How to Watch 3D Movies & Videos on PC / Laptop With Polarized 3D Glasses

Nowadays the popularity of 3D movies, 3D videos, or 3D TV shows is becoming strong enough to attract people around the world. 3D Movies or 3D Videos create a different illusion that feels like it's happening around us and gives awesome experience and entertainment to us. But how to watch 3D movies on PC or Laptop? 

If you think that to watch 3D movies you need to go to Cinema hall theaters or need to own a heavy budget 3D TV then don't worry, because you'll wonder to know that you can watch those 3D Movies or 3D Videos on your Laptop and PC or even on smart TV which has a normal non-3D display.

Yes! Today we will explain to you How to Watch 3D Videos & Movies on Your Laptops/PC with polarized cinema glasses even if you have a Non-3D Display.

Did you know that the basic idea of 3D images is that each of your eyes must see a slightly different image, and the technique for creating this illusion of depth in an image is called Stereoscopy.

Watching 3D Movies on PC with 3D Glasses -

There are two main commercial uses of 3D technology, one called Anaglyph 3D and one Polarized 3D. Polarized 3D uses filters that will allow only images that have similar polarization and Anaglyph 3D encodes images used by each eye using filters of different colors (red and cyan).

  • We will usually find the Polarized glasses in Cinemas and modern 3D TV’s.
  • We will use Anaglyph glasses in normal display’s i.e. PC, Laptop, Tablet, etc. 

Therefore, if we want to watch a 3D movie & 3D videos or a YouTube 3D video using our normal non-3D display then we need Anaglyph glasses and also required software to play the video. Below are details on what you need-

1.) You Need the 3D Glasses:

You can easily find the 3D Anaglyph or 3D Polarized glasses here on Amazon.

2.) You Need the 3D Movie/Video & Software:

First, you need to Download a 3D Movie or Video file and you can check that a 3D movie file played with normal software will show two different images one next to another (also called side by side). So you need to Install Software like KM Player, Cyberlink PowerDVD or VLC Media Player.

  • Playing a 3D Video file is very simple in KM Player, open the file in KM Player and you will see the 3D Button at the bottom left, simply click the 3D button and wear your 3D glasses and enjoy the Movie.

  • You can also use VLC Media player to watch 3D Videos, open the file and click on "Tools" and then select the "Effects And Filters" option from the drop-down menu, Now click on "Video Effects" tab and in this section click on "Advanced" tab, in the Advanced tab, put a checkmark on Anaglyph 3D. option and now wear your 3D glasses and enjoy watching 3D Movies or Videos on your Laptop/PC.

    Why we can't saw 3d movies in pc with polarized 3d glass?

    1. Unless your laptop screen/monitor can produce two simultaneous images (of a 3D movie) at separate polarization, and you have the corresponding polarized eyewear, you will not see 3D.

    2. Sir. For clarification, it means you will not see 3d if your has no two simultaneous images
