Youtube DS - Play Youtube videos on your DS!

Hey guys, lately I've been working on playing Youtube videos on a DS. As you can see in the video below, I got it working. I think I'll try to improve it some more if I have some time and add a gui to make it actually possible to search for videos.


You can download a preview here, if you want to try it out: https://github.com/Gericom/YoutubeDS/raw/master/YoutubeDS.nds
It might take a few tries, because the video info parser does not work very good yet.

DS is capable of a lot of stuff.

I have to ask, are you using GL hardware or 2D ?

good work!
I am using the 2D hardware, because one can not write to texture memory outside of vblank and switching textures is also not as easy as changing the base address for the 2d engine. (I am using a 5 frame framequeue)

does not compile correctly on Windows XP:

and, that from my homebrew experience, means something between Windows 7 and Windows XP causes bloated relocated code. It has very little to do with the actual code (unless obviously you try to relocate more than 32K code on ITCM or 16K code on DTCM), where the same symptom should happen.

How....How in god's name did you get this to work on a DS? Wifi speeds are like 56k territory. There's no way it streams them directly? Does it download the stream from YouTube first then play it or does it somehow manage to actually stream it real time? Cause damn if you got that to work, hats off to you! :P

Guess who is going to the front page :D This is cool as hell. Again, I wish this was a few years ago, before the 3DS youtube app, but hot dang this is cool. I remember someone else working on something like this a long time ago, or at least attempting to. Something about trying to get youtube down to its lowest quality and the have the site send over chunks at a time.

I'm just wondering if it works in DSi mode... If so, then you could get it working with WPA/WPA2 APs!

Incredibly impressive considering the limitations of both the DS itself and the DSwifi library which severely bottlenecks transfer. Just getting video and audio to work on the DS is a chore, streaming it to the system is incredible - I'd know, I fooled around with coding a video player on the DS, with little success. Well done!
