I have an R4 for 3DS card for my Nintendo DSi XL system. I bought it about a year ago, so I am pretty well versed in what it and can not do. Thanks to a bunch of reading I’ve done online, I have also been able to find out how to have it do some things that are not even advertised by the stores that sell them. These cards are great, and I highly recommend them to anyone and everyone.
I can use all of the freeware games and apps on the r4 for 3ds, without any issues or problems at all. But the one thing I have had a whole lot of trouble with is being able to have homebrew browser that I use to surf the net to somehow play back youtube videos on my DSI system. To be honest, I have almost given up, so I am writing this in hopes that someone else out there with an R4 for 3DS card or similar card will have some tips or perhaps a method to actually load youtube and play back the videos from there.
Why do I think it CAN play videos? Well, I can get on facebook with the browser, post some tweets on my twitter account and browse pretty well every single site I have wanted to visit so far – except you tube. The browser just dies whenever the page finished loading.
I know that I can download the videos from youtube and convert them and then copy them over to the micro SD card, but it would be really nice just to be able to actually go to youtube, watch the videos there, and not have to download and copy them over.
If it can’t be done, that’s okay too. I just figured that there might be one of your out there on the internet that maybe have some trick or some other app that will enable the videos to play back. If not, well, at least I tried, right? There are like close to a thousands apps, so I could very well have missed the one that lets you browse youtube.
I will also be posting some helpful tips, hints and some how-to articles on how to get the most out of your r4 for 3ds card, so make sure you come back and check those out. Hopefully I can help someone with something that they may be having issues doing on their r4 3ds cards.
