Bino is a Free Stereo 3D Video Player for Linux and Max OS X

March 5th, 2011 · 8 Comments · Other S3D Tech

If you are looking for a video player for Linux or Mac OS X that supports stereoscopic 3D video playback, then Bino might be just the right thing you need. Bino is free software, licensed under the terms of the GNU GPL version 3 or later. The player supports Side by Side, Over/Under, Field Sequential input and output formats as well as OpenGL quad-buffered stereo on compatible professional video cards. You will not be able to use 3D Vision however, unless maybe if you have a Quadro video card. There is also support available for anaglyph red-cyan output using the Dubois method for the color output. Another interesting feature of the Bino player is the support for multi-display video, e.g. for powerwalls, Virtual Reality installations and other multi-projector setups. If you have used the software before or decide to try it you are welcome to share your feedback in the comments below.

    I tried all available versions, and every time i start playing a movie, it plays 1-2 seconds and the image is freezing, while the sound plays well. When i do anything (changing the audio track, or skip with button) the playback contiues for a few seconds again, then stops again. The menu can’t be used, it appears, but can’t click on any menu item. (i’m using 10.6.8 an a Mac Pro with SSD, 8GB Ram, and GeForce GTX 285). Any idea?
