3D BD/MKV support added to JRiver Media Center
It was really just a matter of time after madVR added 3D to its feature-set, and the time has come. With JRiver Media Center (unsurprisingly) being quick to add in official support. Fantastic news for fans of BD-Lite.
Media Center 21 introduces support for natively playing 3D Blu-rays and 3D MKV files. This feature will be available in builds 65 and above.
MC21 uses the 3D decoding in LAV Filters and the 3D rendering in madVR to achieve this.
This will allow 3D Blu-rays and 3D MKV files to be played in full 3D on a 3D TV. Only unmodified 3D Blu-rays or MKV files created from 3D Blu-rays with MakeMKV are supported at this time, other 3D file formats, like Side-by-Side or Over-Under are not supported in this initial version, but may be supported later.
To use 3D playback in Media Center, you need to fullfill the requirements listed here, and follow the setup process outlined below.
If you have any questions regarding the setup, please ask them here, and we’ll try to adjust the setup guide as appropriate to make it more clear.
