Convert videos to play on the Photo channel on the Wii

I'm a huge fan of the Nintendo Wii but one of the few things that bugs me about the console is that it won't play all my videos. The system uses its own format, the MJPEG, and although you can play AVI and MOV movies, it doesn't support any other type of video file. View full description

PROS

  • Quick conversion
  • Converts a wide range of formats

I'm a huge fan of the Nintendo Wii but one of the few things that bugs me about the console is that it won't play all my videos. The system uses its own format, the MJPEG, and although you can play AVI and MOV movies, it doesn't support any other type of video file.

Or does it? If you use Motion JWii then it will. The script will convert any file into Motion JPEG format, allowing you to store the file onto a memory card and pop it into your Wii.

The conversion process is very quick and you won't need QuickTime Pro in order to make it work. There aren't many options for compressing video which I think would have been nice to see, especially as the Wii Photo channel won't play movies of more than 15 minutes in length.

Motion JWii is a shell script command that can convert most video files into the Motion JPEG format that the Wii uses, with QuickTime Pro. These videos can then be played on the Wii Photo Channel.
