    It's very nice to get a video demonstration of homebrew (or any program for that matter) before you download it but there are only very few links to videos on FileTrip.

    Not sure if this will get any response (although for everyone's best, hopefully), but if you make or come by any videos of homebrew then please post them here so that they can be added to homebrew descriptions by moderators (I happen to be one, and will add any videos posted here unless someone else does before me).

    Does this count for any homebrew - even videos that although does not relate directly to the program in question, it is included in the video ??

    for example - the video below is for showing LemmingDS running as a plugin on a DSTwo

    Would this be suitable for LemmingDS download on filetrip ??

    As long as it properly demonstrates gameplay it serves its purpose.

    While quality is optimal, the main point of watching a video would be to just get a good idea of what the homebrew is or, in the case of ports, how adequate the homebrew is to its original. Quality isn't necessarily needed for this.

    Added your video with a time tag that skips to Lemmings DS itself.

    Thanks for posting it.

    I should think about implementing that next...

    To be honest, I'd probably try out more homebrew besides emulators if I could know what the gameplay was like before I went through all the trouble of downloading and installing them on my micro sd. This sounds like a good idea.

    Nice, a feature could definitely be a much better solution than simply having links in the bottom of the descriptions.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    Wow, we go from some homebrews being promoted without even a screenshot to FMV -- this is great news for the brew scene if its implemented.

    does it have to be game or can you make videos about any homebrew programs ?

    I would guess that would mean anything that can be downloaded from Filetrip that is an app (e.g 'ModMii' program or 'SD Card Formatter') or game counts

    As long as the video shows the program/game 'in action' so people can see what it does (whether on a PC or on a game system like the DS) IMHO it doesn't matter what it is

    Well I thought I'll see how many Homebrew i have that will work in an Emulator (I used DeSmuMe for this one since it has a video capture feature)
    Seems like there's not many (especially those that 'need' extra data or INI files) that like the emulator but these did

    Every ExtenDS
    Meteora (this one is quite long since I also included some of the tutorial)

    Added those as well.

    In my opinion you are really helping the community, homebrew demonstration videos have always seemed pretty rare.

    Nice, added all of these too.

    Managed to catch the version of Moonshell being displayed on your upper screen as 2.10 stable 6 seconds into your video so I assume that is the correct version, Stevetry.
