    I just downloaded the new "ESE_MD*" then tried downloading it to Nintendo Video.
    Problem is... The 2nd and 4th panel of my Nintendo Video doesn't have their videos anymore.. They're just blank.
    And another one is.. The videos stay the same.

    somewhere
    The videos have expiry dates, once that date is up, the video is no longer visible.

    @nintendoom: corrupt video. did the Nintendo Video app update the SD card when the download finished? Did the download from server to 3DS even finish? all problems with a working setup IS corrupt video. redownload it and replace the ones you're hosting. once you start downloading the videos from Nintendo to your PC, take a note of the estimated file size (your browser should be able to tell you what's the full size of your download is, aside from what's currently downloaded). as for your 2nd and 4th panel videos, they're probably pretty old vids, which means you haven't updated in a while. they expired when you updated, is what happened.

    @spinalcord: I've never really had videos expire on me. The only time a slot expired on me was AFTER i downloaded a few new ones and had no new video for that slot. so i guess videos does have an expiry date, but doesn't disappear until you update/replace at least one video. i'll hazard a guess that you can keep videoes for as long as you want, as long as you don't update.

    That could potentially mess things up. If you have to delete videos, delete the app instead. But go to Data Management and delete any extra content first (they're probably the videos). Then redownload the app from eShop.

    Maybe with this you can get back to loading old videos, like starting from scratch, but not so sure about it either. You can then try putting in old videos in their respective slots, just make sure you go from oldest to newest. If you upload a new video to your 3DS, you won't be able to put the old ones back for that slot.

    Probably easier and safer to forget about the videos you lost and just get what's currently available for those slots you lost. Anyways if the first video downloaded fine, but the 2nd and 4th slot didn't, then you only have to replace those--they're the ones that didn't download correctly.

    They expired on me....I was in Canada and activated Nintendo Video, I had the Smurfs trailer, All is Not Lost ( I liked this one [​IMG]) and Bearshark, all of them slowly were deleted by Nintendo video itself

    ...I'll hazard a guess that you being in Canada means you didn't have to host the videos for yourself because you have access to US servers right off the bat. this means that any time your 3DS is within range of a spotpass access point, Nintendo Video can update itself, hence make your videos expire. for us located outside the prescribed US regions, we are off the grid for the Nintendo Video servers. this means we potentially can keep the videos as long as we want, so long as we don't let Nintendo Video update.

    i mean, i've had those same videos for more than a month without access to net, and i only lost the videos (like empty 4th slot) when i updated slots 1 to 3.
