Watch DVDs on your Wii, through homebrew

I haven’t posted this story yet, because it seems like the method to get this to work is a bit messy. Today, I’ve heard from a lot of you guys on the topic, and you all seem very interested in the story. I’ll share the news, but I don’t suggest that you try it. There are some bugs that still need to be worked out.

While we wait for Nintendo to finally share the details of their Wii that plays DVD movies, the homebrew scene has taken matters into their own hands. They’ve whipped up a way to watch DVDs on your current Wii, and your system doesn’t have to be modded. I’ve heard reports from multiple readers that have gotten this to work, but one time only. The team behind the homebrew is working to fix the issues that have cropped up, so you might want to hang back for awhile before trying this.
