I got it to work BUT when I check the connection in Nintendo Video, it takes forever to check and then it says "Unable to connect to Nintendo servers. Try again later"

No, your laptop isn't involved, without a proxy your Network communicates directly with whatever sever it's trying to connect to.

Like this:
3DS--Your Network--Nintendo Video Server. So the Nintendo video server sees the IP address of the of the network the 3ds is connected to

With a Proxy it's like this:
3DS--Your Network--Proxy Server--Nintendo Video Server. So the Nintendo video server sees the IP address of the of the proxy server the 3ds is connected to

Here's a list of open proxy servers:

And here's a guide for creating your own proxy:

Like i said before, personally I'd recommend creating your own proxy sever as that should result in a much faster connection.

Your connection could be too slow, try another server or make your own.

All of this was a waste. When I tried going into the eShop, after loading for 5 seconds, it said, "This service is unavailable. Try again later." Only the web browser seems to work with proxy settings. Netflix doesn't work either.

I have the same problem. I also tried a proxy which works for the web browser.
Didn't work for Nintendo video.
Tried a us DNS server. Worked for web browser.
Didn't work for Nintendo Video.


First one I got was "Unable to connect to servers try again later."

second one "Not available in your region."

Anyone found a way to use Nintendo video from outside the US yet?
