With the implementation of video streaming for the 3DS in NTR CFW. The 3DS has seen a few implementations of apps used to utilize this feature on various systems. From Windows to Linux OS, hough not in quite a wide scope as has been done with the release of UWPStreamer. With the release of UWPStreamer, developer toolboc, of the reddit community went beyond just developing another streaming application; but one that works on just about any windows based device with access to the Windows app store.
UWPStreamer works with desktops, Windows mobile, Xbox One and even the HoloLens, that’s insane! And to top this amazing range of devices, the app is officially available via Windows store, therefore no need to side load or use the app via basic executable files, which tends to come with security concerns for some users. With the release via Microsoft’s own app store and being open source as well, all the inner workings are open for anyone to scrutinize its reach and purpose.
Software scrutiny aside, with this app being available, users can now stream, which can come in handy for shared gameplay, bigger screens and even video capture purposes. All of which are very intriguing given installation of capture cards are somewhat of a pain on 3DS systems.
This app will of course require use of CFW, NTR firmware to be exact, the app and a Wi-fi connection (of course).
It can be installed directly from the Windows store HERE
Instructions for use, other details on this app and it’s open source details can be found on the reddit page HERE
A nice little demo of it’s use via HoloLens can be seen below done with an early build of the app by the developer:
I think I may have just found a reason to dust off my Windows pc after all, for some big screen streaming of my 3DS games.
