    Why not just put the 3D movies in a specific folder.. let's say, "3D Movies" (lol) and then make a smart category for 3D Movies wich only shows movies in that folder?

    I found mp4 a better format for 3D playback than mkv, just seems to play a little smoother on my setup with full SBS 3D for some reason

    Here's mediainfo for Avatar 3D converted with DVDfab to full SBS mp4

    The aspect ratio and width are dead give away it's 3D, not to mention the filename, "Avatar (3D) [HD].mp4" and the fact that it's in a separate '3D' folder

    Same video after remuxing to 3d mkv (mk3d extension refuses to load in stereoscopic player)
    (The mp4 file still plays better than the mkv file)

    The MP3D plugin was working till I did a reinstall in November. Haven't been able to get it working since.
    So if Moving Pictures could play them natively, that would be perfect :)

    Sorry this enhancement has not gotten much attention. To answer your question this has not been integrated yet mainly due to lack of time and man power. I am the only person working "full time" on the plugin right now so things have to be prioritized. The patch looks promising but it is over 1000 lines of new, modified or deleted code. This is not a bad thing but it also means that it takes some time to review and integrate.

    So I can't make any promises but I will try to look at this for the next major release.

    Seems this isn't making it to MovPic...

    @Deda - could (is?) this be an idea for MP1 Videos?
    @morpheus_xx - perhaps not most crucial function for MP2 atm, but migh be nice to keep in mind for the future?
