    There is WiiMC, a media player for your Wii that can handle pretty much any common format and codec you throw at it. Subtitles work too.

    The only downside is that the Wii itself isn't that powerful so anything 720p and up won't play properly (jittery) because the hardware can't deal with it.

    If you don't go HD, however, you should have no problems at all.

    Be careful with the MKV files. i can get them to work but they lag usually pretty bad. I have tried probably over 20 different movies or shows that are MKV and ALL of them lag. Besides that WiiMC def rocks. I use it everyday.

    if i have problems with a mkv, i just "save as" in quicktime and i'm golden. no need for a long export process.

    you can also do the same in "windows live movie maker". it renames the file if you "save as". the only ones that i know that will not work are the blue rays, atleast on my side.

    Ahhh thanks guys, I will try that. I have a few series that were in MKV format to increase quality (sometimes reduced size too) and they were lagging badly.

    You guys do know that MKV like AVI, is a container file format (a way to store the audio, video, and misc data streams...) and does not specify the quality of or codec used for the video.

    So if your MKV files are not playing well, chances are it is the codec used (H.264 for example) or resolution (720p+) that is the cause. So just by saying MKV, you are not actually saying anything, you need to mention the video format and resolution.

    I thought WiiMC was unstable...

    It is stable these days and better than MPlayer CE in pretty much every way.
