Hi

Would it be possible to implent a way to identify 3D movies in XBMC.

Maybe an overlay, or changing the HD marker to 3D.

I think the way this could be implemented would be by naming the files as .3dmkv, but would need xbmc to play them as mkv, just tagged as 3d.

I would love to work on this myself, but would have no clue where to start.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

IIRC some skins already support this - but don't change the file suffix - simply add 3D somewhere within the filename - like Avatar.3D.mkv and supporting skins should show a 3d overlay. But don't ask me which skins - I don't remember - just seen it once in the forum here.

When I set up my brothers AppleTV last year I added 3D as a genre in the nfo of each 3D movie which worked OK.

Bedroom A6 3500 • W7 Ultimate x64 • 40GB SSD • HD 6550 • Aeon Nox 4.0

Is that compatible with playerfactory.xml ?
Cause it would be really useful to be able to set an external player to 3D content (TMT5/PowerDVD/WinDVD...).

I don't see why it would interfere with playercorefactory.xml, it should work perfectly fine.

This is exactly what I do. I set a rule for filenames. If the filename includes .3dbd it will use an external player. By the way, .3dbd is how you get the skin to display a 3d case in the library. At least for MQ3, which is what I use.
