I have a briteview primohd / 6000p which cannot play 3d mkv files that i have downloaded.. Are there media players that would play the files? I'm connecting it to the Mitsubishi 3da-1 adapter. I'm not interested in streaming nor setting up an htpc. I just want to dump the 3d mkv files onto the USB hard drive, then plug it in the media player.

1)don't mention "thebay" here
2)any player that plays regular mkvs can play sbs mkvs as long as it is a standard resolution and h.264 profile

you are supposed to switch the tv manually into 3d SBS mode in order for it to work, the tv will not detect an mkv as 3d because it is just like a regular mkv



A friend of mine has a GT25 3d tv, we tried a few mkvs authored as avchd and they work perfectly fine, he switches the tv into 3d sds mode and it's all good.

I tried to look in their manual but found nothing, not sure if the tv is capable of combining SBS into a single 3d image.

This may be stupidity, but are you sure you're looking in the right menu? If it is anything like the NX810 menu system a lot of people get confused because there are two 3d menus. Do not look in the menu settings of the Xross Media Bar under 3D you will get nowhere. On the remote control halfway down on the right side there is a button for "options" which brings up a different sub menu. Scroll down to 3D settings, and then the last option is for 3D mode...which enables SBS, top/bottom, etc.

Not sure if this helps but hopefully it points you in the right direction.

Can you suggest a program to convert MKV to AVCHD?
So far I've had no luck getting a MKV to work on Panny VT25/BT-100 3D blu-ray player. Read many forum posts and still nothing...

tsmuxer is what my friend used, one thing to keep in mind and experiment with is the framerates/resolution and profiles used.

AVCHD is a subset of bluray and is stricter, only some resolutions are supported that are standard, also my friend had a movie that was 23.97fps but when he remuxed it, it would not play, he did it again setting the framerate as 24 and it played fine. Also the profile should usually be set to 4.1 or lower.



Overall once you figure out what settings work with the player, tsmuxer is super easy to use and works great.

It's all in the manual.


Photo playback automatically starts when you connect a USB storage device after turning on the TV, and Slideshow or Thumbnail View is selected in the USB Auto Start settings.
When connecting a Sony digital camera to the TV with a USB cable, USB connection settings on your camera need to be set to Auto or Mass Storage mode.
Files from a USB device need to be compatible with the following file formats.
- Still images: JPEG format or RAW format (preview only)
- Music: MP3 format
- Video: AVCHD, MP4 (AVC) or MPEG1 format (not playable in some cases)
Video files are located in the following folder structure (hierarchal position):
/AVCHD/BDMV/STREAM/00000.MTS/PRIVATE/AVCHD/BDMV/STREAM/00000.MTS
/MP_ROOT/100ANV01/MAHA0001.MP4
Avoid losing your files by backing up all your media files stored on a USB device. Sony cannot accept responsibility for lost or damaged data stored on a USB device.
Check the website below for updated information about compatible USB devices.

1)try making an avchd of a regular mkv(non 3d) and see if it plays, according to the manual it should
2)once you get it to work make one of a SBS mkv and play it the same way, except go into the 3d menu and select SBS

You really have to read the manual, the things you are asking are trivial.
online manual is on this page
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/mod...09&region_id=1




3D Menu

You can adjust the following settings by pressing OPTIONS on the remote control and selecting “3D Menu” from the menu list.

* 3D Display
* - For switching between the 3D and 2D display mode.
* 3D Depth Adjustment
* - For adjusting the depth of 3D pictures on the screen. Available only for content with 3D signals. Selecting “0” is recommended for normal use. 3D effect may be less pronounced depending on the settings.
* Simulated 3D Effect
* - Use to heighten or lessen the 3D effect when you display 2D pictures in simulated 3D.
* 3D Glasses Brightness
* - For setting the image brightness when using 3D display mode. By selecting “Auto,” image brightness through the 3D Glasses is automatically adjusted in conjunction with the “Scene Select” setting.
* 3D Format
* Simulated 3D: For viewing regular 2D pictures in simulated 3D.
* Side-by-Side: For displaying 3D content in the Side-by-Side format. Selecting this displays two near-identical pictures side-by-side for 3D viewing. Wear the 3D Glasses before setting “3D Format” as the instructions will otherwise be unreadable because of doubly-blurred letters on the screen.
* Over-Under: For displaying 3D content in the Over-Under format. Selecting this displays two near-identical pictures one above the other for 3D viewing. Wear the 3D Glasses before setting “3D Format” as the instructions will otherwise be unreadable because of doubly-blurred letters on the screen.

I am extremely grateful for link and description but still baffled as I dont see any downloadable owner manual settings, nor do see how to set 3D SBS?

No! oops! Sorry, I did not.

So only way you could see was two images side by side as I am viewing without 3D effect?

But why the heck, instead of reg bluray one would like to watch SBS two images from 3D file?

My kuro also display SBS images from 3D rip though

the idea is that you have a SBS mkv file, once your tv is turned on in 3d SBS mode the image is made into a single 3d image.....SBS is just a way of coding 3d movies. Your kuro will display the sbs image but because it is not 3d capable it cannot combine the image into an actual 3d image.

Thanks a lot again. So side by side on kuro is justified , I agree but so far no luck of merging SBS images to one on my Sony 52 hx 909;( well seems I am not doing some thing right

As mentioned by another user in a different thread, WDTV Live player and above (Plus / Hub) works fine with 3D mkv half SBS.
The player is buggy though that you will have to enable 3D mode first on the TV prior to hitting the Play button on the media player. This procedure seems to eliminate the crashing / stuttering issues.

Have you checked out ps3 media server? The title is a little misleading as it will stream to all kinds of media streamers (ps3, xbox, wd, etc). You install it on a pc on your network and it shows up as a UPNP device on your media streamer. I've read in the support forums that many people are using it with 3d. It is free and can convert video to other formats on the fly when needed. Install is a breeze. I've ripped all of my movies to mkv and I can watch them anywhere in the house with the help of this program.
