrew channel installed all you need to do is add the mplayer app and the libdi installer. After installing just load mplayer and you are good to go!

    Check out the YouTube video of this in action or find out more and download at HackMii

    Nope it shouldn’t do, however I don’t have a Wii so I cant be 100% sure. You could wait and see if any other Digiex members can help answer that one or ask the guys who created the hack over at HackMii
