Nintendo Video is Region locked :(

I live overseas but I have a NA 3ds, and after downloading the app and checking my connection, it said the videos weren't able to download based on my location! I can understand this for something like Netflix but for a free service this sucks.

Sorry man. If it makes you feel any better, Nintendo Video is totally worthless even if you CAN download the videos.

Yup, it checks your IP-adress.

There are tools to change your IP-adress (re-direct), though.

Not worth the effort :P. It sucks but I can probably manage.

U.S. territories are once again forgotten as well. I live on Guam and it says it's not available here either. -.-

Same problem. Tried with proxy servers and DNS. Works for web browser on the 3DS but not Nintendo video.


Anyone found a solution yet?

^The server spoofing tutorial at http://3dbrew.org/wiki/Nintendo_Video is definitely not easy to understand. Does anybody have a very easy and detailed step-by-step process specifically for the Nintendo 3DS?
