I was skeptical, but I tried all of the steps, and it worked.

3DS can now play videos from sites like NintendoLife.

So, basically, they could have just given us a decent web browser in the first place. :/

keep in mind that the official 3ds browser is a system app that can be used while the system is running other game/app in the background while this is a full app that needs all the system for itself.

Meowph, that's right!

Yeah I don't think the main CPU can handle games and videos at the same time

Also, easy on the all caps. We frown upon that.

Hey now wait a second... I'm not getting these two buttons at the bottom like it shows here:

There's no "settings" or "sign out" buttons for me... D:

I didn't have those buttons either, but I did have a cog looking icon at the top that will take you to the settings page.

I did it through that.

OK, so yeah, it definitely works... but viewing anything other than YouTube seems to be royally screwed up, though... it's really hard to navigate, say, NintendoLife... aaaaannnnndddd I just got an error... >.<

For some reason I don't have the Google + button, so I can't do this trick...

I've never had it crash while using this backdoor, but don't get me started on regular youtube.

I don't see how they could have missed something like this, so my guess is that it's somewhat intentional.

Maybe giving you the option to download Google Chrome and having it not work wasn't on purpose, but it makes sense that using a browser within an app makes this sort of thing work.

Very neat! Not sure how much I'll actually use this but it's still really cool.

Google, you sly company you. You know exactly what we want.

EDIT: You can watch any video you want. I wonder if I can watch movies on this thing...
EDIT 2: Yes, yes you can watch movies on this thing. It should say "Your phone is" something and it'll give you a download option underneath somewhere, click that and bingo, 240p movies.

I heard the buffer for movies though isn't good, what site have you gotten movies to work on?
