    With the recent release of NTR, the video streaming has been vastly improved by 3-4x! This is awesome news for anyone who wants to capture their 3DS for live streaming or recording purposes. The improvements made the streaming a practical option for capturing the 3DS now! I have made a side by side comparison of the first and second preview so you can see the improvements with your own eyes.

    The games tested are:

    • A Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
    • Animal Crossing: New Leaf
    • Mario Kart 7
    • Super Smash Bros. 3DS
    You can find and download the preview here:

    Getting the streaming plugin to 70 fps would be godly enough on the next update.

    Use the headphone port on 3DS to record or connect to your speaker.

    That would be cool, but it might not be possible. Not speaking from a performance standpoint, but if the method used for the streaming is sending the video from the memory maybe the sound is handled differently and we won't be able to get it. This is speculation on my part since I'm not sure how all of this is done.
    That's a lot less convenient. I'm not saying it's unreasonable, but it's less favorable than having sound already, assuming it's possible.

    Streaming sound would still need bandwidth though which would be put to better use with improving performance.

    I agree. I'd happily sacrifice sound in the stream for a more stable video feed. It's simple enough to plug the 3DS into a PC via an audio cable for that.

    The stream was completely useless in Bravely Second before (7-11 FPS combined between the top and bottom screen), now it's a stable 27-28 FPS, and even more in battles. Capture cards are now officially worthless. :D

    I made a quick video to show a friend who's interested in capturing 3DS footage. He's really into interpolation techniques to improve framerate in Anime/Videos that are <60FPS and he ran the brief bit I gave him through it and I've got to say, I'm impressed. My network situation isn't the best so had around 30fps with drops as low as 20fps, he mentioned to me that a more constant framerate would make the interpolation better and again if he wanted to he could edit it more to speed up the footage during drops to keep the video at a steady framerate. Just food for thought for those looking to use this to make professional videos.



    Edit: Original footage for comparison sake

    You can choose how to prioritize the screens, if you want you can give top and bottom screen the same priority and they will have the same FPS, but the top screen will have lower FPS as a result, better to just disable the bottom screen unless the game uses it heavily, then the top screen will have better FPS. Many people with a capture card only record the top screen anyways.

    Technically not worthless, but worth less. Literally. The discounts have already started.

    (wait a minute, there's an overwhelming sense of déjà-vu, have I already posted this here before?)

    I know this going to sound bad but,...

    How do I get this running on my N3DS I grabbed the pack, do I just dump it all on the root, install the .cia and launch?

    10.2 FIRM works just fine though. I don't see a need for it supporting newer FIRM until Nintendo change something so the latest firmware breaks on older FIRM.

    Install the CIA, put ntr.bin on the root and launch, wait for it to finish and close BootNTR.
    Hold X+Y, enable debugger
    Open up NTR Debugger and NTR Viewer
    Find your 3DS IP, type connect('3ds ip', 8000) in the debugger and it should connect
    Type remoteplay()
    The stream should start and the debugger will disconnect with an error after a few seconds, you can now close the debugger.

    I was exaggerating, but capture cards aren't worth much now. They were always overpriced, but I wouldn't buy one for more than $50 now :P

    I think I honestly might just buy a N3DS for streaming. Better than getting a capture card.
