3D Video Player

CNET Editors' review

Media players have reached the point where free ones all offer pretty much the same performance and features, and, in many cases, the same source code and codecs. To stand out from the crowd, you've got to break out of the box, and in video that means 3D. Ramka's 3D Video Player is a shareware video player than not only plays regular and 3D videos but also converts videos to 3D anaglyph stereoscopic playback. You'll need your 3D glasses to view video in 3D, of course. The trial version of 3D Video Player is free, but the 3D conversion feature is disabled: it will play existing 3D stereoscopic videos, though with a watermark on output. Of course, 3D Video Player also handles most of the regular and HD video and audio formats you're likely to encounter. It doesn't have all of the many options and features of the well-known open-source free players, though few if any of those we're aware of have 3D Video Player's special talent.

As a media player, 3D Video Player has a stylish but simple interface, with no options or settings we could find. It has basic controls, starting with a large, central Open button and including full screen, repeat, playlist, a volume slider, and a mute button. But there's also a prominent 3D button, and clicking it applies red-cyan 3D processing to the sample image, a vivid demonstration of what this simple but interesting player does. We started by playing a few ordinary 2D videos from our collection, each of which played just fine in 3D Video Player. Clicking the 3D button produced an onscreen notice that the 3D feature is disabled in the trial version.

We downloaded a 3D stereoscopic video freely shared on YouTube. It opened and played normally in 3D video player, though clicking 3D placed a watermark over the image. Nevertheless, it clearly showed how well 3D Video Player works at displaying 3D videos, and how simple it is to use. If you like the idea, we definitely recommend trying 3D Video Player. The full version is inexpensive, especially considering what it does.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of 3D Video Player 3.3.8.

    Pros

    I tried many my home videos, HD videos from youtube and some dvds - 3D player seems to support most of video formats. Of course you need a good quality red/cyan glasses for better 3D effects
    And I've found 50% discount for this software here:

    "It is very nice"

    August 5, 2013  |   By mpeg5

    Version: 3D Video Player 3.4.4

    Pros

    . Realistic at most, with the adjustment of the shift, but especially the depth adjustment seems to really get out the video images from the screen. when connected to a projector is incredible.

    Cons

    amazing. Much better than the last generation of 3D TVs.

    Summary

    Superb, guaranteed. Trust me I've tried lots. This is the absolute number one

    "Best player to watch 2D in 3D + 7day free. Amazing!"

    May 10, 2012  |   By radjmesh80

    Version: 3D Video Player 3.3.5

    Pros

    Greatly impressed by the quality of red cyan on-the-go 3D conversion - the instantly converted 3D video is the same HQ as the original video, found no flaws in it. Besides the app is absolutely free to use for 7 days (not many software manufacturers offer free trials nowadays)! I have bought my license after having watched all 2D videos during that 7-day trial period, just wanted 3D Video Player for myself for good.

    Cons

    No cons. Using 3D Video Player every time I want to watch 3D movies on my PC as well as connect it to my TV for kids to watch red cyan cartoons

    Summary

    Fine quality software for 3D experience using classic anaglyph red cyan glasses. It's free for 7 days to try so that's great if you want to watch a regular movie in 3D the easiest way. Recommended!

    "Television 3D"

    April 22, 2012  |   By Schmedley100

    Version: 3D Video Player 3.3.5

    Pros

    Works with Anagraph

    Cons

    Limited to 1950 standards for 3D















    d

    Summary

    The Samsung, among others, provide for side by side input and triggers the appropiate glasses, not Anagraph.

    This is the application for computer connected to TV may move 3D ahead a little faster.

    "Best 3d Video Player i have ever tried."

    January 30, 2012  |   By siddxxxx

    Version: 3D Video Player 3.3.1

    Pros

    The 3d Video Player is the best way to watch a movie in 3d by just clicking a button.The 3d video converter is also a very nice product.Both programs has very easy to use Interface and supports almost every popular video format.So ,don't waste your money by going to 3d cinema theater ,just download 3d video player and watch your favorite movies ,videos in 3d :).

    Cons

    The audio sometimes lag behind the frames but it happens 1 out of 20.Not a big deal.
    Rest is very good.

    Summary

    In total ,it is a very very good and useful product.3d player makers really did a very good job.I think they should add some more features in 3d video converter like "Editing the video" to be converted etc.This makes the converter much more popular than it is now.I also wish to see another product from them which has combination of both player and converter.

    "better playback in 3D mode for large video"

    August 23, 2011  |   By JohnBakers

    Version: 3D Video Player 1.7.6

    Pros

    Liked it very much as it's much cheaper alternative to 3D home cinema. I had 1.7.1 version of this player before and was quite satisfied with it, despite some things. But have to admit that playback in 3D mode is a LOT better in this latest version.

    Cons

    I did have some minor problems with 1.7.1 version, like a couple of times video & sound in 3D mode were a bit unsynchronized. But that was probably smth with my pc. Anyway in 1.7.6 everything converts and plays just fine

    Summary

    Now will recommend this 3D player to anyone, no problem at all, it's good

    "Fair price and lots of fun"

    August 12, 2011  |   By dmitrio

    Version: 3D Video Player 1.7.4

    Pros

    Cartoons look amazing in 3D - my daughter loves them!!
    The trial version is fully functional
    The license price if modest

    Cons

    Need some basic video editing features.

    Summary

    Do not waste time loading low resolution videos to the player - it works fine with sharp and vivid ones. And yes, the player is absolutely easy to use.
