It's doable. There hasn't been any development on it yet from the standpoint of transcoding. When direct playing many of the apps will already be able to do this. Thanks.

I have been able to get kodi to work with the conversion of the 3D to 2D.  However it only works within my home network.  Do you know of any other apps that will work with Emby and allow the transcoding to 2D.

 

Or do you know of a way to configure Kodi to do this outside the home network.

 

thanks...

Have you tried using the emby mobile apps while away from home?

I have the Emby Mobile app on my phone.  I did not know it could render a 3D movie in 2D.  I have not found any settings on the mobile app to accomplish this.  Can you let me know how this is accomplished as this would be the perfect solution.

 

thanks...

Have you tried to just play the video?

Of course I have...

 

It does not prompt you for anything, it just plays the 3d video.  Which is useless when playing on my phone with the 2 pictures side by side or top and bottom with some other 3d videos.  It does show that the movie is 3d before playing it.  While the movie is playing, there is no options available to select a 2D image.  You can change quality of the stream, subtitles, etc...

 

Is there a setting I am missing?  Something I need to install on the server perhaps?  Emby is current on the server.  The emby app is current on the phone.

 

thanks...

Ok thanks. I think we just still have work to do there to transcode it to 2D.

It has been a few years since I started this discussion.  I have noticed with Certain 3D movies that they automatically convert to 2D before being displayed.  I have not been able to figure out why this only works with certain 3D movies.

 

It will convert to 2D in the windows Edge browser

 

It will render in 3D in the Chrome browser

 

It will convert to 2D in the Windows Emby app

 

This poses an issue as I used the windows emby app on the PC connected to my 3D TV.  So if I want to watch 3D on certain 3D movies I have to use a different app.

 

Is there any way to place an option on the server to disable this feature?

 

thanks for all the hard work you do...

There isn't any special handling of this nature. My guess is that it's probably tied to whether or not one is direct playing or transcoding. If we can look at some examples then I can provide more detail. thanks.
