HTML5 Multi-Stereoscopic 3D Video Player Without The Need of Flash

October 20th, 2013 · No Comments · General 3D News


If you have been following the blog for a while already you might have read the article introducing the p2gStereoStage Flash-based stereoscopic 3D (S3D) media player about three years ago. Well, now the author of that software has made available a new Multi-Stereoscopic 3D Video Player that relies on HTML5 instead of Adobe Flash to play back stereoscopic 3D videos and there is a separate HTML5 player for stereo 3D photos as well. The idea behind this project is that you could play back stereoscopic 3D photos and videos on various devices with an up to date browser even if they do not have support for Adobe’s Flash player, they only need to have proper HTML5 support. The player already should work just fine on all up to date Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Opera browsers, though there might be some performance related issues on Apple Safari and Microsoft Internet Explorer as well as on some mobile device browsers. The stereo 3D video player can play WEBM and MP4 video formats and provides pretty much all of the most common stereoscopic 3D viewing methods such as Side by Side, Over/Under, Cross Eye, Anaglyph, Checkerboard and Row/Column Interleaved and even 3D Vision support is currently in the works (not yet functioning properly). The HTML5 flash video player is also available in a 2D version, but you’d probably be interested more in the stereoscopic 3D version. The software is not available for free use, but if you are interested in using it for commercial projects you can contact the author and license it.
