    I just wonder if there is way to watch youtube or any kind allow to watch video. I know it sound like stupid idea. But I just wonder if there is way or none.

    To give a serious answer, there is no way.

    To be a bit of a dick, what made you think it'd be possible?

    No way as of yet. The 3DS browser does not support flash at all, so the only way it would actually happen, is if Nintendo/Youtube released an app to watch youtube videos on the 3DS.

    Hmm. Guess there is nothing with it. Guess I have to wait very long time to see video or any kind to useful.

    Well, the Wii U is getting YouTube support.

    I wonder if the 3DS will enjoy the same.

    To be even MORE of a dick, why would Nintendo be so outrageously stupid to not include such a feature on a 3D multimedia device? I'm still trying to figure that one out. Normally I wouldn't care since I have a smartphone, but I would love to be able to actually watch 3D videos.

    Maybe because Flash is cumbersome and Youtube has yet to fully convert to HTML5.

    My first smartphone didn't have flash, and Youtube worked through the dedicated android app just fine. No reason why they couldn't do the same thing here, imo.

    I don't understand why Nintendo wouldn't have added Youtube support from the beginning. With the 3D screen, Youtube would be great on the device.

    I don't think the memory available to the browser is large enough for video.

    YouTube isn't really filled with 3D support anyway.

    Either way, it is possible that YouTube comes to the 3DS now. The Wii U is getting it, together with Netflix, Amazon Video and Hulu+ (btw, Netflix and Hulu are on 3DS). So there might be a chance of Nintendo implementing it on 3DS.

    No offense, but that suggestion is getting old... seriously, it's like telling someone who wants Majora's Mask 3DS to stop whining and instructs them how to play it on N64, gamecube, or pc emulator. Duh, WE ALREADY KNOW WE CAN DO THAT, but that's not what were asking for, is it? Just saying.

    You know you're all wrong?
    I've got Flash Player running on my 3DS.
    The only thing I did was, I've put my 3DS in my microwave for 10 minutes, then I've put it in soaped water for 24 hours, and then I've threw it from the 6th floor of the Hotel, at the other side of the street.

    Once I came home, I could suddenly watch YouTube on my 3DS!
    Not only via the Browser, it even installed a YouTube App for me!

    You must do the steps exactly like I describe, even the exact times have to be correct.
    Good luck!

    I agree. It seems you can't make any suggestions or offer any criticisms of Nintendo on this site without threads being flooded with trolls. My previous phone was a piece of junk running java and it had a Youtube player. The PS Vita, IPod, Android cellphones, many older cellphones, etc. can run Youtube. I don't think it's asking for much.

    I don't see how people can defend Nintendo not adding basic features. They also have yet to add an achievement system while every other modern console and portable gaming system and even IOS and Android now have achievement systems.

    Kinda off topic, but I'm not 100% sure how I would feel about an achievement system for Nintendo... although if it was implemented "Sakurai-style" (the kind seen in Kirby Air Ride, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Kid Icarus: Uprising), I would seriously want that in a heartbeat. :D
