The updated version of the free Stereoscopic 3D player includes a lot of fixes, some improved and new features and the new version 1.5.2 of the player seems to be working quite well, so you should download and install it if you have 3D Vision available.
Here is complete list of what is new:
- Added support for still image files (mpo, jpg/jps, tif, gif, png/pns, bmp).
- Added folder browsing (next image/previous image commands) for stills.
- Added folder playback (plays all stills in a folder).
- Added prefetching for folder browsing.
- Added reading parallax from MPO files.
- Added support for still images in playlists.
- Added Shirt+A..Z hotkeys to directly jump to playlist items beyond 35.
- Added call stack to error log file.
- Added low resolution rendering if image resolution exceeds maximum texture size.
- Fixed incompatibilities of HDV capture devices with certain MPEG-2 decoders.
- Fixed deadlock when switching to fullscreen mode while paused.
And now comes the big question that some people have been asking today, regarding the news about the Blu-ray Disc Association announcing the final Blu-ray 3D Specs – will the 3D Vision Video Player support the new format? Unfortunately there is no such support being announced for the free player, but there are already some partners of Nvidia that have announced support for Blu-ray 3D in their future commercial video player solutions. These are Arcsoft with TotalMedia Theatre, Corel with WinDVD, Cyberlink with PowerDVD Ultra and Sonic with Roxio CinePlayer BD and all these players should have GPU-accelerated hardware decoding of the Multiview Video Coding (MVC) codec and support 3D Vision on compatible Nvidia-based video cards. But it is still to early for Blu-ray 3D movies and players at the moment, we’ll probably have to wait at least a few more months before things actually start moving, in the meantime what you can do is update the 3D Vision player…
