    The PSP can't open them either, without homebrew anyway, and PSPTube refuses to work for me so I never cared much.

    THEN YOUR DOING IT WRONG!

    try ULTIMATE PSPTUBE instead! [​IMG]

    as per topic ..nope no way to view youtube videos other than downloading them to a pc first and then converting them to DPG and playing them back in moonshell [​IMG]

    did you even read the page? THE DS ISN'T POWERFUL ENOUGH. And anyway, the only official Internet Browser for DS has been discontinued for its lack of popularity. You really think YouTube is gonna bother creating a website especially for homebrew and a discontinued, unpopular browser? Common sense - least common of all the senses...

    But is there a possiblity of a homebrew internet being created to view flash videos even though the ds wasn't bulit for it?

    Well, in theory anyone can do anything, but this is very unlikely.

    Simply put: NO

    Realize this, the DS only has 66mhz of pure processing power (100mhz if u combine the arm7 cpu) and only 4mb of RAM. So the answer again is NO.

    If you wanna browse the net, get an iphone or a netbook or something like that. My 10 yr old cell phone surfs the net better then my ds.

    DS = homebrew, games, media.

    well... if you open up the dsi/ds lite then is there any way you can change the processor?



    Btw, the ds is kinda fast compared to my computer (790 MHz)

    YES, THERE IS A BROWSER!

    It's called Moonshell 2*!

    *videos need to be pre-converted to be viewed

    Basically what I was gonna say. Any YT vid can be downloaded to your PC with a simple plug-in through Firefox or other programs, converted to DPG and then watched on your DS, as long as you know what you're doing.

    dsvideo works without lags.
    sadly, its quality is so SHIT!!!
    moonshell or dsmplay are the better options for video play
