    yes im sorry to say but i wouldnt even bother because the wii video format is huge a 100 meg file ends up being 1.2 gigs just after conversion using the wii video 9 converter so i would say dont even bother with video on the wii

    considering the wii is limited to 2 gigs only right now

    ya! I'm really upset with the format that the Wii uses. I converted a 13MB file, and it ended up being like 70MB. Why couldn't they use like MP4, like the ipod Video. I have full-length movies on mine, and they are only about 500MB. Nintendo should have done that...

    Well it would be very easy for them to give an firmware update whihc would allow you to use USB devices but they wont because it would be easier for pirtaes to homebrew and that is why SD card sare limited to 2gb because they know if tehre is a way to boot a game of like an SD card every Wii game is over 2gb so there is no way to put it to the card.

    I think this is the last thing Nintendo is worrying about right now. I don't think they will be doing anything like that soon...

    Ya, that's true. Maybe we should put a petition together, and send it to Nintendo showing them they should change the format of videos to be viewed on the Wii...
