    is the wii capable of playing x264 video files?

    I thought i saw a youtube video of somebody playing a 720p x264 video file using geexbox. could this video have been real?

    as far as it seems it can't... even mid resolution ones (720 x 408 for example) plays crappy at the moment..

    You don't need to convert most of them... just try and decide for yourself... some high res ones may not play at a decent frame rate though
