    As the title mentioned, it's in the eShop now.

    I've had it crash on me more than twice now, just saying. lol, and as expected, the quality on videos is terribad.

    Still having problems trying to download from the EU eShop. Still prefer watching Youtube on laptop but this should be a nice addition.

    Does it support 3D videos?

    Nope. Tried about five different videos. The eShop doesn't mention anything about it being 3D-compatible either.

    Sorry, gonna watch YouTube on the Wii U game pad, at least that has 480p and good audio :creep: Lol @ them thinking YT on the 3DS was a good idea.

    I honestly don't believe they believed it a good idea. Everybody asked for it, now everybody can shut the fuck up about it. Nintendo obviously didn't think 240p video and audio would be good.

    Well, I just watched a cat video that was nothing but a veiled advertisement for Tidy Cats. It was funny at least so I guess I'll give this app my approval. :P

    It actually isn't that bad. Some videos look like 144p and some look like 240p. I think the 3DS could do better but it's an okay start. We need 1080p on a ~3.5 inch screen from Nintendo! Yeah right. lol

    The only reason I waited for it was the posibility of running 3DS videos as EVERY 3D SCREEN CAN :angry:

    You all wanted a youtube app, you got it, you all hate it. 10/10 community.

    Iv not tried it yet but i can only imagine how bad it is since it barely can load webpages with alot of text, let alone a video. Luckily i have my Wii-u and Vita if i desperately needed a portable way to watch youtube videos (Both of which stream youtube excellent)

    So when are we getting miiverse? Thats what i want!

    So that basically invalidates your opinion on whether or not it sucks, right? :P

    No. I still sucks. 240p video, audio issues and laggy menus. Sounds good to me.
