Wii Settings
If you want to play your own movies on your Nintendo Wii, here are some settings that seem to work. Jack writes –

“As it turns out, the Wii can play home movies as well as show pictures from your digital camera. The only trick is to get the movie in the right format, which is not as easy as it may see. Even though the manual says that the Wii supports Quicktime, it only actually supports a particular type of codec.

Here are the Quicktime Pro settings that I have found work” Thanks Brian – Link.

    What file format does it want? MJPEG is not a format, it’s a codec, to be encapsulated in an AVI, MOV, or MPEG. Which one does the Wii want?

    The photo channel supports JPGs of up to 8192×8192 resolution and QuickTime files of up to 848×480.
