The Popular Wii DVD

By Zach Scott

Aside from Microsoft Xbox and Sony PS-3, Wii is also in the list of the most popular gaming consoles nowadays. It was once known to be ahead from the others except that its DVD playback capability was disabled. But thinking of their fans' pleasure and benefits, Wii coders developed some methods on how to play DVD on wii. That's when Wii DVD started to bloom.

There are two methods to simply and safely play DVD on Wii. If you are curious as to who is behind such methods, well, that is thanks for Homebrew. They provide the answer on How to Play DVD on Wii. What does that mean? This time, the said console is more fully developed for DVD playback and that's through the Homebrew function.

This time, to allow such function, Homebrew installer software packages already has standard feature. Hardware change can be done and softmod can be used for an easier and better use. This is where the two approaches in playing DVD on Wii comes in despite the fact that not all people are interested enough to go into the details of its technical procedures.

Let us know talk about the said two methods. The first of which is by accessing the Wii Homebrew Channel and the other method is by employing a DVD to Wii Converter or using the DVD to play DVDs on Wii. Although this time these are the only two ways that were made known to the people, a lot more will come in the future since Wii Homebrew DVD will not be left behind.

Let us further talk about those methods. In method one, Wii coders gave the console what it lacked before-a DVD playback, by installing a small, hidden channel on a system which blesses the console with a libdi file or DVD access library and allows you to view videos with the MPlayer application or the open source media player. In this method, you have to download a homebrew video player, copy them to an SD card, and use the Homebrew Channel to apply a two-second patch. Once installed, you can then pop into the Mplayer app from the Homebrew Channel, put a video DVD in the drive, and your favorite video will be right infront of you in no time. However, one has to take note that there's a corresponding risk on the Wii if you do something wrong.

Now, let's get to know the second method. In this, one has to use a DVD to Wii Converter to play converted DVD on Wii. To modify method one, the second is considered as easier and safer since all you need is a DVD to Wii converter and an SD card. How is that done? Well, you have to convert DVD to Wii supported format with just a few clicks. After that, copy the converted DVD to your SD Card. Once done, just play the converted DVD on the Wii with the SD card plugged in to your wii and then sit back and relax for you'll have the entertainment you've been waiting for. Indeed, the two methods are great; you just have to choose which one to use.
