Can The Wii Play DVDs – Get The Secret
I was writing on this topic before, can the wii play dvds? Yes, it can play DVDs using a small software. This technique called the Homebrew channel where you can update the software of your Wii device to release many good functions like playing DVDs and many other things. For bluray, this is no any available techniques can help you to do it.
Only DVDs can be played on your Wii. In other hand, this is an alternative technique to make your Wii play DVDs, this technique called Harmod technique where you can edit the hardware structure of your Wii to make it accept playing the DVDs. But this technique is very dangerous and has a risk of damaging your Wii internal structure. So, my advice is going with the Softmod using the Homebrew channel installation.
