Re: cannot play transcoded 2d-to-3d VR files with non-english filename

Hi, I didn't see this thread until now. DirectShowSource uses native codecs, typically supplied by the K-Kite codec pack, if my install guidance was followed. These can leverage GPU hardware. I introduced FFMS2, which is based on FFMpeg, as it does not need native codecs to read many file types so i...

Re: 2D to 3D conversion only plays for a few minutes then stops

I am in the UK, I know that we are in differnt time zones. Right now we should both be awake though! I have spent the afternoon installing and setting up the BigScreen Steam VR solution on my system. I detailed the spec of my system in the install guide, but essentially it is an MSI GF65 Thin Laptop...

Re: 2D to 3D conversion only plays for a few minutes then stops

The other user with an issue reported this: "I tested to see if it is able to run the videos better over bigscreen dlna compared to just VLC, and surprisingly bigscreen DLNA was more reliable? I figured it would be the other way around but VLC would just outright stop the videos at random point...

Re: 2D to 3D conversion only plays for a few minutes then stops

Yet another user is also using the BigScreen Steam version with VLC and UMS release 13.0.1. They have been using this setup with a Vive Pro headset for some time and I have had extensive discussions with them, see here. It is working extremely well for them: https://www.reddit.com/r/bigscreen/commen...

Re: 2D to 3D conversion only plays for a few minutes then stops

In the attached log file: Video Starts Playing in UMS 18:50:24.955 Unexpected VLC request 18:50:29.685 VLC Causes UMS IO exception 18:50:29.736 Video Stops Playing in UMS 18:50:51.006 It looks like VLC stops communicating with UMS about 5 seconds into the video, but UMS carries on playing it for ano...

Re: Auto 2D to 3D using MPC instead of VLC

If it's a codec issue, try installing the "mega" K-Lite Codec pack rather than the standard one that I suggest in the guide: https://codecguide.com/download_kl.htm That might well help. MPC-HC does not seem to support DLNA so cannot be used directly with UMS. Although, there are some MPC-H...

Is there a renderer config file for the Web Player?

Hi, it's threedguru here. I want to enable 2D to 3D conversion for the Web Player. I should be able to add a setting to the relevant renderer config file to do this. I cannot see an obvious one for the Web Player. Could you point me in the right direction please? I'm hoping this isn't a code change.

On-the-fly 2D to 3D Video Conversion

Hi, I am interested in Virtual Reality and 3D video. I have been converting 2D video to 3D for sometime, using an offline process, for then viewing in 3D in my VR headset. This is a great way to watch all kinds of content more immersively. A few weeks ago I had the idea that it would be nice to be a...
