    My laptop overheats, and I figured I'd try using the Internet Browser on my N3DS to watch videos. I tested it with a couple YouTube videos and a couple episodes off of an anime streaming site, and they all worked, to my delight. (I hate how the Wii only does YouTube videos and no other players.)

    The other day, I wanted to watch a video that was a recording of a stream. The video was a typical YouTube video, so I fully expected it to work. The video in particular is set up to where you can see the gameplay on the left, and the stream's chat window on the right so you can see both sides of whatever conversations come up.

    Anyways, I wanted to watch the video, but ended up getting no actual video, only audio. The upper screen showed a speaker icon instead. I watched a couple Minecraft videos, and they ran just fine, so I don't think that it's a resolution issue or anything.

    I figure that there's something wrong with the video, whether it be the screen size or something, but I don't know what it is. I'm not demanding a fix, but I tried looking up the reason, and couldn't find anything. Could somebody please explain to me why the video doesn't work? It's a bit sad that one of my favorite YouTubers can't be watched on my N3DS.

    What the hell? I wanted to watch a race of a Zelda Classic game that randomizes item and dungeon locations using the Zelda Outlands overworld. (ZC videos look amazing on the 3DS.) The video itself is on YouTube, so I can't understand why it wouldn't play on my 3DS. Honestly, if I wanted to watch porn, why on earth would I decide to use a teeny-tiny low-resolution screen rather than my laptop? I'd just download the video via KeepVid or a downloaded video capture program, and watch it off the hard drive so that the laptop doesn't overheat.
