YouTube will convert all 1080p videos to stereoscopic 3D

Posted April 15, 2012 by Stuff Staff in News


Sure, a lot of computers don’t have 3D capabilities – but with smart 3D TVs streaming YouTube, the video giant has decided to automatically convert every new 1080p video upload to 3D. But is that real 3D you ask?

YouTube says that its clever 3D converter uses the growing library of true 3D videos on YouTube to learn the difference between that and 2D. It uses color, spatial layout, motion, and other characteristics to create 3D depth for each frame on a 2D video. Hey presto, instant 3D viewing. All you have to do is chose 3D from the quality settings menu – and crack your 3D glasses out too, of course.
