Dialymotion’s New Online 3D Video Channel is Now Available

December 19th, 2011 · No Comments · General 3D News

The french mobile Operator Orange together with the video sharing website Dailymotion have launched their dedicated online 3D channel online as they have previously announced, although they did it earlier than expected. In this online 3D channel both companies plan to have both professional generated stereoscopic 3D content as well as user generated 3D content, something that sounds nice in theory, but is already showing that can be problematic. At the moment the 3D channel has 43 videos available, but it seems that ot all of them are actually in 3D format and that happened probably due to users uploading 2D videos and marking them as 3D ones and they got featured there although they should not. So this can be a bit of a problem giving not so good start for the initiative, unless a better management of the content featured on the 3D channel is provided. The flash-based player that Dailymotion has with stereoscopic 3D support currently supports user selectable modes for: 2D, Side by Side, Red/Cyan glasses or Interleaved formats for viewing the 3D content. In terms of ability to embed 3D videos from Dailymotion (on your website or blog for example), there is no problem as the embed code uses iframe code and you get the 3D control options on embedded videos as well. Orange and Dailymotion plan to have the content of the 3D channel also accessible on mobile phones, but that should happen in February next year. We’ll see how things will develop and if Dailymotion will start offering an interesting alternative to YouTube where you would be able to upload and share 3D content online, for now they have a lot of catching up to do. You are welcome to share your experience with Dailymotion in 3D…
