    Well, it's rather a lolprogram than something useful, but recently I've written a simple client-server program that can do this:



    it just sends screenshots via lz77 compressed bitmaps that are scaled to 256px (or 128px like in the linked video) rather than using i.e mpeg4, but I think it's still plausible, because how cute is watching LoTR on the Nintendo, with smooth 3 frames per second?

    Code is here:

    I know someone already did this (probably better), but it's for the 3DS (it's written in libctru rather than libnds).

    Why though. At 3 frames per second this is useless.

    Because people do stuff like that for the sheer fun of it or for the learning experience ect.
