    Maybe it has been asked b4
    The Nintendo video app can be downloaded frmo eshop
    How likely is that you can put our own videos (2D or 3D) in the SD card and play them via this app? [​IMG]

    it would kick butt to have an app to play ripped 3d movies on the 3DS.... even if its on homebrew...

    Homebrew for the 3DS will come after the 3DS gets hacked.

    When it's hacked, GBATemp will be sure to keep that information on the front page.

    So don't worry; Maybe in the distant future. [​IMG]

    Haha. I know it is impossible now. Just wondering is it very difficult for homebrew developers to make that happened? [​IMG]

    Well, homebrew is really finicky, and the difficulty can depend on how the system works.

    We literally don't know how we're gonna open the 3DS yet, so homebrew can range from rather simple to make to impossible.

    Could you setup your pc as a fake server and send something to the video player to 'download'?
    Ill take a 3D movie over the magic trick anyday!

    Several very big very key issues to this...

    #1: The 3DS and the Nintendo servers have a fairly complex handshake system. That is they both have to make sure that both are real before they'll do anything. This includes tossing some encryption and identification keys back and forth. No one knows yet exactly how this works.

    #2: No one knows the format the video/audio files are in. It's fairly obvious that they will have to be compressed with some sort of codec, but we won't know which one. It's not likely based on something with an open distribution license as nintendo hates those (with the exception of the latest 3ds web browser, which nintendo found itself forced to use since licensing a crappier version of Opera wasn't working out for them). That leaves them using some sort of proprietary format... of which there are many and aren't available for the public to easily access... making encoding our own videos for the 3DS a no-go

    #3: Like everything else on the 3DS, the videos will be encrypted. If it's stored anywhere on the 3DS at all, it'll be signed with each system's unique private key, and the transfer between server and 3ds will likely be encrypted as well.

    Gone is the age when companies would intentionally go "That doesn't really need to be encrypted, no one will likely notice or take advantage of that!"

    I'm pretty sure GBATemp's server will explode when a hack is found.

    Hou about pc side making netflix conection ip redirect to a private ip in your pc and hosting movies via a personal web server? Since 3ds can play netflix via the app cant we have a webpage load on the 3ds webbrowser that use the same codec and flash to view online movieS?

    Perhaps you should read threads before replying? Because your question has already been answered two posts from yours.

    And well, I don't think that plan the OP exposed is quite possible. Now everything is encrypted. It even went to a point where Sony encrypted a robot dog firmware, as silly as it may sound! Not to mention, the Wii was a complete Swiss cheese, so I think Nintendo learnt from their mistakes...

    well, koji2009
    the handshake could be repeated and monitored with a paket tracer over and over until a pattern emerges, or maybe if you could find the "unique" private key, you could compare the encription with other system's private keys until you find a pattern there.

    nothing is impossible, sometimes it just takes eternity.

    The problem here is: How do you find the PRIVATE key? It is hidden, and no-one knows where to look, and then ofcourse the key itself is most likely encrypted too.. The 1st part makes sense tho, but how about this: Read up on the Nintendo Video page on 3dbrew and look at the part where it says that you can send your own (original Nintendo Video videos) videos from a private server. It already is done. but the videos itself are encrypted too.



    And for now: LOCK PLEASE
