    You actually can.. If you use the Media Player (that worked on the Gamecube too)

    It'll kill your laser though. If you can spare the bit of space, just get a $10 dvd player, or just use your pc.

    That wouldn't be a problem if Wii Media Player could be made work over wifi or someone figures out a way to get a USB HD working, or Nintendo themselves allow it. Of course, here I am thinking about Xvid or dvds on a hd rather than on disc.

    i'm glad Nintendo realised that they don't need to whack a DVD player into their console, everyone already has one.
