Workaround for 3D Vision Video Player Not Willing to Play a Video

May 29th, 2010 · 6 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

By now you should be well aware that the 3D Vision Video Player and the Stereoscopic Player sometimes can behave a bit strange when you try to play some stereo 3D video files, even though you have the right codecs installed and setup in the player. This strange behavior can sometimes be annoying, especially after you mess with the codecs and the player settings in order to fix the issue, but nothing seems to help in resolving the problem. So instead of trying to recompress the video file to more “friendly” formats and thus having to wait more or loose some of the original quality you can try another alternative workaround that may help you play the 3D video…

I’m talking about the use of a simple AviSynth script to warp the video into an AVI compatible stream that should help you play the 3D video file in the 3D Vision Video Player or the Stereoscopic Player. You need to download and install the free AviSynth for this method to work. Then you need to create a text file (name it for example workaround.avs) and enter the following line in it:


You can either place the AVS file in the same directory as the video file and just change the name of the video, in this example sailboats-stereo-3d.m2t or to enter the full patch to the video file and have the AVS script anywhere you like. Then you just need to open the workaround.avs script in the 3D Vision Video Player or the Stereoscopic Player instead of directly the problematic video file, you need to choose the 3D format and then the video should start playing. Of course this workaround may as well sometimes behave weird and not work, but it doesn’t take time and it won’t hurt to try it out if you are getting trouble with some stereo 3D videos you want to watch.

    Use TSDoctor to repair and clean TS Files, so the player will all TransportStreams from any box.

    You may be missing a required codec for decoding…

    If you have a file that is not working in the Stereoscopic Player, please let us know! You can email us sample files to office@3dtv.at and we will look which codec it requires and how the player can be improved to handle it better.

    I found that NVIDAs 3D Vision Video Player does not like Audio with more than 2 Channels, like AC3 or Dolby Digital 5.1 … If your video file uses Multi Channel Audio you video will never play, just say stopped. At least this is my experience.

    Is that need any other things..?
