would it be possible to record 3ds gameplay from the 3ds itself?

    as the title says. i wanna know this mainly because i cant buy a capture card and i dont have a n3ds to use ntr cfw's built in streaming. (also if this is a thing that can be made maybe i can work on it with someone so i can learn how to make homebrew apps)

    It is possible and it can be done, but sadly the old 3ds is garbage and it would record at like 2fps.

    No. Aside from the bottleneck of writing to the SD Card, the old 3DS has no video encoder like the new 3DS and is clocked over four times as slow, on a dual core processor compared to n3DS's quad core. It's literally impossible in any way.

    So I'm guessing the New 3DS would reach around 10fps? (if it was possible)

    It is possible... MarcusD showed a proof on concept of old3ds streaming to pc.

    Did you not see the artifacting and glitches present on the video?

    Yes. Despite it streaming at like 1 frame per second, it still shows that the old 3ds can actually do it.

    Was it even one frame per second? That's more capturing snapshots periodically. Not streaming.
    This thread isn't even asking for streaming. It's asking for an on-console solution, what with the SD Card limitations poses another huge barrier.

    is this slow speed streaming that bad to the point of 1 fps on the home menu with as little going on as possible?

    I just looked back at the video. That was a lie. It doesn't hit 2.

    That be nice to have, but i guess not every console was considered to have such a feature like xbox one and ps4 can. I least expected switch to have it least for either recording cool moments or twitch/youtube streaming but if 3ds can't use built in video encoding, no hope for WII U.... wait, smash bros on wii u has video encoding for uploading to youtube, does the 3ds also do this?:unsure:

    Without the SD bottleneck, about how much FPS could the n3DS get if it recorded footage from itself and not NTR/a capture card?

    n3DS doesn't reach an SD bottleneck during using NTR. It's streaming, not saving the capture to the SD Card live (which the original post wanted to do).

    Is that impossible or improbable?
