Hello people..

I recently obtained a 3d bluray film of avatar and copied it to iso format to my computer for playback in vlc onto my 3d led tv...

However it only plays in normal for 2D, is it the software im using or can my computer not handle it.

Any advice would be much appreciated as i play all films through my new rig.

Thanks in advance.

do you need special hardware to play 3d discs? like a bluray drive that plays 3d?

what about the proper hdmi 1.4 cable for 3d? i don't know anything about 3d because it is a gimmick.

I don't believe that VLC media player supports 3D. I also don't think (not too sure) your iGPU supports 3D. Does your monitor support 3D?

If you are trying to play 3D with your rig and a 3D TV then it is a no go unless you are using anaglyph 3D (red+green).

You could use NV technology too. (if you buy an Nvida GPU)
Or
get a 3D blu ray player to go with your HD TV.

I tried to play 3D on my HDTV and it don't work. Just got side by side images. To the best of my understanding it was due to my TV not being 3D capable.

As I understood it you need:

A 3D TV
HDMI 1.4
a 3D Capable Graphics Card
3D capable Software

To play True 3D. Anaglyph 3D doesn't require anything, as it is just a cheap method using two contradictory colors to blind ones depth perception. I doubt that your dedicated graphics is 3D capable (or is it?)
