    @hamohamo
    Basic answer, no.
    O3DS can't handle it.

    I guess you got a basic answer.
    Try google?
    Another thing you can try is downgrading to 9.2; I think that's the best FW to play videos.

    acutally you used to be able to but they patched it so you cant load anything outside of google login / youtube.com to patch tubehac. i remember using the youtube app for a browser all the time on o3ds (i was upset cause one patch made it so you cant type in item boxes anymore)

    Oh, I thought they meant you can do what you're asking but on a N3DS. Obviously it's common knowledge the N3DS plays videos. Lol.

    Oh, I wasn't aware it isn't working anymore, that's all I found when I searched.

    Yeah, I 'memba that. I think if you have CFW on 9.2 you can still do that? I remeber before I bought my N3DS XL I had two EMUNAND SD cards for my O3DS with Rei an RxTools with Rei on 10.3 and RxTools on 9.2 and the 9.2 could still load YT in the browser.

    Well, Google is a pretty 'decent' search engine. It 'helps' a lot of people.

    Really, check my response to what I quoted in this post.

    You might also want to check if youtube changed their format. I'm not 100% sure if they did, but I was able to load the mobile site on my O3DS. Try it for yourself.

    It could be done with user land homebrew only, in theory.
    You would have to use an old version Downloader (like the one smea released for ironfall) and then run the old YouTube through Hans with a romhack to not check for required updates. Maybe even a romhack to set the homepage to google.

    The old version trick works in this case because Nintendo didn't add YouTube to the min-version-list (like they did for ironfall and smilebasic). They don't have to because YouTube itself enforces updates. We would just patch that out.

    Personally I always found the 3DS to sometimes lag when streaming videos, both Old and New 3DS, I use my Wii U gamepad for that!
