    Yeah, I am just wondering (as I don't have my card to try it out personally, yet.) which is better for video playback? I suppose for ease of transcoding it would be the DStwo and for quality it would be the 3ds, though only having 10 minute videos seems like an annoyance.

    Also how good is moonshell compared to both of these? I used it a number of years ago and there was quite a lot of pixel blocking and lag, never could get the dpg videos to look good enough...

    Also can the dstwo take advantage of the bigger resolution that the 3ds has? IE will I be able to watch videos non cropped?

    DSTwo runs in DS-mode, meaning it runs at the lower resolution and speeds and junk. 3DS appears to be better, despite the 10-minute limit or whatever (people just split the files).

    Personally I would go with the 3DS, even if i have to deal with the 10 minute limit.
