So, this past weekend I did some research on how to rip and play 3D Blu Ray movies from my Emby server and I'm just as confused as I was before searching. I'm hoping someone in the forums can shed some light for me.
First off, do I need a 3D Blu Ray player just to rip 3D movies? I have a Blu Ray drive, but its not 3D. If I need a 3D drive just to rip 3D movies then the rest of my questions are moot. However, I have successfully been able to rip 3D movies with MakeMKV but they only play in 2D. Which leads me to my next question...
What do I need to PLAY 3D ripped movies, software and hardware wise? As I said, I have been able to both rip 3D movies to mkv and also original disc format ('copy and paste,' so to speak). My computer is less than 6 months old and I have quad cores, 64GB RAM and a upper tier video card that is "VR ready." I have it connected to a 3D ready TV which I have used to watch 3D movies with my stand-alone 3d blu ray player. I also have Kodi installed for Emby. Even with Kodi reading the movie directly off my PC instead of the Emby server, it still won't play in 3D, just 2D. Kodi seems to think it is 3D-it shows the little 3D glasses icon--but playback is 2D. Am I missing some special codec?
Finally, if I already have all I need, what settings to I need to set to make it work? Kodi allows you to change the 3D format, but the options are odd and don't seem compatible with modern 3D movies. For example, you can do red/green but that's, like, for 1950's era 3D movies. Or you can do side by side, but that just shows the movie in two boxes side by side. Maybe that's meant for VR, I dunno. There's also top and bottom--I have no idea what that's for!
