tom- I see that YT has now disabled the check box for 3D. What a mess they have created for us 3D fans. I don't understand why the html5 doesn't offer the SBS and TB along with anaglyph as a viewer choice.
I did find that by default, my IE version 11 still allows SBS to play, avoiding the anaglyph default. I verified this with my latest SBS upload of my Skagway Alaska video. But the player in IE v11 only allows maximum resolution of 720p. The video is 1080p.
I still get SBS default from my YT player on my Samsung K8500 UHD player connected to my projector. But here is the strangest thing- If I create the SBS file in Edius, the playback auto switched my projector to 3D and no need to manually set the 3D to SBS. However, if I select an older file I have uploaded that was rendered in Vegas Pro, I have to first switch the K8500 from auto resolution ( that defaults to upscale 3840x2160 60p) to 1080p maximum, then manually set the projector to SBS while the video is playing. I believe Edius must be injecting meta data that my Samsung player is recognizing. Not sure about that. I just know it works.
I wonder if we all start suggesting to YT support that they offer options for SBS, TB along with anaglyph and 2D for any 3D content that is uploaded in SBS or TB format. I play to send in that suggestion. If enough of us 3D fans suggest the same request, maybe they will listen.
In the meantime, I plan to render three versions of my travel videos when the shooting offers it-
1. SBS 1080p
2. 4K 2D
3. 360VR TB 3D
In addition, some of my 3D projects will use 2D 4K content where I find setting these shots with a little push back behind the screen plane offers a good compromise for a 3D production.
In this 3D production only the train ride and bus ride was shot with 3D Panny Z10K. The rest were all shot with the AX53 using the push back for a fake 3D look.
One more thing- in Chrome, I loaded the Flash Player plugin and it offers the pull down menu allowing you to easily switch between Flash player and html5. Unfortunately, this Flash player does't recognize the MP4 video format. Older files still play that I uploaded with Windows Media video as a 2D file with SBS format- ref my Earth Wind and Fire video.
