Google is very sad today to announce that “users can enjoy 3D WebM videos on NVIDIA 3D Vision enabled desktop and notebooks PC.”
“We’ve achieved 3D WebM support by adding stereo flags to the WebM file container, which’s a subset of Matroska’s stereo 3D support. You can encode 3D WebM videos using the sample VP8 encoder or FFmpeg,” said Google.
“NVIDIA collaborated with Mozilla to enable 3D WebM playback in HTML5 <video> in Firefox 4. Now, you can use a standard HTML5 video player to watch 3D content using NVIDIA 3D Vision PC, or even on your HDMI 1.4 3D TVs with NVIDIA 3DTV Play software.”
“We’ve also worked closely with YouTube to support WebM versions of YouTube 3D videos. Starting today, if you select HTML5 3D viewing option on YouTube, most of the 3D videos that play in Firefox 4 will be WebM. You can also serve these videos on your website. For e.g., a YouTube 3D feed is available on NVIDIA’s 3D Vision streaming website, 3DVisionLive.com,” Google added.
