Hey Guys,

I've seen that you still can access the Browser on the latest Switch Firmware 4.0.1.
Is there something useful you can do with it?
Youtube does not work anymore it seems gives a 2809-1212 Error Code.
Is there any other way to play videos?

You can play HTML games, browse some sites, but I think the only way to play YouTube videos is to access the browser via the Facebook link method and not through the DNS change=>connection test registration method....thing...

YouTube videos will not play on higher firmwares unfortunately. It doesn't matter what method you use. I believe it was patched in either 3.0.0 or 3.0.1.

You need to use the FB link page in order to redirect the switch to your google + account, where you could have shared youtube videos that you can play this way, there are many videos on youtube that explain how to do so, and while this method is a bit complicated, it has the merit to work on 4.0.1.

Edit : Here's a link to a video that explains the method to follow :

Actually there is, but it only allows you to stream the video (there's no sound that outputs from the switch), and the framerate is not very good (You can play games like undertale pretty fine but forget about 3d fast-paced games). If you're still interested, you may want to check this : https://gbatemp.net/threads/remx-launcher.478573/
You'll need to use the dns method in order to use the web browser.

Thank you man, unfortunately the performance is just too bad.

Yeah, that's why I'm waiting for Rainway to be released on Nintendo Switch, it will have a way better quality. Hopefully Nintendo won't reject the project..

    Offer to clean house, wash windows, walk dogs, anything. You gotta have drive in life to get anything. Nothing is just given to you, atleast when you get older.

    I remember when I was 14, I lived by a Coffee delivery service, and I asked the owner if I could work, and he had me wash the trucks on weekends to make money.

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Most kids don't want to work nowdays, they want everything handed to them. And to think you're poor just cause you don't own a Switch is ridiculous.
