Hi all there

After trying for some days both Cyberlink PowerDVD and Arcsoft Total Media Theatre (TMT) and then coming back to MPC-HC+madvr made me think about some things.

As for 2D high-definition movies reproduction (bluray, mkv, etc) MPC is superior to "competitiors", but for 3D bluray (stereoscopic with active shutter glasses and 3d tv panasonic tv) it seems to me that TMT and PowerDVD are far better players; am I doing something wrong myself with any settings or do I need some more specific filters to add in mpc-hc?

The main concern to me is that both software give me a nice 3d-effect feeling, with objects popping out from my tv (how much and how many times depending pretty much from the movie) and coming to my face and a very good depth imaging while mpc-hc doesn't give to me the same feedback, expecially the 3d-pop out effect.

What do you think about that?

Thank you for the help and as always for all the informations and guides found there

MPC does not do 3D; it plays the BD3D in 2D. You see a 2D-to-3D conversion by the TV.

Oh okay, now I see!

So for the reproduction of 3D bluray which software do you advise to use, which will not cause any troubles and conflicts with my current MPC-HC setup?

As for 3D MVC MKV, Stereoscopic Player by 3dtv.at is the only player that can decode MVC and output 3D (in various formats, Frame Packing, SBS, etc.). If your graphics card is NVIDIA, you will have to buy NVIDIA's 3DTV Play, $40, to get Frame Packing 3D. AMD graphics cards are reported to have a problem. Intel is good.

You can play BR 3D ISO with any of PowerDVD, TMT, Stereoscopic Player (but with the same problems as above).

Thank you renethx for your advices

I have a NVIDIA graphic card (gtx 680), it will be the same for me to install Stereoscopic Player (3dtv.at) instead of Nvidia 3dPlay (I gave it a try some weeks ago with the trial version but I had problems with it and uninstalled asap) or the other mentioned softwares?

My main concern is the correct reproduction of 3D Bluray (original); honestly, online 3d contents, mkv mvc 3d video, youtube 3d and other stuff is way less important to me.

Stereoscopic Player (3dtv.at) is independent of 3DTV Play. You will need the latter to enable Frame Packing 3D output with Stereoscopic Player + NVIDIA GPU (you don't need it with PowerDVD/TMT + NVIDIA GPU, however). 3DTV Play is included in NVIDIA GPU driver, you will need a $40 license to use it beyond the trial period.

Ok, now I understand; so it's either Stereoscopic Player (3dtv.at) + Nvidia 3DTV Play or full players like Arcsoft TMT / PowerDVD Ultra.

Quality wise, are there any differences between both setups? Which one is recommended?

As for Stereo player (3dtv.at), do you advise using 2.1.4 stable version or 2.2.9 Beta version instead?

Thank you for all these informations

There is no quality difference. Stereoscopic Player + 3DTV Play is pretty expensive. If you already have PowerDVD, stick to it (with ISO). Otherwise whichever. With Stereoscopic Player for 3D and MPC-BE/HC for 2D, you can have all your video files in MKV format, that's a kind of advantage (?). Stereoscopic Player 2.2.9 is a lot better than the official release.
