Hi Frank,
Do you need to have 3D glasses to watch those clips in 3D ?
If so, which ones would you recommend ?
Thanks,
John

Usually the answer is yes but I suppose if you wanted to view it on a autostereoscopic display you could see it in 3D without glasses.
Otherwise....the type of glasses would depend on what kind of display you are using.

Did IQ's suddenly drop sharply while I was away?
I enjoy 3D in spite of HDMI 1.4!
Full screen only 3D doesn't cut it!

Frank,

I have downloaded several of your "3D" MTS files to my computer, but when I try to open them with Windows Media Player 11, the program says it cannot recognize or play these files. What to do?

Thanks, Frank. I downloaded the VLC player, and it is able to open the MTS files. The video starts to play, but the image remains frozen on the first frame, like a snapshot. I'll keep experimenting with it.

Win7 has all the codecs that make playing MPEG4/h.264 files painless and transparent. Older versions of Windows require that you install other codecs. It can get hairy. That's one of the main reasons I've upgraded to Win7 on my systems, except for one that still uses some legacy hardware/software. As soon as I can, I'll upgrade that one, too.

After reading all these stories, I was fearing I would need to go out and buy a BluRay burner just to watch some of the samples and videos available on the net. Tried calling Panasonics' Tech Support and they couldn't even tell me the type of formatting a USB needed (only supports FAT32, not NTFS)! Of course they had no clue what I was talking about when I asked them about the video formats supported... All they could say was that they supported most video formats generated by Panasonic video recorders, and that they didn't not support common formats like mp4, avi, mov, or mkv... in this time and age... unbelievable!

At any rate, via trial and error, here's what worked for me in case it helps others:
1) Obtain a copy of a side-by-side 3D video (don't worry about formats yet)
2) Use a video converter program (I use Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate)
3) Based on Panasonic's manual, I tried all the AVCHD and H.264 formats but they weren't recognized by the TV or Blu-ray Player
4) Finally, converted the video into "HD-Xvid Video" (Xvid HD Video Format) which generated a .AVI file
5) Copied the file to a USB, plugged it into the Blu-ray Player and clicked Play
6) It showed the side-by-side video, so on the TV, chose Viera tools, 3D, and switched from Auto to Side-By-Side
7) Voila! Put your glasses on and enjoy!

TIP: Depending on the size of your 3D video, it is very likely you'll exceed the 4Gb limitation of the FAT32 format. So as part of the video conversion, you can split the video. I opted for ~4Gb segments which you can easily copy to the USB or burn to a regular DVD (Blank Blu-rays are still expensive...)
