    Hey all,

    I'm looking for suggestions for adding content to my kid's 3DS'. I'm currently adding some music they would like, have games on the DSTwo and R4i cards, etc.

    I want to add some videos, but I'm not sure what to add. My kids like anything Mario, and pretty much any cartoon. I was thinking about adding some episodes of Super Mario 3 and Super Mario World since they clock in at slightly over 10 minutes each, and with cutting out the intro it should fit fine, and I might add some funny YouTube videos also, but I'm not sure where to look. I was tempted to add some Dorkly YouTube videos, but most of those have pretty bad language :S. What has everyone else added?

    Also, is there anything else to do? I have the Pokedex 3D app, which is almost filled on both systems, and tons of demos which really do help me choose what games to purchase in the future.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions, and my kids thank you too lol.

    Theres a 3D video converter around here somewhere. If you have 3D movies you can convert them to run on the 3DS.

    Sir, if you haven't tried Super Mario Bros. Z episodes yet, I would highly recommend them. The episodes integrate Sonic and Mario franchises perfectly along with a Dragon Ball Z fighting style.

    Yeah, I have it, just not sure what to convert :S

    Ooh very nice! I just checked out an episode and my kids will go crazy for this, and under 10 mins too! Just wish there were voices.

    Don't worry. There ought to be more character voices further in the episodes, but it'll still be text-reading. The video project has been abandoned a long time ago though, so it's actually not complete :\ Better than nothing nonetheless.

    Is it things in general to do on the 3DS or just things like videos? If in general, I made a topic a bit ago that was sort of an index, it should have a thing or two you can find for them (including that video converter)

    It should be on the second page (I cant link from this device, sorry :()

    Nope, that's the limit of the video camera's recording, so it doesn't accept anything more. You can always just split a 20 minute video into two 10 minute vids and so on.
