The Nintendo 3DS portable gaming console has finally received the anticipated feature for recording 3D video with the latest firmware update, but much more people are actually willing to use the console for 3D video playback and not 3D video recording device. The 3DS can be used as a nice portable 3D video playback device and thanks to the autostereoscopic 3D display that does not require to wear 3D glasses it is even more convenient. As a result there is now a handy little tool with an easy to use GUI that relies on ffmpeg to help you convert most stereo 3D video clips in a format that the Nintendo 3DS console can play. The software can easily convert both 2D and 3D videos (Side by Side or Top/Bottom formats) for playback on the Nintendo 3DS. You can change the Quality between the default of 1 (best) and 31 (lowest) and use the Advanced options that allow you to select Bitrate or change the FPS of the converted video. You are welcome to try the software (it is free and open source) and report how it works for you if you have a 3DS and if you find any bugs you should also report them to the authors of the software, so that they can fix them…
