View Full Version : How To Play 3D Video Files On ASUS ROG 3D Laptop & 3D Swift Moniror

Hello friends. I bought the top of the line configuration of the ASUS ROG gaming laptop: ASUS ROG G751JY-DB73X 17.3-Inch Gaming Laptop, GeForce GTX 980M 4G (G-SYNC) with the ASUS PG278Q ROG Swift 27-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor along with the Nvidia 3D Vision 2 Kit. After some painful searches (and disappointment at how difficult it is to find latest drivers on the Nvidia site) I was able to get the set up running. The screenshots of 3D games in a 3D demo was mind blowing. Seeing my own 3D photos taken with my several years old FujiFilm W3D was stunning.

BUT, no matter what I do I cannot get to see the 3D videos I have, made by that camera and others. The 3D Photo Viewer is not capable of showing videos. And running the videos with VLC, or the previous Default Windows Media Player just open TWO windows, probably of the 2 streams. How do I SEE the 3D videos in 3D on the ASUS?

I had invested in the CyberLink Director Ultimate bundle and the DVD Director in it also does not play the videos as 3D.

My whole idea of getting this expensive set up was to do 3D video editing. Not sure when I will do that if I cannot even PLAY 3D videos. Your advice and answers will be appreciated.

To my knowledge there is no standard container for *true* 3d video other than 3d Blurays and the authoring tools are not readily available or easy to use... least this was the state of things when I last looked into. No sure how your camera encodes the video, there may exist a proprietary player that you can look for.

If it is two separate video streams / files then you can reencode it into SBS (side by side) or OU (over under) format. Many players and TVs accept these formats to play 3D titles. I know Kodi (media playback software) plays MKVs with SBS and OU encoding just fine.

You may find someone here that can give you more specific information to your situation, but a quick google search regarding your camera's video format indicates many are converting to one of the split screen formats.

have you tried stereoscopic player? form here ? http://3dtv.at/Index_en.aspx

Are you able to get 3d vision support on the laptop monitor, or only the add on monitor?

Apparently nobody at ASUS or Nvidia knows if I can run Nvidia Vision 3d on the new ASUS laptops using an add-on emitter from Nvidia

Does anyone know ?
