    "It looks like DVD playback is finally available for Wii, but it doesn't come from Nintendo and it will require you to have a modded console â€â€Âlike those Nintendo doesn't want you to have. Team Symbiote's hack looks simple, but requires you to start up from a CD and then change to the DVD. Not very practical but if it works as claimed it shows Nintendo can do it. So why the Big N doesn't give us DVD playback on Wii?

    The only reasonable explanation is that DVD playback will make the Nintendo more expensive or their margins less juicy, as it will require them to pay licensing fees. However, if it's possible to do this in software, one way to do it would be to release a DVD Channel in their Shopping Channel and get the final user pay those fees. Easy and painless for everyone, but

    Would you buy a DVD Channel for your Wii?" link

    I wouldn't want to set my Wii up to watch DVD's because i have my DVD player plus my PS2 but i suppose its good for the people that want to view DVD's from there Wii.

    I would never pay extra for a DVD channel, unless it offered something that no other regular DVD player can do.
    Luckily, I can use this MFE DVD player for free, if for some strange reason I want to watch a DVD on my wii.

    I would download a channel for watching DVDs as long as it didn't cost too much :)

    Or, you could just brake the movie clip into peaces and then run it altogether in the photo channel :)
