3DS:Wireless streaming

From Hacks Guide Wiki
(Redirected from 3DS:STREAM)

This is the approved revision of this page, as well as being the most recent.
OOjs UI icon information-warning.svg The guides below can't be used to stream DS games, DSiWare, and GBA games. You will need a hardware capture card to do that.
OOjs UI icon information-destructive.svg This only works for New 3DS. If you absolutely want a method for Old 3DS, there is HzMod. Keep in mind that performance is still very bad and it is not intended for practical use.

This page will show you how to stream your New 3DS console's screens to your computer over WiFi.

  • Your console and your computer need to be on the same network.
  • Streaming audio over WiFi currently isn't possible, you will need to use an AUX cable and a device with Line In to receive audio.
  • If you have a poor connection, you may not get the best results. The receiving computer should be connected to the network via ethernet or a 5 GHz connection.
OOjs UI icon information-progressive.svg Improved performance is available through this fork of NTR. See the release thread for more details.

Using Line In to Receive Audio

What You Need

  • A 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable
  • An audio in (line in or microphone in) port on your computer
    • Some computers have a single "headphone" port that can be used for both audio output and input. To use one of these, you will need a Y splitter

How to use

  1. Connect your 3DS to your computer's audio input port with a 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable
  2. Pipe the audio from your audio input port into the software you intend to use
    • The exact steps will depend on the software you're using
    • If you are recording or streaming your game using OBS, add a new Audio Input Capture
    • If you are streaming your game via a service such as Discord, you will need to use software such as Voicemeeter to mix your microphone and 3DS audio inputs together
      • If you do not wish to speak while streaming, simply point the app at the 3DS's audio device
      • If you do not wish to mix your microphone and 3DS audio inputs together, you can set up a scene using OBS, create a Windowed Projector Preview and share on Discord that window. Then, in Advanced Audio Properties, turn on the Audio Monitoring for the 3DS Audio Input Capture so that viewers on Discord can hear the 3DS audio. Note that this last step will direct the 3DS audio also to your audio output device (headphones/speakers).
    • To simply listen to the audio, you can listen to the audio input device in Windows

Troubleshooting

  • Games such as those in the Pokemon series, Smash Bros 3DS and many more may crash when trying to load or after a loading screen. To avoid this issue, ensure that the debugger is enabled. To do this see this page.
  • Similarly, such of the above games may disable Wi-Fi connection while using Snickerstream when trying to play online. To counter this, make sure to enable NFC Patch in Snickerstream.
