In the following pages, I will outline two ways to enable you to freely watch DVD movies on your Nintendo Wii. Just make a comparison on which would be better for you.

With this method, you would need to download and install Brorsoft DVD Ripper – a top rated DVD to Wii Converter firstly.

With it, you can easily rip DVD movies to Wii compatible MOV, AVI video files quickly with excellent output video quality. Besides converting DVD files, it can also compress a DVD to smaller file size, saving the space for your console if you need. In addition, the built-in editor allows you to customize your DVD videos to get the very part and effect you want with ease. The equivalent Mac version is DVD Riper for Mac, which aids you to convert DVDs to Wii under Mac OS X.
