YouTube supports stereo 3D video: video containing two streams, one for each eye. In order for a video to be viewable in 3D on YouTube, it must be filmed in 3D. Depending on the way that you recorded the video, you'll have to follow one of the following two steps:
(Recommended) I have a 3D camera, camcorder, mobile phone or gadget
A 3D camera works by recording video from two side-by-side cameras and then outputs frames with images from both cameras. Many 3D cameras place 3D information in the video file itself, which can be detected by YouTube or set manually, as explained in the Setting up 3D video section below.
I don't have a 3D device
While having a 3D camera makes creating 3D video a lot simpler, you can still create 3D video for YouTube without one. For more information on how to create 3D video with two side-by-side cameras, take a look at our 3D editor guide.
Microsoft Silverlight 3D
On 3DVisionLive.com, you’ll find tons of stereoscopic 3D videos and photos. Video content such as movie trailers, music videos, and sports clips are streamed in 3D via Silverlight. And you’ll also find lots of high resolution 3D photos to browse through. When you sign-up for the site, you can create your own custom 3D photo galleries and share them with family, friends or other community members. Photos on the site can be viewed in full color and resolution using as well as in anaglyph (blue/red) mode with NVIDIA 3D Vision technology.
So what exactly is a 3D PC? Check out this blog post I published last spring on the introduction of the 3D PC category by NVIDIA, us, and others. I’m currently in the process of building a new PC which will be “3D Vision Ready” based on the 3D PC requirements and requirements listed here by NVIDIA. Look for a blog post on this in the coming months.
Back in November, NVIDIA introduced a new community website for GeForce users (people with NVIDIA’s GeForce GPUs) at GeForce.com.
From early 2012, French IPTV operator Orange plans to introduce a 3D channel on Dailymotion dedicated to user-generated stereoscopic content. It is also to engage Orange 3D subscribers in a multi-screen strategy on tablets and smartphones which will enable them to view 3D content seamlessly on different devices.
The initiative follows the recent acquisition of 49% of online video service Dailymotion, which is the leading competitor to YouTube in many European countries.
“We could envisage the 2012 Olympics being viewed on mobile devices connected to our service,” said Ghislaine Le Rhun Gautier, head of Orange's 3D project.
Orange would look to negotiate 3D rights for events such as the Olympics with France Televisions and TF1 as it has done previously for UEFA Champions League 3D transmission.
“A 3D Olympics will be the greatest opportunity for our customers to experience 3D,” declared Le Rhun Gautier. “The event could be the catalyst which truly kicks the market off for 3D.”
A prize will be awarded to the best homemade 3D productions on the Dailymotion site: “We need to be cautious of the quality of the UGC,” she added.
