This post is an update version from my older post (MPC for stereoscopic 3D media player). On current post we’ll use the latest version of K-Lite Codec Pack, avisynth and i also included screenshots on every steps.
The following setting was tested on my new laptop, ASUS A55V, 64 bit Windows 7 home premium, and only for Red Cyan Anaglyph glasses. For the other colors of anaglyph glasses please read my previous post. Ok, here’s the detail steps.
Dowload avisynth from free-codecs website, and choose Avisynth 2.5.8.
Unzip and Install with Full Type of Install option.
Download Pantarheon 3D MSI installer here.
Double click the installer to install Pantarheon 3D AviSynth Toolbox.
Note that MPC (Media Player Classic) and ffdshow are bundled in full version of K-Lite Codec Pack.
Download K-Lite Codec Pack 9.2.0 from free-codec website, and select Full version.
Choose Advance mode while installing K-Lite Codec Pack.
Set any component to fddshow (select ffdshow if available), this will install fddshow during K-Lite Codec installation.
Set file Association to Media Player Classic, this will install (MPC) Media Player Classic during K-Lite Codec Installation.
– ffdshow video decoder configuration
Navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > K-Lite Codec Pack > Configuration > ffdshow Video Decoder
Click Codec Menu and scroll down the right menu table to look for “Raw Video“, set the decoder option to “All Supported“.
Apply and Close.
– ffdshow RAW video processor configuration
Navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > K-Lite Codec Pack > Configuration > ffdshow RAW Video Processor
Scroll down left menu to find Avisynth Menu, and check on the check-box.
Paste the following script to the right text box.
c = ConvertToRGB32() w = c.width()/2 h = c.height()/2 LeftRight3DToRCAnaglyph(c).Lanczos4Resize(w, h)
Download script here (in case if you have copy and paste problem).
Save And Close.
– Media Player Classic (MPC) configuration
Navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > K-Lite Codec Pack > Media Player Classic
Press “O” or navigate to View > Options, to open the option windows
On Internal Filter, unchecked everything from Source Filters.
Click External Filter, and then click Add Filters.
Select Ffdshow Video Decoder from filter list
Change option from “Set Merit” to “Prefer“.
Do the same for ffdshow audio decoder and ffdshow raw video filter.
Apply and Close.
By now Any video played by MPC (with current setting) will be treated as 3D SBS and will be converted into 3D anaglyph. So when you wanna play non SBS video you have to disable avisynth by un-checking Avisynth option on ffdshow RAW video processor (see ffdshow RAW video processor configuration).
MPC with ffdshow RAW video processor – Avisynth checked / enabled
MPC with ffdshow RAW video processor – Avisynth unchecked / disabled
Download video for test here (Youtube 3D option SBS format).
That’s all, hope no more problem playing 3D movies with media player classic home cinema using the above configuration.
