Setting Up an Account on Nico Video [Orange Farm Archive]

Today, I’m going to tell you all how to set up your very own Nico Video account in order to watch any links to it we might post without having to bother to wait for the video to be uploaded to Youtube!

nico_nico_douga_logoThough it’s fairly self-explanatory, that’s probably just me being a moonspeak-fag, so there’s pictures to help you out.

First off, you should probably go to the website: http://www.nicovideo.jp.


From there, click where I’ve circled. It says “log in”.


Of course, we don’t have a login yet. Click the bottom button to go to the account set up page.


This is important. Click the one I circled. The other one is a premium account that costs money.


All the relevant fields here are labeled. The very bottom location should say 海外, which means “overseas” because you’re not from one of the Japanese prefectures. Click the bottom button to finish!


But we’re not quite done. If you have no idea what to do now, here are a few tips.


There are two types of searches – keyword search and tag search. Keyword search will look for any video with your search term in its title or its description, while tag search will give you all the videos with that tag.

I think tags are decided by users, but… I’m not exactly sure how it works. On the video page, the tags are listed with icons – the red ones mean those tags are more relevant to the video.

In any case, sorting your search results is another important factor. The search box is under the magnifying glass icon on the left. Here are the sorting methods:

投稿が新しい順 – Sort by newest
投稿が古い順 – Sort by oldest
再生が多い順 – Sort by most views
再生が少ない順 – Sort by least views
コメントが新しい順 – Sort by newest comment
コメントが古い順 – Sort by least recent comment
コメントが多い順 – Sort by most comments
コメントが少ない順 – Sort by least comments
マイリストが多い順 – Sort by most Mylist entries(it’s like a favorites list… that’s another tutorial)
マイリストが少ない順 – Sort by least Mylist entries
時間が長い順 – Sort by longest length
時間が短い順 – Sort by shortest length

As you can see, you’ll probably be using “most viewed” or “most commented on”, because the default sorting method just gives you newest videos to oldest.

Finally, turn off comments in videos by clicking the little speech bubble button next to the volume control.

And that’s that. Look up some Japanese words, and search for them! Here’s a few to get you started.

東方 (Touhou)
MAD (Those music animation/game videos)
スパロボ (Suparobo – super robot, usually Super Robot Wars)
アニメ (Anime)

Maybe for next time, I’ll explain how to set up your own Mylists. Anyway, see you! I’ll have news for you guys tomorrow~

    Halp plez! I keep getting a message that babel fish translates out to:
    お使いの PC の時計が進みすぎているため、正常にログインができない場合がございます。
    Because the clock of PC of errand runs too fast too much, there are times when login is not possible normally.
    when I try to log on. Any insight to this message, as my skills in engrish are obviously not up to par as far as translating this. Thanks in advance!

    That’s odd, I’ve never seen that before. It looks like it’s saying that your computer’s clock is too fast or something. Are you still logging on?

    Well the good news is I got it figured out. Email address to log in, not user name. I’m dumb.
