    Watch movies in your Wii

    ever since i saw that u can load pictures and watch movies (through sd card) it hit me that you can save movies (downloaded or ripped) into a sd card, and watch them in the Wii, all u need is a 2gb, should be enuff. sure beats download and burning and wasting cds (like i do) i see me doing that. same way i did with ds, thanks to homebrew

    yeah, that's a good idea, like recyclable DVDs.

    Depends on how good a quality you want them on. If it's proper DVD quality, then no, most discs are dual layered, usually somewhere between 5-8GB. If you decode it and recode it (despite it being illegal-Evasion of the copyright protection), depending on if the Wii will actually play the new code, you may be able to get somewhere, just don't count on it being good quality.

    Because you're also using the computer to tranasfer DVD content onto the SD card, the computer will have to read it, and play it, thus rendering the "need" to play it on the wii, pointless.

    Now if it was the expensive DS Media Player thing:

    Then at least the screen size would be smaller, meaning the video size could be downgraded without significant loss of quality.

    But all in all, if you're ripping from DVD (for quality) despite it being illegal, is also pointless.


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    This really depends on the file-types you can use for quality and size, if you can use mpeg4 than 2 gb will be more than enough especially if you don't want the extra crap, and for the time to decode dvd it depends on the speed of the computer/dvd player and the software you use.
    If you never try you may never fail, but you will also never succeed.

    don't rellay care TOO much about the quality,i watch movies that are 600 mbs and look beautiful, i would have to be a ps3 fan in order to care THAT much about hd and all that....lol sorry had to, i thought it was funny..but yea, no more worries about movies for me, and for that lil ds advertisment u showed, i knew about it, but i used the gba movie player and saw a bunch of movies in my ds with it, nintendo can be very resourceful
