    Wii DVD Player

    Play DVD movies on your Wii








    [​IMG]



    How would you like to play DVD movies on your Wii? The yet-to-be-released Wii DVD Player will allow any modded Wii or GameCube to do just that. It will play original discs as well as burnt disks. This looks to be a great piece of homebrew. Hopefully we will see a preliminary release in the near future.

    Read the source. Not too keen on the whole, "load DVD with program then swap for real DVD". I really hope this pushes for AVI/DIVX/MP4 media centre to be playable off the SD card in the future.

    Looks great, just a shame it'll be limited on the gamecube. I hope the wii homebrew comes soon then maybe we'll see a wii media centre.

    who needs this anyway. dvd players are cheaper than a dinner with your girlfriend.
    swapping discs to play a movie? no way.

    Um... wasn't there a Wii SDK leaked a couple months ago? Even though it was really out of date, couldn't that SDK be used to make the wiimote work with this?

    This is Gamecube homebrew. AFIAK Gamecube software on the Wii cannot access Wii specific hardware such as the Bluetooth controller.
