    Don't know who else tried it but seriously, it's pretty shitty.
    It's incredibly slow, it crashes constantly and makes you reboot your 3DS and the quality sucks (which is kind of understandable since the screen isn't that high res).

    Now I know there are far better devices to watch youtube-videos on, but still.
    Is it really that hard to make a decent Youtube-app for the 3DS?

    It seems strange that nintendo hasnt thought to go hmm a 3DS can play video.. 3D video lets make a youtube app that allows 3D video streaming.. Its beyond dumb.

    I haven't experienced any crashes myself. Are you running it normally or via emuNAND? Either way, it is what it is. Wii's YouTube channel also left a lot to be desired and had constant buffering problems. Keep in mind that this is not a simple playback program. It's an interface for remotely loaded videos, searches, etc. I'd give the 3DS a break. A break I couldn't give the Wii. Anyway, I'm surprised they brought YouTube to 3DS. Pretty much everyone owns phones which work so much better for this kind of thing.

    It's shitty, but the app has a bug that lets it stream MP4-format videos on the web. So it's not all bad.

    No apps = sucks
    make the apps = sucks

    honestly almost everything related to video streaming is sucks, because mostly need 3rd party plugin (adobe flash).

    That is more google to blame than nintendo... unless nintendo artificially limited the 3DS SDK somehow.

    Like manlego posted, aren't all complaints about this app supposed to go in that thread? We could have hundreds of threads complaining about the shittiness of the Youtube app. This is why it should all be in the aforementioned thread.
