Watch YouTube on Wii


Nintendo Wii allows us to play movies or video clips on this game device. However, not all video files can be played directly. Only the recognized video formats can work, including AVI and MOV files. The downloaded YouTube videos are in FLV format. So if you want to watch YouTube on Wii, you need a YouTube to Wii Converter.

iStonsoft Free Video Converter is such a tool that can convert YouTube videos to Wii. With it, you can easily load videos from computer, then convert them to Wii supported video formats. To know how to use iStonsoft Video Converter for converting YouTube videos to Wii, see the similar guide: Convert YouTube videos to PSP.
