    Instead of complex procedure of spoofing nintendo video server to use nintendo video on 3DS outside US, i have got something very simple.
    Just access your wireless internet router and change its Primary and Secondry DNS (i got DNS settings from unblock-us) and you are ready to go. Just like that.
    Now i am using netflix on my 3ds and also download Nintendo videos from nintendo offical server.

    Good work! I like the way you think, add some pictures and create a guide, this will be useful in the future guaranteed.

    Why are you changing your DNS servers to access Netflix and Nintendo Video when you're already in the US? Or is this an advertisement? [​IMG]

    wat.
    Maybe he isn't from the US? By the looks of his profile he hasn't changed a single one so I'm guessing the default flag is US.

    Also there is no website in his post and by the looks of his other threads, he isn't a spambot.

    He's either...
    i) Advertising
    ii) Not actually in the USA
    iii) Trying to help people.

    Pick one. To op, spoof might have some hassle but it's free and fast so I'd rather use it.

    Anyone have tried this? I really can't understand how (if) this works. The DNS system have not about the connection after the query, so I really can't find how this can work.
    The DNS system is simple:
    1 - you want to connect to a nintendo server, e.g. down.nintendo.com, so first the program that are trying to access made a DNS probe to discover the IP address of down.nintendo.com - name are just to help people remember the sites, in fact what is used is the IP Number (this is the part of DNS server, they will look up for you the IP of the site, then send to application that requested).
    2 - With the IP of down.nintendo.com, the application request directly what they want from this IP - DNS has not to do here.

    Despite the fact that he may not be from the US, there is no "Default Flag", if you don't pick one you don't get one.

    Now I understand. This kind of service redirects you. When they send the DNS Answer, they not tell you the IP of down.nintendo.com (i.e.), but the IP from a server that will redirect all you traffic, so this is in fact, the same think as use a proxy, but in a transparent way.

    Haven't tried it myself yet, but I've read on other argentinian forums that this WORKS. I think you can even edit the DNS directly on the 3DS settings.

    Editing DNS setting in 3ds alone will not work. you have to change the DNS setting of your router and no need to change the setting in 3ds.
