    Phoronix: VLC Has Begun Working On Some 3D Video Playback Support

    It's been a while since last having anything to report on with VLC with the VLC 3.0 release still not available, but thanks to this year's Google Summer of Code, there was an interesting project around working on 3D format support...

    This is great! Hopefully this will mean we can play 3D Blu-ray rips natively.

      Finally - I've been waiting for a 3D video player for Linux for over a year.

          Eh, I'd rather have proper Blu-ray support to begin with. But I guess different people work on different modules.

            Use active 3D glasses (the ones with electronics onboard that switch on and off the crystals in the lenses to cover one eye and then the other), not the passive ones (the ones using polarized lenses).

              DRM is a big issue for bluray support in opensource programs.

                No thanks. I've seen actual 3d projections before. Dimensionally projected into the air, it was awesome. Color saturation sucked, but it was natural to look at and felt right with no equipment on my face.

                  I just wanted to point out that "eye burn out" and "headaches" happen only with passive 3D glasses.

                    It is indeed. Can't wait for version 3.0, which will supposedly have menus!
