How to Watch 3D Movies on PC Using VLC Media Player

Written by Agboola Sodiq

VLC is a popular video player, thanks to its ease of use and its adaptability. It is an open source program that runs some of the most common video formats. You can even use it with some simple modifications to play movies in 3D.

However, the only problem wth vlc is that it supports Red and Cyan 3D viewing option only. So you need to get a 3D SBS (Side-By-Side) movie and watch it using your VLC media player.

For those who need to watch 3D SBS movies on their PC, here’s how you can do so.

  1. First, you need to download a 3D movie that should be in SBS (Side- By-Side) format.
  2. Now open your VLC media player, in that open the movie file that you have downloaded, open the 3D movie in the player.
  3. In the VLC player select Tools, and then choose Effects and Filters option from the menu.3D4. A new window named Adjustments and Effects open up. You need to click on the Video Effects tab.3D5. A number of tabs will be available under the Video Effects tab. Look for a tab named Advanced and click on it.3196. Under the Advanced tab, check the checkbox corresponding to the option Anaglyph 3D. Anaglyph 3D images are those images that contain two images of differently filtered colors, one for each eye.3D7. That’s it, you are done. Now just put your 3D glasses and watch the movie.
