    I just notice that we are lacking a video player for 3ds, there are few photo players. i know its not a matter of power because i see that the N3ds seems to handle html5 1080p videos(or at least dose a good job of downscale it) on the web browser.

    Sorry to hear but apparently it's not a real priority so you can I'll have to port it yourself

    i recently found Zootopia 3d for 3ds apparently it took them 10 hours to encode!!

    Isnt there already streaming video to 3ds and moblex tool converter?

    If you're not going above 240p, why bother with mp4!?!?!?!

    If such a player allowed for 3D output, there would be a legit benefit to having a video player on the 3DS as typically phones don't output in 3D like that.

    You can either
    • Convert the video to JPGV and make it a cia (or I think there was a homebrew that can play them)
    • Convert the video to AVI using 3DS Video and watch with Nintendo 3DS Camera.
    • Convert the video to .moflex with the Mobiclip thing (Requires signing the Nintendo NDA) and put them in a cia.
    Sadly all three of these options require a computer :(

    Oh! Forgot to mention.
    You can also upload the video to a server and go to the url with the web browser. :)

    Well, if any video you're looking for is online, I'm willing to guess you can just use N3DS's web browser to navigate to the page where the video is located.
