Hey everyone, i've been researching a bit on how to watch videos on the wii. Well here is what i have come up with.
1. You need an SD card to store the file from your computer. U may also need an sd card reader for your computer, or a built in sd card reader that most laptops have now.
2. You need to convert the movie file (avi, divx, mpg, mp4 etc) to a wii compatible format. (motion jpeg (.avi))
3. The wii compatible format is mjpeg which is called a motion jpeg movie or something like that. Mjpegs extension are .avi. NOT .mov.
4. Wii converter 9 by Red Kawa seems to be the "converter" heres a link to their site. Wii Video 9 - Wii Video Converter
5. What you have to do is:
a. Stick your sd card into ur computer
b. Open up wii video 9
c. Go to convert tab and convert ur video
d. The file will be in the program files/red kawa/wii video 9 folder
e. Copy and paste this file into your sd card. (It will be a bigger file, make sure ur sd card has enough space)
f. Take out the sd card and plug it into your wii.
g. On ur wii, go to photo channel
h. go to sd card management
i. go view movie
j. If all has worked, u will now be watching ur video on ur tv!
Sorry for the long post, hope it was somewhat informative.
