Playing movies off my pc to my tv in 3d?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just bought a new 47" Vizio 3d tv yesterday and I was wondering if I could play hd movies from my pc via hdmi cable to my tv in 3d?

I've been searching around and haven't been able to find too much information yet.

3D over HDMI is possible only with HDMI v1.4/4a, which I doubt your graphics card has. Although, if your TV supports USB drives, you could copy files to the drive and play from the TV itself.

Read up on the manual and make sure the video is in a format supported by the TV. Is

the one?

This means your TV does not have USB2.0 ports. Only TV's with USB2.0 ports can read movies.

You need a gpu with hdmi 1.4 , also a bluray drive with 3d support and a software that plays 3d movies like cyberlink power dvd. I play 3d games and movies all the time , its not hard

I am interested in doing 3D from PC as well. But 3D over HDMI can also be v1.3 ex. PS3 the problems comes with the sound as it is not able to do loss less format with 1.3 and 1.4 seems to pass it. If I understand it correctly. I am bought some optical cable to use it from PS3 to receiver since my receiver is not 3D capable will have to use this option. Maybe I just need to do PC to Receiver optical or replace receiver with a 3D capable since optical will not do loss less format either.

To OP you should be able to do it as long as your GPU support it and have a 3D capable 3D BR reader.

Thanks for the help guys but I have another question.

If I get a blu ray player that does 2d to 3d, I'm assuming I can watch netflix in 3d since pretty much all of those players now have netflix on them?
