Through the photo channel the Wii can play movies in MJPEG format, but it can’t read DivX, XviD or MPG movies. Now there is a simple solution for converting videos to play on your Wii. Wii Video 9 is just like PSP Video 9, where you select movies and click on covert to get the job done. I played with the tool yesterday and it can convert MOV and DivX movies with ease. Below is a demo of some of the converted movies, which look fairly decent.
Since the videos are being converted to MJPEGs, the size of the video files increase. The 300 trailer was originally 7.81MB and after being converted it became 41.7MB. If you’re planning to watch a movie on your Wii you’re probably going to need a 1GB+ SD card. You can download Wii Video 9 on their site, but since their download link was having problems earlier you can download the tool directly from us.
