I just want to share my setup since I frequently play MKV 3D (either side by side or over-under) files from my PC. I don't use projector but LG 3D TV as my PC monitor.
Ryzen 5 2400G with integrated Radeon RX Vega 11 Graphics
(before I use Intel i5 with integrated HD4600 Graphics)
I never use a dedicated Graphic card.
For the 3D mkv player, I have Media Player Classic Home Cinema (MPC-HC) installed on the PC.
And I use ffdshow video and ffdshow audio for the codec.
The connection :
PC HDMI-out to 3D TV HDMI-in
3D TV optical audio out to A/V receiver optical audio in.
In ffdshow audio setting, I set the audio pass-through feature as the 3D movies mostly with DTS or DD.
In ffdshow video setting for the subtitle I choose "stereoscopic" placement, so if the 3D movie is side by side, the subtitle show both on the left side and right side in MPC HC player.
So, I think there is no 3D video processing at all by the PC but the LG 3D TV who do the process.
When I play the 3D mkv movie, MPC-HC (with ffdshow codec) show two images, left and right (and left and right subtitle if any). I make it full screen display, then I turn on the 3D feature button on the 3D TV, now the image is a whole (not separated left and right anymore) but blurry as we need the 3D glasses to see that "emulated" left and right images into one. And the DTS/DD audio of the 3D mkv file is processed by my A/V receiver.
That's all of my setup.
