You can however watch videos off of SD cards, if they're in the right format.

heeeey waait wait wiat, don't think its not possible, you just have to know how to install homebrew (modchips, u know, just as in ds) and then you can place all kinds of homebrew into the wii, including tons of dvd-players (since its very easyto make 1). I dunno why nintendo hasnt made one yet (???) if even homebrew developers claim it to be really easy, and they've proven it.

I don't think you are allowed to talk about homebrews

Well, the format itself is legal (the support is built into the Wii Photo channel). Uh, how you get content for it depends...

It also takes up a lot of memory.

Nope. Nintendo make gaming consoles not dvd players!!!!!!! ;)

The Japan release in early 2008 features dvd playback.

There's nothing illegal that is being discussed here.

Anyways, I think it'd be AWESOME if you could watch DVDs on your Wii *secretly installs an HD DVD player on* :P.

I hope though in the near future when they do an "updated" Wii like how they update with the elite, I hope they'll add some DVD function or something. That'd be awesome :). Come on Nintendo pull through for me :).

But why though? DVD playback was a neat thing to have back when standalone players cost hundreds of dollars. Nowadays, they cost 20-30.

Sorry, I was reffering to an HD DVD player (since blu ray is the with the whole sony deal).

Maybe you shouldnt worry to much about the Wii playing Music, DVD's or even games for that matter. What you should be doing instead is going to school, your spelling is gawd awful. In a 14 word sentence you mis-spelled 3 words, and by a mile.
