iPlayer Turns DSi Into Media Machine

The Nintendo DS and DS Lite had problems with piracy due to the introduction of flash carts like the R4 and M3, although some might argue in the favor of needing those to run homebrew software while augmenting the DS to become a portable media player of sorts. Well, the DSi is not exempt from this either, thanks to the iPlayer flash cart that aims to turn the DSi into a media machine. What makes the iPlayer interesting is its ability to support a wide range of video formats including AVI, RVMB, MOV, DIVX, MPEG and FLV, doing away with the need to convert files that you’ve downloaded off the Net elsewhere. Nice to know that piracy is not given a foothold here since illegal ROMs will not work, but homebrew ones can.
