    There's apps that play DVD movies like Mplayer or Mplayer CE. I personally use Mplayer (although it's a little outdated). Just look on the Homebrew Browser.

    I don't think it wears out the laser any more than a normal game does.

    it does if you watch a lot of dvd's and most dvd's are dual layer so making your laser work harder to read the data
