You absolutely can. You just need to buy a homebrew cartridge that works or DSi. Avoid any that don't specifically mention the DSi, as the old crop only works with DS lite and DS phat.

Here's two:

In either of the models I mentioned, you also need a microsd card (you can get that from anywhere that sells digital camera or computer stuff).

Once you have the card, you'll need some homebrew for it. For movies, try this:
http://dsvideo.recoil.org/ Just download it and put it on your memory card. You'll also need to download their conversion software to convert your movies for it.

don't listen to the others. you don't have to have homebrew. go to this site and look under the movies. just download the movies you want. i don't know if you have to unzip the files but once you got the movies just click and drag them into your r4i in the games folder. when you turn on your dsi, click on the r4i then go to media or the second square and look under games and you'll be able to find your movies. just click and play. hope this helps. For R4i only!

okay, i had the same question as you until i got a dsi. you can't. guardianfox is right, but what he didn't mention that there are fakes of those special cards, such as the r4i cards. i bought an r4i and at first i thought i had wasted a lot of money on a fake, until i downloaded all the software(which was a lot) so i you are going for movies and have enough money then i think that the psp can play movies. i hope this helps you.
