    Last week, a survey was given asking if users would like the ability to stream TV shows and movies on their iPhone and it looks like its the DS's turn this week.

    Streaming to the DS? [​IMG]

    It'd take forever to load and it'd be very low quality.

    The screen size is not something I would use to watch movies.

    If it would be streamed it have to have a resolution of 10x10 pixels to run smooth,I think.

    That's pretty much the DS' native resolution, as anybody with an iPlayer would tell you [​IMG]

    I know, I'm thinking Netflix has no idea of the DS's system specs.

    Nah, not going to happen. Has to be a fake rumor. The DS can't even handle all the popular movie types. It has to use .dpg. I know TunaVIDS supports .avi, but most movies use MPEG, and FLV. How would you even access Netflix? Guess it's either going to be a cart or DSiware for DSi's only.

    Even .dpg looks like total crap. I can't see how people would pay for it.

    Watching videos on the DS isnt crap... I used to do it on a SanDisk Sansa e250, THAT was crap.

    Take the Tuna-viDS for Moonshell2 file on FileTrip, and a copy of FFMPEG, use FFMPEG to encode to an AVI file with 2-pass 128k XviD video at 10FPS and 64k stereo MP3 audio and you have a nice ~1MB/minute video! (Youd need an iPlayer to do higher framerates [​IMG] )

    I watch LOTS of videos on my DSi this way... no iPlayer needed!

    I say let's stick to a television.
    I don't mind the first television either.

    I really don't see this happening. The DSs CPU power is limited and the wireless ethernet interface is capped to 11Mbit/s.

    [​IMG] Most likely this would be too slow to be possible. On the DSi it would be more ... usable to an extent but still crappy.
