The New Stereoscopic Player Version 1.6.9 Comes with MVC Decoder

March 19th, 2011 · 13 Comments · General 3D News

The latest version of the Stereoscopic Player 1.6.9 by Peter Wimmer now comes with a built-in AVC/MVC decoder, meaning that you are now able to play Blu-ray content (MPEG-4 AVC) directly from the player, including Blu-ray 3D video files that use the MPEG-4 MVC codec. I should make it clear that this means you will be able to play directly video files from Blu-ray discs, but not the Blu-ray itself like you would do with a fully featured Blu-ray video player. The decoder that is included in the Stereoscopic Player is CoreCodec’s 3D CoreMVC video decoder available as a DirectShow filter that is expected to be available after the release of CoreAVC 2.5 later this month.

The most important new features in 1.6.9:

– Support for *.ssif files of 3D-Blu-ray disks
– Generic viewing methods for autostereoscopic displays (single/multi-viewer)
– Support for MP4, Matroska, Flash and MPEG-TS container formats

Just a reminder that the Stereoscopic Player is a commercial software, and it is time limited to 5 minutes of playback per run version for evaluation without buying a license to unlock it, so you can try the new MVC capabilities. Another important note is that the AVC/MVC decoder that you get with the latest Stereoscopic Player is a 30-day trial version, to continue using it after that, you need to get a license for the player and register it!

    Heh! I sent Peter a sample of files shot with the new JVC 3D camcorder only a couple of days ago, asking whether he could implement support for the camcorder’s MVC format. Quite a coincidende! :)

    This is great news, thanks for the heads-up Bloody! If the CUDA acceleration works for MVC this might actually be a better solution than PDVD10 / TMT5 for people with older Nvidia cards.

    Does it work with cuda?
    I like to see seeking feature in full screen mode like in PDVD.

    The support to DXVA2 donĀ“t work with ati 4650 mobility. Moreover some codecs, as for example, MPC stoped working.

    Straight from the doom9 forum stated by BetaBoy
    CoreCodec Founder –
    “the confusion is that the 3D Vision Blog stated it was a part of a ‘pack’ and that is not correct. Although the ‘core’ of CoreAVC is obviously shared with CoreMVC it is a brand new product altogether. Anytime a CoreMVC release comes out it will include the latest ‘core’ of CoreAVC. CUDA is a TODO and we need to jump through a few issues.”

    wow, the performance with mvc in comparison to pdvd and tmt really sucked. I don’t know why, but it probably ran with no more than 15fps, whereas tmt has occasional stuttering and pdvd runs things perfectly.

    Have they fixed the ID clash with Nvidia’s viewer yet?

    The video viewer bundled with NVidia is a rebadged limited version of this – but they haven’t changed some internal ID string so it’s impossible to associate videos with stereoviewer if you have NVision installed.
