    You dont need any programs if you use this: Wii Video 9 - Wii Video Converter

    There's a player for Homebrew, just look it up in the Homebrew browser under multimedia.
    You have to also have DivX installed. Usually that's done when you install Homebrew.

    Thumbs up

    the Homebrew media player will also play movies off DVD, no problems
    What I like is that you can use the Nunchuck controller to size & fit the image to the screen.

    If your Wii has a D3-2 drive in it, your wii will only read retail Wii discs, no backups of any sort including movies, Wii or Game Cube backups.

    The traditional way to play movies on the Wii is with homebrew apps, there are a few different apps but I use MPlayer CE. Also make sure you have IOS202 installed, that's the IOS that MPlayer uses, you can find that cIOS installer at WiiBrew. Look here for specifics - MPlayer CE - WiiBrew
    Dogeggs has also posted a little guide in the homebrew section.

    What is that, does it work on an unmodded Wii?
