Yes, provided you have a player that can play whatever format you're using ^___^

Did you not even realize this is the Wii U forums, and not a PC/Mac forum?

To the OP, no you are not able to do it like that because the Wii U does not have a video player outside of the only available method, which is playback of MP4s through the web browser. The web browser cannot access the USB ports, so it won't work that way either.

It's actually even more impossible than @Discostew suggests. It's not just that is there no way to access use the browser, the only thing that allows such playback, to access USB storage. The Wii U also formats any mass storage you attach to it before use AND it doesn't support thumbdrives anyway. In short there's all kinds of no to this.

@SMEXIZELDAMAN
It's the Wii U section...............

There's a reason why this is in the Wii U section.
