Thank God: Wii homebrew now allows for DVD movie playback

Today, the Internet has wrought a homebrew hack for the Wii that will allow for the playback of DVD movies on an otherwise movie-playback-less console.

We're all about legal hombrew hacks for Nintendo's Wii. You know, homebrew Tetris, media players, being able to play all of our Mega Man ROMS instead of actually buying any Virtual Console games. OK, well, we're not so sure about the legality of that last one ...

But here's one thing we're not so sure about: playing DVD movies on your Wii. We've known that it's theoretically possible with the hardware, despite the fact that Nintendo chose not to include the functionality out of the box.

So we question: is there anyone out there who really doesn't already own a DVD player that's connected to the same television as their Wii? And considering it takes about two minutes to load a movie and you can get a DVD player at Wal-Mart for less than $30, is this really your best option.

Don't be shy; we won't poke fun. We do recognize that this opens up the gates for some other great homebrew programs, but we're not exactly sure what. We think it involves porn.
