    Can't, there's no support for it.
    There damn well should be but Nintendo aren't exactly that smart.

    They can't make money off it, so they don't support it. That's how Nintendo is thinking.

    Oh yeah, the same way Nintendo make money through Nintendo video, or the installed music player.

    Nintendo Video is basically an advertisement app. Companies pay Nintendo money to promote their videos/movies through the 3DS. An own video player would compete with Nintendo Video and possibly take away viewers/future customers, which an mp3 player does not.

    I wish. What the heck, Nintendo? Stupid single-use mentality. It's not the 90s / GameBoy. I hope they enable support for it. At this point they should be pumping it with software updates and features to stay alive.

    I don't know why it's taken this long to get a decent response to this question.

    Yes you can watch videos on your 3DS. As long as your flashcard can run Moonshell you can watch videos on it, but the video file needs to be formatted in a special way.

    If you have a flashcart and a homebrew video player, then you can ONLY watch 2D videos. The only way to watch 3D videos is to go through Nintendo.

    Probably the only reason Nintendo hasn't allowed for open 3D viewing is because... There really isn't much mainstream 3D video now, is there? It wouldn't be the most popular thing for many users, and it would just be a waste of time to develop. Now, in 2-3 years, and if 3D becomes the big thing...

    Then maybe.

    NBGI will release a Tekken 3D movie for 3DS in the future. Although I think the Gundam and Ridge Racer 3DS they've released suck.
