Is My HTPC capable of 3D play back?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Got me a new Tv this last weekend and it just so happened to be 3d ready! So I went out and bought me some Expensive 3D blu-rays, but didnt have very good luck when trying to play them back. Im using a HTPC I built a couple years back, that has handled everything Iv thrown at it thus Far. Its a Clarkdale i3-540 with an AsRock H55M/usb3.0 Express chipset motherboard. Im using TMT5 for software and the blu ray drive is an LG UH10LS20 10x bluray. Anyways, I tried doing a little research and didnt come up with much. I think my motherboard is holding me back but not sure? Any suggestions? I would like to get 3d working on this computer. Its been nice not having to deal with an external BD player. Thanks alot

I rip my 3D BluRays to SBS (Side-by-Side) format, that way any PC will be able to play them. No special hardware or video cards required... just a TV that will take SBS (most modern ones do.)

GPU integrated in i3-540 does not support BR 3D.

Use DVDFab to rip BR 3D to SbS Half or SbS Full. Half means resolutions are cut in half (each of left and right channels in 960x1080). Full keeps full quality (1920x1080+1920x1080), but as your GPU does not support Frame packing, a software player will downsize it eventually (960x1080+960x1080) before sending it to the graphics driver. Or maybe Full just does not work.
