looking for a way to view FS on 3D TV

I just purchased (six months ago) an LG LCD 3D TV (wow that's a lot of letters!). I still have a couple of dozen or so field-sequential videos from several years ago that I would like to watch on my new 3D TV. I have a 3D blu-ray player and a Raspberry Pi running RaspBMC. The operating system on my computer is Ubuntu.

I am familiar with bino and I know that it can convert the FS to SBS (side-by-side) video, but I my laptop does not have video output. I have also seen a bino plugin for XBMC, but when I try to install that, it tells me that dependencies are not met.

I have handbrake, so I can rip the videos from my original DVDs if necessary.

Is there any way to get RaspBMC to play these FS videos in a way that my LG TV can play them in 3D using the software / hardware that I have? If not, is there any way at all that I can accomplish this? Any help at all would be GREAT! Thanks...

So, I guess the answer is no, huh?

can't you convert to Side by side and burn to DVD?

You can use a Lumagen Radiance video processor with their 3D CRT Glasses Sync Box to watch Frame Sequential 3D. There are quite a few of these installations on high end CRT projectors. This is how you add 3D capability to a CRT projector.

Call or email Lumagen for more information.

I'm sorry... when I said that bino could convert to side-by-side (and/or top-bottom) I meant that it did it on the fly. There is no option to save the converted video. I cannot find any program that can convert and save the output. That is what I am looking for.

Does your computer have a slot for an HDMI video card?

I don't even know what you guys are talking about so I can't help much other than to offer a USB based HDMI video card for the laptop?
