    Niconico says i have to reconnect all the time and I can't get in after I made an account with my NNID. Is there a way to fix this? I've tried fixing my internet, but I still have to reconnect. I used google translate to tell me what it's saying, but It won't log on.

    You have to have a Japanese NNID, I assume this carries over to using the app itself. I don't know though.

    I used a Japanese NNID, still doesn't work though. I hope youtube isn't like this.

    I pretended to be in Japan at every stage (creating account, downloading, registering etc) using Google Translate, and it's letting me watch fine.

    NicoNico isn't Japan exclusive. The app itself is.
    You can browse NicoNico in English from PC if you have trouble signing up. My Polish NNID works just fine with it.

    Don't know what you're doing wrong.

    I downloaded it from the Japanese eshop, launched it with my NA account, signed in with my NNID for my NA account, and started watching.

    Well, does anyone know if their log-on servers are overfilled? The thing keeps telling me to reconnect over and over again, and there is no useful info on the niconico info page. This happened after I tried to make an account.

    I tried again, still doesn't work. I used My NNID to make an account, and i think it is trying to create my account, and it's an endless loop. And there is no option to go back and log in through a normal account.


    Yep, great app guys.

    The app works fine. Sounds like its just an isolated incident for you. Maybe your router or something is blocking the connection. Haven't seen anyone else with this problem.

    Watched some JoJo on Niconico last night, had no issues. Hell, I made my account via the switch web browser without issue. Hope it works out for you.

    I made an account for niconico on pc, and I can watch vids, and I even logged on with the switch browser that pops up when you press the info on the reconnect thing. In fact, when I typed in the wrong password, it said wrong password, when I typed it in, it said i needed to reconnect. How can something be this buggy. It seems like its only me in the entire world wih this problem.
