Switch interface into side-by-side mode for 3D output - Anastrophe - 2010-08-19 21:33
The whole subject of supporting 3D content and playback is a complex one, but a real cool feature for xbmc would be to double render the interface in a side-by-side mode for users that wish to view 3D content and need to still be able to navigate through folders and libs to get at the content.
One way of appraching it would be to allow a library/dir to be flagged as containing 3D content, this would then trigger the user interface into dropping to 50% of its current resolution and outputting the same interface screen twice in a side-by-side fashion. Otherwise users have to navigate to the 3D content they want to watch in xbmc, turn on 3D mode on their TV (which then makes the xbmc interface unreadable) and then hit the play button. All Media info, current playing info etc cannot be read as it's not being displayed in side-by-side mode (i guess that's an additional change as when the content is actually playing the interface should go back to fullscreen or else we'd end up with 4 images, i.e. the side-by-side content doubled).
I'm sure in the future that skins could make use of the 3D aspect by rendering elements slightly offset to give depth etc.
Well there you go, my first feature suggestion/request.
SBS 3D Support for MKV Containers using Mitbusihi 3dc-1000? - BDPNA - 2010-08-24 04:08
Considering both my BriteView CinemaTube and my WD TV Live box seem to have no trouble passing SBS 3D video and audiointo my Mitsubishi converter box, any hope for XBMC doing this as well?
I realize XBMC is nowhere near supporting 3D natively, but considering the Mitsubishi 3dc-1000 has arrived, and some have figured out how to use it with Samsung sets as well, via EDID, do any of the developers plan to try it out?
I realize it's a long shot to hope for this, but when I saw my standalone boxes do it so effortlessly, I thought, why not XBMC? I secretly had crossed my fingers and hoped it would just work, but it didn't.

I've been playing back s-b-s 3D content on my Revo in xbmc, what's the problem you're facing?

I'm using a zotac ion 330 based platform custom build. Are you doing this using xbmc live under ubuntu or another method? Also I'm using the svn, not camelot. Are you doing the same thing?
When I attempt to play SBS content fed through my mitsubishi converter box, the sound just goes all to static and the video doesn't combine.

To date I've only been using on my Panasonic 3D Plasma, I do also have a new Viewsonic 3D projector that uses the same checkboard 3D as your Mistsubishi and Amzon shipped my 4 pairs of 3D specs yesterday - but I don't have a converter box for it. My plan's to use it for DirectX 3D gaming through the free EZ3D drivers.
I've been using nighly builds for some time and most SBS stuff plays just fine on the Panny .

I must have just been having handshake issues -- My zotac ion based htpc and xbmc is now handling playing SBS 3D movies just fine (or top/bottom). Don't think it can output checkerboard yet or maybe I just don't have a properly sourced checkerboard video file to test with yet.
But yep, working well with SBS and top/bottom. Way cool.
Can XBMC playback Blu-ray Disc 3D movies today? - BasalGanglia - 2010-10-10 03:10
I was just curious if XBMC played 3d bluray isos

not yet is probably the correct answer.
