    Behind you breathing heavily
    I was curious if it's possible to make a homebrew youtube app, so it can play better quality than the original?

    FYI - to be give more info, a homebrew youtube app that works on the O3DS and plays at least 360p.
    Anything would be better than drunk Picasso 240p videos

    Technically you could. Nobody's gotten homebrew video playback quite right yet though.

    Play from the web browser, it loads much better than the app.

    Not possible on O3DS.

    I thought lpp-3ds could do video playback at full speed.

    Yes, but on a very rare and huge size format!... Other issue is talking about streaming video!

    The 3ds screen is 240 pixels high. Playing more than 240p would require a magician.

    I think he means highly compressed 240p video. If it wasn't so compressed it would look alright.

    Doesn't have much use on N3DS, O3DS maybe. However, I don't know if it the O3DS can handle as much bitrate; it might not be possible to make a YouTube app that's significantly better.
