You can

You can, but it's generally not worth the effort. They have to be encoded into a special format that really only the DS uses. You can't have the resolution very high, the audio will sound tinny, and you typically have to buy a special media player cartridge that has a MicroSD slot on it that you can load the video on.

You'd be better off getting a PSP if you want a portable game system that can play videos.

you need to get a flash card form a site such as then either download or generate the movie for that flash card. movies take up a lot of space so get a larger memory like 4 or 8 gigs
