Do you know that with the help of HTML5 you can now watch the stereoscopic 3D videos available on YouTube with 3D Vision directly from your browser, but for that to work you would need not only to have a 3D Vision PC, but also to use the latest Mozilla FireFox 4 browser as well as to update to the latest beta GeForce Driver 275.27. It seems that currently only Firefox 4 is being supported, but other browsers will most likely soon follow and HTML5 opens the doors not only for 3D Vision, but for streaming in other 3D formats as well. The biggest problem is that currently the vast majority of users still use older browsers that still don’t have support for HTML5, but the 3D video streaming option is a good thing to make you do the update… at least for me. And with the new iframe embedding code for YouTube videos you are able to embed 3D videos on your website as well that can be viewed directly through the browser in 3D with 3D Vision if the visitor is using Firefox 4. When you open a 3D video from YouTube just click on the 3D control, select “other options…” and use the “HTML5 Stereo View (including NVIDIA 3D Vision)” to watch the YouTube 3D video in stereo 3D inside your browser. If you are having trouble and it is not working, make sure you are using the latest FireFox 4 browser as well as that you have installed the latest 275.27 beta drivers on your 3D Vision-ready system. Here is an HTML5 YouTube 3D test video to try with that should work just fine.

Today Nvidia has made available a 3D plug-in to allow web developers to take advantage of the 3D Vision technology and build Silverlight media players for streaming 3D videos directly from their own websites. The 3D video plug-in from Nvidia is made for the Microsoft Media Platform (MMP) Player Framework v2.5 (F.K.A. Silverlight Media Framework) and offers pretty much the same basic functionality found on the 3DVisionLive.com website for streaming 3D video. The solution is offered for free by Nvidia, along with a brief guide on how to implement it, and of course it user Microsoft Silverlight, requires the use of IIS7 web server and supports IIS Smooth Streaming and Microsoft PlayReady DRM technologies.
I’m considering to try it out and maybe add 3D video streaming functionality here at the blog, but lets first see if I’ll have enough resources and time to implement such functionality as it is not a complete out of the box solution and needs some time for a custom solution to be developed. What do you think about this idea, do you want to see 3D video streaming here on the blog?

Apparently Nvidia’s video portal with streaming 3D videos is now finally out of beta and has more 3D videos available for watching directly online from your browser’s window, so you can go and check out the new content available. Of course you will need to have 3D Vision-equipped PC and Microsoft’s Silverlight plugin as well as the latest video drivers installed in order for things to work as they should. And if you are making 3D videos, then you are welcome to drop a line to Nvidia (they have a contact email on the website) to get your video included. And apart from Nvidia’s website, you can also get your 3D videos featured here on the 3D Vision Blog if you get in contact with me using the contact form above.
– You can visit Nvidia’s 3D Vision Live website here and look at the new videos…
