DVD to Wii - The Easiest Way to Play DVD on Wii

Summary: How do i play DVD on Wii? If you are also seeking for a solution of how to play DVD movies on Wii, this tutorial will be helpful. 

As a Wii user, besides playing interactive gaming on Wii, what you may also want is to get together with your friends and family to enjoy DVD movies on Wii. Serving as a home video game console, Nintendo Wii features a DVD drive for games but not for movies, troubling owners who want to enjoy favorite films on Wii. The question is: how to convert DVD to Wii?  That should not be the case since there are numerous ways out of these problems. The fact is that you can play DVD on your Wii with a lot of ease as long as you can get the correct methods. Fortunately, we've worked out two methods that enable you to play DVD on Wii easily. 

AVI for Xbox 360 | iTunes to Xbox 360 | Stream Videos to PS3 via DSLR | Blu-ray/DVD to Xbox

Method 1: Rip DVD Movies to Wii with Homebrew 

As we mentioned above, the Wii doesn't play DVDs or CDs at all. Thanks for Hombrewer, everything becomes easy. Wii users can access the Homebrew channel from the Wii System Menu just like any other Wii channel.

The good: 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 in front of you in no time.

The bad: 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. And you have to take note that there's a corresponding risk on the Wii if you do something wrong.

Method 2: Best Software for Ripping DVD to Wii Supported Format and Playing on Wii

Since there are some risks in method 1, here we offer another one to you. Thee other method is to use a DVD to Wii Converter to rip DVD movies to Wii friendly videos and then copy to Wii for playback. It is said to be the easier and safer method because all you need here is a best DVD ripper and an SD card.

Pavtube DVDAid is considered to be the best DVD ripping software for Wii. With it, you can easily rip DVD movies to Wii compatible MOV, AVI video files quickly with excellent output video quality. Besides converting DVD files, it can also compress a DVD to smaller file size, saving the space for your console if you need. In addition, the built-in editor allows you to customize your DVD videos to get the very part and effect you want with ease. The equivalent Mac version is Pavtube DVDAid for Mac (including El Capitan). Just get the right version and copy DVD to Wii player with ease.

Now you can copy the converted DVD files (in Wii MOV files or Wii AVI files) to your SD card. Then plug in the SD card to your Wii and enjoy your converted DVD on Wii.  

Tips: What You Should Know before Playing DVD Movies on Wii

Actually, Nintendo Wii enables users to play movies in particular formats. Substitute to play DVD movies directly, it is a good choice to rip DVD movies to Wii. However, it is so convenient to manage them on Wii as on smartphones and tablets. Firstly, you should know where to get movies and then learn which formats are supported.

1. Photo Channel

Nintendo Wii classifies available applications into different channels and collects them in Wii Menu. Photo Channel, one of built-in channels of Wii, is the essential part for playing DVD movies on Wii, which is used to display, share and manage photos/movies/videos/audio with Wii console through a SD card.

2. Video/Audio Formats Supported by Photo Channel

Videos in AVI, MOV (QuickTime) or MPEG-4 format with a resolution of up to 848x480 can be supported by Nintendo Wii. Depending on version of Photo Channel, the compatible audio formats are quite different, MP3 for version 1.0 and alternative AAC (file extension .m4a) for version 1.1.

    So I have sorted out the homebrew channel on my wii and have also got the Mplayer CE app, and it comes up in homebrew, but when I go through the steps to play the dvd nothing happens just stays on the Mplayer CE page.... Why is this happening do I need to load something else too?
