I've been using VLC for years. Haven't used the streaming plugins yet. So I went and tested this, but it won't play higher than 720p for me. I went and checked Safari and now it won't go higher than 720p again. It seemed to have this problem a few years ago and then it allowed the higher resolutions, now it's not working again, only 720p. So I don't know what's going on, very frustrating.
In VLC you can set prefs. to the screen you want and to default to full screen, that way you don't have to set it every video, it will just default to your 3D screen and full screen. That's what I do for local videos. Of course Chrome is still worthless for 3D but I can get the higher resolutions there. Not sure what's going on but not more than a week ago I was able to play higher than 720p with Safari browser and now I can't.
