    I'm gonna buy a DSTWO for 3DS and I want to ask if its video player is good? I heard that it can play almost video format, but I wonder if the video's quality is better than using Moonshell on R4? I tried to play a video on Moonshell and it was really bad, it's not in fullscreen and also smearing (or blur or something I don't know how to say because my English is bad lol), and of course I cant read the subtitle on any video :hateit: So I'm asking if using DSTWO would be better, maybe not fullscreen and clearly image but at least i could read the subtitle???? Thanks!
    Once again sorry for my bad English :)

    DSTWO's video player is not a 3ds video player. It is a ds video player and therefore will not take up the entire screen

    Yep. I think that it will allow you to read the subtitles (at least if they are saved as real subtitles and not integrated into the video).

    It can decode with the built in processor and obviously this means it can decode better.

    IIRC it supports up to 480p fine? Can someone confirm this?

    it is very hit and miss. anything above 240p has the chance to stutter.

    Really depends on what you're watching. Anime looks fine on either one. Television shows and movies look better with the SCDS2 media player. if you have a 3DS, you should use the built-in 3DS camera video playback. It beats both Moonshell and SCDS2.

    Yeah I know the built-in video player was really good, but the 10 mins limit is really annoying :hateit: if you want to watch some anime episodes you will have a lot of small parts, and even not in the right order :lol:
    BTW you guy really help, thanks! So that mean it would be better right?

    You could try that YouTube app trick, though that would mean streaming over wifi.

    He can upload private TV shows, too. It's okay as long as they're only private.

    with a youtube account you can have your own private "streambox"in your modern consoles, as long you have internet...
