What do I need to do in order to watch movies on my 3D ready DLP projector

I have been looking around on the internet and have found a range of conflicting information.
Currently I have an Acer x110 DLP 3D ready projector and DLP active 3D glasses and wish to watch 3D films from my laptop.

My Acer Aspire has an Intel i5-2450m (2.50GHz) 8GB RAM
Intel HD Graphics and Nvidia GeForce GT 520m.

What programs/further information do i need to enable to to watch 3d films with dlp link glasses (i read somewhere 3d vision and Stereoscopic player doesnt work with dlp glasses) can anyone help me?
I not very well versed with 3D so if any further information is needed please ask away.

If your projector is capable of playing SBS (side by side) or OU (over under) then virtually any video player can play those files. Search in Youtube for 3D, play the video in full screen you should see two images side by side (or OU), in projector menu enable 3D SBS (OU), turn on your glasses. To play full screen frame packed is much more difficult as your HDMI must be 1.4 and only ISO files played with PowerDVD work, their are other options I won't go into here.

EDIT: the easiest and cheapest is to buy a 3D capable BR player with 3D BR disc.

This appears to be an analog 120Hz frame-sequential 3D capable projector. Your only option is the PowerDVD software player with that (or similar worded) output setting; or Stereoscopic Player (3dtv.at; I am not familiar with it) for non-protected video.

Edit: assuming that the laptop has VGA out.

A dedicated player or a converter box are not feasible, as the video input appears to be only VGA.

(I was not able to make PDVD 16 run 3D frame-sequential through HDMI, although the setting was available.)
