    playing movies from usb on wii

    I would like to be able to rent movies load them onto my computer to put on a usb or HDD to play on the wii can someone please give me an idea of what I need to do this.

    What software to convert DVD to whatever file type the wii uses?

    Do I just need Mplayer and a usb 2.0 program on wii or do I also need DVDX or something.
    Dont need a crazy tutorial just a list of the programs needed Thanx

    You can use MplayerCE and load off the USB Drive... That is what i use... Just get you self a .avi file to load.. you can use DVDFab to convert DVD discs to .avi files, or just dl them from torrents..

    i have the dvd mobile option installed (got it from a torrent)

    and one of the first options under the dvd to mobile is generic and that will give you a .mp4 and a .avi
