Playback of packed 3D (3D ISO)


#102

But this over/under isn’t the normal one with half the FullHD resolution per image, but it’s FullHD over/under which isn’t supported by most devices…


#103

I’ve tried it, and the image will display in full without the over/under effect added, but the images don’t line up once the over/under is triggered.

They do on my LG TV’s internal software, oddly enough, but not using the Vero 4K with OSMC.


#104

Yeah I understand that it’s full resolution rather than half resolution, and isn’t standard, but the 3D looks wildly wildly better that way.

I was just curious if that was something that could be fixed in software so I could encode them with Atmos sound and play them through one box going forward.


#105

Yes – half-resolution MVC is not as challenging as FP output. We had half-resolution MVC working on Vero 2 before Kodi v17 (changes in Krypton broke this).

#106

Thanks, Sam. Let me know if there’s anything I can do to help with any of this.


#107

Well, definitely! That’s the reason so many are waiting for the 3D MVC FP feature to come. And because there’s no trancoding necessary, a simple remux of a 3D Blu-ray would be sufficient…


#108

Do you still think full resolution 3D is going to come? I would certainly buy another box if this was case. There is a fork working for krypton. Not sure if that is any help to you or not?

#109

That fork appears to be for Microsoft Windows, which isn’t related to Vero 4K. I think it only uses ffmpeg for decoding as well; which would be quite limiting on an ARM based platform.


#110

Yeah it is for windows. I was hoping some of the logic could be applied but sounds like it’s a no? I assume you’re not close to releasing a test build.


#111

There’s been a little bit of ‘partial’ testing by some users on this forum.
The hint detection might be re-usable, but is not the more involving part. The difficult part is AV InfoFrame signalling and configuring the decoder correctly.

I’m a bit confused by this discussion. I thought full resolution MVC support was what this was all about. Isn’t half res SBS just natively supported by 3D TV’s anyway? I’ve never had a problem playing those files with a plain old Fire TV with a Plex client or whatever. All I care about is full res MVC.


#113

It is about full resolution MVC… Half resolution SBS is working already with the Vero 4k. The discussion about these was just a side discussion with @clawforce.

This thread is about the playback implementation of the 3D Blu-ray standard: framepacked 3D.


#114

It depends.

  • SBS content can already be played back correctly on Vero 4K
  • MVC content cannot yet be played back and output as SBS on Vero 4K
  • MVC content cannot yet be played back and output as Frame Packed on Vero 4K

The last two are what we’re working on.


#115

Are we any closer on this Sam?


#116

I have a forceable option and will make a test thread shortly. We’re making a lot of progress with things lately.

#117

Wow great news.


#118

indeed. holding me back from my vero being my primary media player!

cant wait to test this


#119

Any idea when the test build will be available?


#120

When it’s ready :slight_smile:

It will be tested by the internal team first.

great to hear this is coming around nicely, have to start ripping my 3D BD now i guess :wink:
