The 3D Vision Video Player Just Got Updated to version 1.6.2

August 27th, 2010 · 16 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

It has been a while since the last update for the 3D Vision Video Player was released, but the new version 1.6.2 brings some new features along with improvements and fixes, so you should update it now. Among the more interesting new features is the addition of support for MXF files of Digital Cinema Packages and the JPEG2000 video decoder, along with support for 3D Vision Surround mode. Of course when in 3D Vision Surround mode the video gets played on the center screen only and not stretched to all screens, unless maybe if it is with wide enough resolution, however this is better than the player just crashing as it did in the older versions when using Surround setups. You can see the full lists of changes in the new 3D Vision Video Player version 1.6.2 on the official download page linked below.

    Can it play side by side MKV movies now?

  • 2 Bloody // Aug 27, 2010 at 16:12

    You can play them in the older versions too, it is not a matter of the player, but the available codecs and splitters and proper configuration of the player in order to support them…

    It can now play frame sequential.
    Since it’s just 3dtv stereoscopic player 1.6.2 renamed.

    It still has the problem that they haven’t changed the 3dtv GUID so if you have both installed it will just run the latest – you can’t select a file and open with nvidia’s player

    I will stick to steroscopic player, since this is basically the same, but its free. Thats a gr8 thing.

    So if it’s exactly the same numbering, no need to install as I also have Stereoscopic player installed already.

    I’m a 1600×1200 daily user but my CRT only do 120Hz at 1024×768 max.

    I wish they would solve the problem of playing in a defined resolution. I wrote to the author but he doesn’t seem to care or willing to help.

    I end up always having to swtich the video resolution before watching a video.

    StereoPhoto Maker on the other hand does that properly so when I press F8, it switch to 1024×768@120Hz.

    The 3D Vision Video Player is just a stripped down version of the Stereoscopic Player designed to be used with 3D Vision only, but it is completely free. If you however have a license for the Stereoscopic Player you can practically use it the same way, however the trial version is time limited, so if you don’t have a license to use the Stereoscopic Player better stick to the 3D Vision Video Player.

    Bloody, please, can you post link or description to the right settings for view frame sequential files with this player?

  • 8 Bloody // Aug 28, 2010 at 13:07

    Bercut, what problem exactly do you have with playing frame sequential files? Just open it form the player and choose the format and then it should play or maybe it gives you some error?

    Thanks Bloody,
    which particular codec do I need, or is there a codec package?
    I’ve got some 1080p mkv side by side videos I would like to watch.
    It’s playing perfectly fine in VLC, but the 3D Vision Video Player just crashes upon loading the files.
    It seems to be a splitter-problem.

    I wonder why don’t they make 3D Vision available on photo sharing websites like Flickr or Phereo – it would be so nice to watch stereo in a browser like ordinary pics..

  • 11 David // Sep 2, 2010 at 02:07

    Will this remain unanswered?

  • 12 Bloody // Sep 2, 2010 at 02:53

    David, the MKV files are just a container, the video streams inside can be encoded with different codecs, although usually they are with H.264 compression. You can try configuring the 3D Vision Video Player to use the Haali Media Splitter and ffdhshow Video Decoder (of course after installing them)…

  • 13 David // Sep 6, 2010 at 03:22

    Thanks a lot. I can watch the videos now, perfectly.

  • 14 Paul // Dec 8, 2010 at 11:46

    i was following your post to setup my 3D vision Video player to use Haali Media Spliter and ffdhshow. However i do not know how to configure it. can anyone help me out?

  • 15 Philby // Dec 19, 2010 at 07:43

    Hi all, I installed the Haali Media Splitter and ffdhshow Video Decoder and now Nvidia 3D player plays the MKV file sort of,
    Dd I install the right one?

    If yes, then what do I have to do in Nvidiai player to get MKV 3D to play right? Thanks Phil

    A more recent version exist, but many web page on NVidia web site is pointing to an older version.

    This kind of software are rare but this one is still not usable. It has no option about stretching. It’s like the developers didn’t try it with any video on the web.

    If NVidia provide a video card for 3D but no usable software exist what’s the goal of it?
