    Dvd Player for wii

    Can anyone tell me what is the best DVD player to download to the wii?

    Is there a program that does like the usb loader where you can insert a DVD and copy it to the hard drive to be played back.

    search through wiibrew.com is your best bet. You never know what you'll find there.

    Ya I figured that would be to good to be true, I have searched alot of apps but havent seen anything so I thought I would just ask here.

    It sure would be a great if this was possible its so simple and quick to do with games, maybe somebody can come up with a program that can do this.

    So do you just play the disc through the wii or do you use it to load a movie on a hard drive to watch.
    If using the wii rom could that cause premature ware on it, if that was the case I would just stick to using a dvd player.

    It would probably be best to just use a proper dvd player if you have one around, depending on how old your wii is dvds probably could cause some un-needed ware

    It's "so quick" because you're not actually copying 4.37gb of data to your HD; that's hardly an accurate or fair comparison.

    And since it was never really designed to play dvd movies the way it was designed to play wii games. It has a hard time just playing .vob files even when modified.
