    Ok, now one thing has really been bugging me ever since I got my Wii. Which movie files work? So far I've tried mpg, avi, mov and mjpeg. All of which do not work. It seems to recognize the MOV and AVI files, however it refuses to play them. It doesn't even recognize the others. :mad2:

    Has anybody got videos to actually work yet and if so, please tell me what format your videos are.

    I hope Nintendo send out an update soon that makes a bigger variety of videos work. It's weird, in the manual it says MOV and AVI files both work, and although they are recognized by the system, they come up with a question mark instead of a screen shot of the first frame. I just don't know anymore and so I've decided to wait for an update....and wait....and wait.

    I've already played videos on youtube using the Opera web browser, however that is irrelevant to this thread.

    I think it plays Quicktime, but I haven't tried. There are people that have got it to work, also there's a converter out there, just can't remember what it's called

    The converter is called Wii Video 9. It converts the files to MJEPG or something like that. Quicktime files are also known as MOV which I stated the effects of in my first post. I have seen videos on youtube of people working videos, however I am yet to find one where the person explains the file format.

    I've heard that it plays so many file formats, I just don't know what to believe anymore...

    I will try MP4 but first I need to get a converter. I somehow think that the European Wii and the North American Wii play different video formats...

    Having a converter on a console is pointless. You would need torrent or P2P software on the console aswell to download the actual videos, otherwise there would be nothing to convert.

    I finally got my videos to work. So far I've got MJPEG's working which is what Wii Video 9 converts them to. Sadly, I only have a 512MB SD so music videos is what I have to put up with, no episodes or movies.

    I sure hope Nintendo send out an update soon...

    Um, the grey channels and settings MANUAL states it only plays .mov (quicktime / motion jpeg) files. Page 22 in case you're wondering.
