3Damnesic is a proof of concept media player for 3DS using ffmpeg, capable of playing MPEG4 and H264 video (no sound).

The project is no longer in development (abandoned).

Features

  • Video MPEG4, H.264.
  • Hardware acceleration with Y2R for YUV -> RGB conversions.

Installation

Available in 3DSX/SMDH format.

The video has to be named test.mp4 and be placed at the root of your SD card.

User guide

Use a video with dimensions multiple of 8 for best performance.

Videos up to 1024x1024 are supported (but will not run fullspeed and only if width<800, if you set up the framebuffers to be using RGBA).

This homebrew runs MPEG4 better than H.264 (H.264 is ~4 times slower). Some stats (video only, old 3DS):

  • 400x240 mpeg4 - 37fps.
  • 400x240 h264 - 16fps.

Known issues

No sound.
