Stereoscopic 3D Video Formats

Bino plays stereoscopic 3D videos. Such videos have separate views for the left and right eye and thus allow depth perception through stereopsis.

The left and right view of a stereoscopic video can be stored using different layouts. Sometimes the two views are stored as two separate video streams, but most often both views are packed into a single video stream and need to be unpacked by the video player.

Supported input layouts (modern formats can be autodetected):

To display a stereoscopic video, the left and right view have to be prepared in a special way so that the left eye sees the left view and the right eye sees the right view. Different display techniques use different approaches to achieve this separation of the two views.
