play 3d bluray side-by-side ?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Is there any way to play 3d blu-ray with a side-by-side configuration on PC ?
Seems like Totalmedia Theater/WinDVD/PowerDVD only offers options for checker/interlaced/sequential :/

PowerDVD 10 has the setting for side-by-side in [Source Format] under [3D Display Configuration]

Sorry, there is no know software that will decode Blu-ray 3D and display it as side by side for use with dual projector time parallel systems with passive glasses.
Peter Wimmer is working on incorporating a MVC decoder into his famous Stereoscopic Player. So when it is done
we will have side by side full HD 3D output from 3D Blu-ray content.

There is no program that will do this for you. You can however rip the Blu-Ray and encode it yourself, using DVDFab for example.

Peter Wimmer's Stereoscopic Player software will now play SSID files directly from a blu-ray 3d disc (real or mounted ISO file). So far, my experience with this has been outstanding.

Paste into browser: http://3dvision-blog.com/the-new-stereoscopic-player-version-1-6-9-comes-with-mvc-decoder/"]http://3dvision-blog.com/the-new-stereoscopic-player-version-1-6-9-comes-with-mvc-decoder/

The capability to decode MVC directly is the only feature which expires after a 30 day trial period. Also, trial (free) version limits playback duration to 5 minutes. I don't see a download link on the official site, though: I can only get to it using 3dvision-blog.com.

Has anyone tried playing an SSIF stream directly off an untouched retail disc? Surely you would need to remove the encryption first using something like AnyDVDHD, but this can be done "live" without ripping the disc.

They should be adding CUDA acceleration for MVC soon, which might actually make this a better solution than PDVD10 / TMT5 for people with older Nvidia cards. AFAIK this is the only solution that enables Geforce card owners to watch 3D Bluray without having to buy a 3Dvision kit.

It's been said many times now that you don't need the kit for bluray. "AFAIK" noted and appreciated though.

Edit: sorry, missed the context of "older cards"; makes sense then.

Yeh, I meant for older non HDMI 1.4 nvidia cards, which don't support MVC using DXVA hardware acceleration either.

Projector owners, or anyone else without a DLPTV / Interlaced display would also have needed a kit, until now:
