    This is my proof of concept for playing custom videos on the Nintendo 3DS directly from the Home Menu.

    First I converted my video to GBA format using Meteo:

    METEO Avi-2-GBA Mpg Video Codec

    Then I converted that GBA file to CIA using Riku's GBA Rom Converter:

    [Release] AGB_FIRM Signature Patcher + GBA ROM Converter

    And after installing the newly made CIA, I installed it to both sysNAND and emuNAND, and the rest is in the video!


    Download the CIA I made and test it out yourself!

    Keep in mind that if you do convert a video using this method, the .GBA file you use shouldn't be bigger than 32MB, so that's the main downside. Still, this is a nice step forward in playing videos directly from the Home Menu :)

    Holy ****! Amazing! The only thing that would be good if possible is create .GBA files with more than 32 MB.

    I actually tried converting a 20~ minute video, and the converter gave me an error, but the file was saved anyway, and was around 130MB. So I went ahead and tested it in the emulator and the video seemed to run fine, while the sound was just beeping noises. Also, trying to convert that ROM using Riku's converter gave me an error saying that I chose an invalid ROM, so yeah, someone might want to look into that.

    Even though the video size is only small for now this is a good start that will hopefully lead onto something bigger.

    Thanks for sharing

    Yeah, took them down because this is extremely outdated. Now we have moflex conversions.
