Watch 3D Half/Full SBS MKV files in 2D with VLC 2.0.5
published Wednesday, April 03, 2013
Just got a movie in 3D Half/Full SBS MKV and trying to play it with VLC 2.0.5 just show up the 2 images side by side. One solution is to watch it as regular 2D movie by using the script below:
# VLC 3D, version 0.2, 2013-04-03 by Sébastien Grosjean
# Allow to watch 3D Half/Full SBS MKV files in 2D with VLC 2.0.5
if [ -n "$1" ]
/Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/VLC --video-splitter=wall --wall-cols=2 --wall-rows=1 --wall-element-aspect=16:10 --wall-active=0,1 --monitor-par=1:2 "$1"
echo "Usage: Pass the 3D SBS mkv file as an option."
echo "For subtitles, use :"
echo "- right align (VLC > Preferences > Subtitles & OSD > Show All > Input / Codecs > Subtitles codecs > Subtitles > Subtitle justification > Right)"
echo "- and smaller font (VLC > Preferences > Subtitles & OSD > Display Settings > Font Size > Smaller)"
Notice the work around for subtitles, making them smaller and right aligned.
