    No, because there is currently no way to view videos without Flash or HTML5 right now. 3DS supports neither.

    Nintendo Video is the only way you can view videos "online". (It downloads it from the internet, so I think it counts as online)

    The problem is that Nintendo Video is region locked and you can only use it on a US or other compatible server.

    Don't think so... Unless Nintendo really has learned it (which is unlikely)

    ^ you just lost audio, is all.

    the only true streaming video on the 3DS is found on eShop.

    no. Nintendo Video downloads video and KEEPS them on the SD card. streaming videos only buffer the videos, but don't keep them permanently. one of the advantages of Nintendo Video app, assuming the videos are worth keeping.

    ummm, the 3DS has html5 now... but how would one use that for watching videos? a bit uneducated on html5's capabilities.

    and a bit frustraded that I can't quote people on here with the 3DS's browser :(

    According to Wiki, the 3DS browser does have certain elements of HTML5.

    It has basic html5 capabilities, just not the capabilities needed for things like Youtube.
