    Wii Photo Channel Drops MP3s

    Granted I have never used this photo channel (my PCs very close by the TV and it connects up)
    http://uk.wii.ign.com/articles/837/837043p1.html
    US, November 21, 2007 - Nintendo is planning an optional update to its Wii Photo Channel this December which will, if downloaded, replace MP3-music playback compatibility with support of the AAC audio format. In addition, gamers will be able to personalize their Wii Menu by replacing the Photo Channel icon with a digital picture of their own. Writes Nintendo on its official website: "Consumers with MP3 compatible Photo Channels will have the option of updating their Photo Channel to version 1.1, which replaces MP3 compatibility with the ability to play AAC files. AAC files provide a greater sound quality than an MP3 of the same size. This new compatibility will work with MP4 audio files in the .m4a format. Additionally, you can now choose to have the songs play back in a random order."
    Any Wii consoles sold after December will automatically feature the latest version of Photo Channel. Gamers who already own the console will have the option to install the new update.
    "Please note that once the Photo Channel has been updated to version 1.1, the channel will no longer be able to play MP3 format music files," writes Nintendo. However, this update will not have any bearing on in-game playback of MP3 music. "Wii games that currently have features which use MP3 music files will continue to use the MP3 file format. These Wii games will not be compatible with the AAC files," the company adds.
    At least its optional so you dont need to download it

    A response to "Wii - DVD Compatible?"
    "I put a PS3 disc in it and the Wii wouldn't read it. WTF is this world coming to? If I buy a video game console, it better take and kind of media I want. Even if I were to dust off some of my vinyl LPs, the bastard better work."

    So...how do I take my I-tunes files off my computer (when they're licensed to play on my itunes only) and run them on my Wii, surely you can't just put them on the Wii and run them or it would defeat the object of the licensing/encryption wouldn't it? Or am I wrong, I though .aac was apples format, I've never really seen it before.

    No, when you buy from iTunes, the songs are linked to your computer (and I think you can authorize them on a couple other computers to). There would be no way to make your Wii an authorized player for your iTunes songs. The only ones that would work would be ones without the rights management in them.
