You could probably do that with WiiMC Player but that would be pretty cool to do. Do you mean rip a DVD to fit on a mini DVD with maybe a menu and little else? I would like to see that.

I used to use a program called dvdshrink to burn any dvd to a 4.7gb dvd every time. I think it had options for the minis too.

I feel like you've asked this before or similar, maybe?

In my earlier GC years I remember trying to burn 'Resident Evil 4 Making Of DVD' with various settings for it to work on on the GC (miniDVD) but was unsuccessful.

Someone did say that the audio/video on GC game videos are in either .dol/hd4? format which is currently not decoded properly.
(to lazy to look for thread, this sites phpBB bugs me)

From that one must assume that any other format such as .avi/.mp4/.vob(DVD) would not work since the GC uses certain/specific types of formats for it's videos.
Mplayer-ce is the closest thing available I believe, which requires GC-linux.

Even if you downloaded a DVDrip at 900MB to fit on that 1.4GB disk.
You must also take into account that even if it were possible, the movie would most likely look like crap due to compression and possible playback issues.

I say, improbable... and unnecessary if a proper media player is ever made for use with SD cards.
