    I did some poking around and apparently the change is being made because Nintendo is getting a price break for supporting .aac files as opposed to .mp3s. Remember that Nintendo has to pay royalties for the 'decoders' and the ITunes one was apparently less expensive.
    They did say that if a game has a built in mp3 decoder, such as excite truck, the files will still play.
    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons.
    Remember, you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Well if cost was the issue, they should've gone with Ogg Vorbis. 100% free and sounds much better than MP3 at the same bitrate. So it would've been even cheaper than AAC.

    Anyway, if you wish to voice your opinion on this, send an email to Nintendo:

And those who got AAC can do all the new stuff.
    they should have both files associations.

    I can understand adding AAC support, but to remove MP3 support in the process is just plain stupid.
    If they really wanted to make a statement, they could add Ogg Vorbis support.
    I agree with these statements.

    Does this mean that we can plug our ipods into the wii through the USB port and play music or video files directly from it? I fail to see the benefit of this update other than for the upcoming Smash bros. video feature.

    honestly its crap.

    you can only use the music when looking through a slideshow of your pictures, thats the only way.

    its quite good, in games, like excite truck, and i really need to start using it in endless ocean to make it more fun lol

    Keep in mind it's just a custom background for the Photo Channel icon, not the whole Wii screen background.

    very true it may be better with mp3's but you don't have to download it if you don't want to to keep the mp3 compatibility. It would've been better if Nintendo made it so it was compatible with AAC and MP3.

    You can download audio converters "free" from the net...I have Magic Video Converter (it also does audio)
