    As the title said I got it to work finally. I search and search but no one was saying how to make it work after you got it modded. I use the Wii Key and it play perfectly even .avi, .ogm and .mgeg videos worked.

    Now my Wii is just like my xbox which i dont use anymore. THANKS WII KEY :)

    whats the point ... risking damage to your wii by modding it when pretty much everyone nowadays already has 2-3 dvd players in there house and there now like, what 30 bucks to buy.

    Change the thread title, you are confusing people. You cannot play DVD's on the Wii, all you are doing is playing video files.

    HI all

    I play DVD movies and ALSO video files.

    I live in Jamaica so they don't sell DVD players for just $30. One dvd player cost about 8 thousand Jamaican DOllars.

    Also it's not a risk to install the wii key it's so friking simple I couldnt believe it. It 's much easier than the PS2 it took me a long time to mod that.

    Back the the DVD playback. Just go to www.wiikey.cn and download the wii key setup disk. After u burn it on a dvd-r pop it in and select mce media player. The wii will ask to eject and insert a dvd or media disk. It's that simple. Right now I am watching 40 year old virgin (orginal DVD video) as I am typing this.

    I love the idea that i can play dvd on my wii because i cant bother to switch av cables when I wanna watch movies.

    I do own a dvd player but it SUCKS!!!!!

    Wii key is the best mod chip for the Wii to date. It's very cheap go and buy one. Search wii key in your country and you can find a reseller. Oh and it's very easy to install. YOu get pictures and also there are tons of videos on youtube.com

    man dude your lucky to be able to play DVD's on your wii but I suggest you wait for the DVD play back wii because your damaging the disk laser unless you put the movie in the wii's disk format like the format used to play wii games.

    I never understood the whole DVD importance thing.
    Just pop it in a DVD player or a computer. Why is having it on a Wii so important???

    "Damage the laser"??? Where DO you get your misinformation from? Please don't post false statements if you don't know what you're talking about. Someone might actually believe you. Thank you.

    In fairness you o actually damage the laer because the wii isnt designed to constantly run data off a disc...so there.

    Yes the wii key is the mod chip. secondly the wii does not run constantly i tested it today. WHen the movie was playing i eject it and it was running for a full 10 minutes before it actually stop.

    Remember that the japanese wii can play dvd and it's only a channel them get and it work. It will work.

    DVD on wii is cool and you don't have to switch av jacks when u want to watch a movie. Please note that it also play ALL other media format. I test flv and quicktime and those also work.

    I am watching the new naruto (japanese version) on it right now. Later guys

    Many games (like Metroid) have FREQUENT disc access with the laser head moving MUCH more than occurs while playing a DVD movie.

    what kind of ol piece of sh!t tv do you have where there is only 1 AV jack ... all TV's like 1998 or newer have more than 1 av jack ... me thinks your talking out of your ass to justify the uselessness of play DVD's on your wii

    oh and the mod WILL damage your wii .... straight from nintendo :

    "the mod will also cause significant damage to the console's laser over time, given that it isn't built to function non-stop as is necessary to play DVDs"

    just a complete waste for your wii
