For folks who have 3D capable computers using NVIDIA 3D Vision hardware, but have run out of 3D content to watch or games to play can rejoice – investing in that 3D setup wasn’t a waste after all. NVIDIA has just announced today that users will be able to enjoy YouTube’s 3D channel in stereoscopic 3D with their NVIDIA 3D Vision PCs and notebooks.
“We’re excited to introduce HTML5 and WebM support to the thousands of 3D videos available on YouTube,” said Jonathan Huang, 3D Product Manager at YouTube. “By embracing these open standards, NVIDIA 3D Vision users now have a great way of experiencing YouTube’s library of 3D content.”
Users will have to use Mozilla Firefox (version 4 or above) and have their NVIDIA 3D GeForce drivers updated (version 275 or above) in order to experience 3D YouTube videos though. For more information about how to view YouTube 3D, head over to the 3Dvisionlive website.
It’s funny how Google Chrome wasn’t mentioned in the announcement considering how YouTube is Google’s property after all. Perhaps in the next Chrome update?
