    It hasn't been 6 months since Nintendo discontinued the quite broken YouTube app for the 3DS, or it seems like YouTube themselves will also be pulling the plug on the web browser version according to a GoNintendo source for both the Wii U and the New 3DS.

    "The end of an era, my friends. If you visit YouTube on the Wii U browser, you can watch all the videos you want...for now. Reader AlienboyVA has let us know that visiting YouTube in the browser now gives you a notification that support is going to end soon. No specific date is given, so make sure you get in there and enjoy the support while you still can!"

    When you visit YouTube, a yellow banner should appear saying "This browser will soon no longer be supported. Update your browser to continue using YouTube." Luckily, the YouTube app on Wii U uses the TV version, so that hopefully won't be discontinued any time soon.
    And unfortunately, the alternative front-end Invidious ends on a cliff as well, with the error code 032-2901 on the 3DS, and error code 112-2035 on the Wii U being displayed when you open the player. Enjoy while it lasts!

    Still kinda sad, though.

    More 'End of an Era' type thing than actual disappointment, but still.

    Kind of worrying about what youtube is doing, I'm concerned with them making it more difficult to pull videos for offline viewing/preservation. I hope my worries are for nothing.

    I'm pretty sure it's more because they don't want to spend money supporting a version of YouTube 3 people use.

    hopefully, but I've been getting a message on firefox youtube "This version of YouTube is going away soon. Switch to the new YouTube"
    (I use a firefox youtube plugin which slashes the amount of normal loading times)

    Yeah, they wanna switch everyone to that godawful tablet view. I guess so many people use smartphones now, they want to abandon PC users.

    Really surprised YT lasted as long as it did on the WiiU lol
    Meanwhile the Switch doesn't have a messaging system nor Miiverse.....but $20/$35 per year for a FANTASTIC online service!

    The only thing we “cared” about were videos in 3D, and uhh...


    Yeah, that’s it.

    It's the official 3d movie converter from nintendo. You can convert any 3d movie in a format that uses Movie Viewer, another official tool.

    The tool's name is "3D Movie Viewer with Mobiclip SDK".
    The 3D movie's format is moflex.
    Hope this helps.

    Why would anyone use the web browser instead of the native wii u youtube app though?
    And who still watches youtube on a 3DS lol

    Youtube-dl has worked great for years and is been constantly updated.

    I wouldn't worry personally.

    After the recent roms armageddon, I'm very jumpy. Youtube could flip a switch any second, hell the entire service could get flushed tomorrow. Nothing is promised.

    "Nintendo dropping support for web versions of YouTube for the Wii U and New 3DS"

    Would it not be YouTube themselves dropping support? Nintendo doesn't manage their YouTube page.
