@Svaethier Google any old film. Before 1990 preferably, you can watch most of them online for free now a days. Not sure if its exactly legal... I doubt its illegal as I'm not downloading or selling it.

do people really watch videos on their 3DS?

just watch them on your laptop, smartphone, tablet or whatever... anything is better than using the internet browser on a handheld or console..

eShop videos (when checking out a game) are absolutely fine though, looking at them all the time of course!
but not once have i used the internet browser on my 3ds..

that must be why you don't know the actual 3DS browser is worse than what you make it look
the youtube app also sucks but it can at least play videos(and as the thread is about, non-youtube videos too)

i dont want to boot up my pc just to check if the channels i subscribed to have a new video. and i dont have a smartphone to do that nor do i want a smartphone.
i use the internetbrowser a lot. for example when i wanna look into the animal crossing wiki while playing the game.

@topic
the easter egg doesnt work for me. there isnt a "download chrome" button anywhere. maybe i have to link my youtube account to google+ first? i thought i already did that when youtube began to suck real hard a few weeks ago -.-

I don't own any of those devices, so I use my 3DS for viewing videos when I'm not near my computer.

Yes, you do need to link your google+ account to the app.

Can anyone verify whether or not the update from the eShop has effected this? The flash browsing.

no. there is nothing on the web programmed for the 3DS operation system.

my youtube app was a bit different from the guy's in the article, but i was able to glitch my way there, none the less. however, the app will only work for videos if the video is supported by mobile. i've made much more use of the app when i found out about this! also, the fact that this glitch exists renders the internet app on the 3DS obsolete, because this version can run videos.

Well, idk; not only does the YouTube App crash quite often, but the display is all screwed up on it for anything other than YouTube... it's incredibly difficult to navigate non-YouTube sites through it.

plus the normal browser can be used while playing games. I use for Monster Hunter(I like to check the Monster's elemental weaknesses)

Whenever I click a video, it has the loading bar for a really long time. When the loading bar disappears (Usually after about 10 mins) the video doesn't play. Anyone know why?

Awesome, you can watch Google Play movies on the 3DS through Google Play. Its a pain in the donkey since the interface is complete junk. And when you do get there, the quality is awful... I've seen better quality on a TV from 1990. D:

It would be nice if Nintendo did make a lone browser that we could use since the current browser is pants.

I found a way to watch videos on the 3DS without the Youtube app.
But it's too complicated for you guys to hear.

@theblackdragon It took me ages to figure out what you changed lol. Didn't think donkey was profanity, swear I used it here before with no problem...

On topic, this back door really is a waste of time. You can boot up your computer quicker than sort through that mess.

be sure the video has a low resolution or it won't load(or take forever to load even a little, no one ever had the patience to see which of the two is true)
