Play DVDs on Your Wii (updated)

Have you been waiting on Nintendo to release a DVD supporting version of the console? Forget them. One of the talented members of Team Twiizers (The same people who brought you the Twilight Hack and the Homebrew Channel) have enabled DVD playback on un-modded Wii's with DVDX.

Check the comments section see other users' experiences. Most of them report success. Some report problems like slow playback or an inability to get past the DVD menu (there could be issues with specific DVD setups—not all menus are created equal). Use at your own risk.

WiiHD's real DVD player has been on the rocks for a LONG time, so this is a welcome arrival. It would stink to have to buy new hardware for an old format when BD superiority is just around the corner anyway.

Update: Footage of the hack in action after the break.

Update2: Joystiq has posted their own video guide to getting the hack up an running. See it after the break.

Joystiq's Guide:

Thanks to GoNintendo for posting the video footage.
