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).
- Video MPEG4, H.264.
- Hardware acceleration with Y2R for YUV -> RGB conversions.
Available in 3DSX/SMDH format.
The video has to be named test.mp4 and be placed at the root of your SD card.
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.
