How to make trial version of Stereoscopic Player work like full version [Guide]

StereoscopicPlayer [1]So you have bought a 3D computer that came with 3D glasses and NVIDIA 3D Vision Video Player? And, now that you have got some 3D stereoscopic video files (say, MKV), you believe that they are gonna work? The bad news is that they won’t even though you install some popular codec packages. The video may look horrible, be choppy, or not even play! Wanna try Stereoscopic Player? It works, but meh, it’s not freeware. In fact, NVIDIA 3D Vision Video Player is believed to be a gutted version of Stereoscopic Player sold to NVIDIA. Dang it! Is there a way that we can make the trial version of Stereoscopic Player work for the entire 3D stereoscopic video file? Fortunately, the answer is yes! Today, I will show you how to do that. Follow the 4 easy steps below:

For playback, follow the steps below:

Not sure about the aspect ratio (aka AR) of the file? Use MediaInfo (download here [6], install (or run as a portable app), open, drag-n-drop the file onto the interface). MediaInfo is available in GUI/CLI, Windows/Linux/OSX, 32/64 bit and/or installer/portable version. Get what you like! Always download the latest stable version.
3D works only in Full Screen (Alt+Enter) or Window (Esc) mode. To Play, you may use Ctrl+P.

Relish stereoscopic 3D!

P.S. Performance-wise, I find free sView (reviewed here [7]) to be far superior to Stereoscopic Player.
