3D playback

Post by nkhan » Sat Apr 21, 2012 3:55 pm

I have my 3D movies backed up but dont have a player to play this back on.
I did originally thing the Popcorn would be able to play these files but it seems it cannot play 3D MKVs.

What machines are people using to playback these 3d MKVs.

Thank you

The only traditional media player capable of playing H.264 MVC (3D Blu-ray) codec & also support the MKV container are Realtek 1186 players.

The only other chipset with H.264 MVC support that might appear in network media players is the Marvell Armada 1500 which is used in second generation GoogleTV's and a various Blu-ray players. The second generation Boxee Box might also end using this chipset and the prior version of this Armada chipset was used in a few network media players.

Sigma Designs the chipset makers behind boxes like WDTV Live, Popcornhour etc does not have a H.264 MVC capable chipset, their next generation chipset was due last year & has been delayed again...

Support through existing 3D Blu-ray players is difficult to say as they are usually very poor network media players to begin with along with compatibility issues with MKV containers.
