Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Just when I had accepted that I wouldn't be watching movies on Wii...

...I found a solution at Zellers.  Don't remember the name, but I was Christmas shopping today in the game section, and there was some third-party software for Wii that enabled DVD playback, as well as a whole host of other formats off of an SD card.  I'd post a link, but I didn't buy it (spending money today was only for gifts).  It was $27, for anyone interested.

Very interested. Any more information would be useful.

I like to jump around, and would lead a fairly serene and aimless existence if it weren't for my friends always getting into trouble. I love to help out, even when it puts me at risk. I seem to make friends with people who just can't stay out of trouble.

Wait until there is a first party one...



Thats awesome, especially since my DVD player died recently. I wonder if it will play DivX? That would definitely be $27 well spent.



No evidence whatsoever on Zellers.com.

But then, Zellers.com makes Zellers out to be the #1 worst store to buy videogames from.

 That's a coincidence, so does the real life AV section in Zellers.

They had software at Fry's Electronics in San Jose (the Egyptian motif) that enables DVD playback on the Wii. Didn't bother to pick it up since I have no need for standard def DVD playback on the Wii, but it might have only been $19.99 if I can remember correctly.



You don't by any chance mean the X-OOM? http://www.play.com/Games/Wii/4-/3477826/X-OOM-Movies-On-Wii/Product.html?cur=258



Welcome to 1997!



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
