Convert 3D Blu-ray for Roku, Google Cardboard, or Oculus Rift

One of the benefits to Google Cardboard, Oculus Rift, and similar phone-based headsets is stereoscopic 3D. As a big supporter of stereoscopic 3D, I’ve already been playing with converting my 3D Blu-rays – yes, Hollywood, I own them – to side-by-side 3D files that I can play from my Plex server through my Roku onto my 3D TV.

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #141

Yes! I skipped another one! I admit it! Things happen. I’ve been a busy little boy lately, okay? Anyway, I’m in a really good mood during this show, but there are people out there who really need to shut the hell up. They’re making the rest of humanity look bad. You’ll understand more when you […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #135

The Widescreen.Org Movie and Media Podcast #123

I’m back for another episode! I’ve finally gone 3D (or at least my TV has), I review the Google Chromecast, most manufacturers drop prices of HDTVs, Sony starts its 4K download service, Monster has yet another excuse to try to blatantly rip you off, Ant-Man pushed up to a crowded Summer 2015 release, Pirates 5 is […]

Stop Being Duped By The Anti-3D Scam

The hatred for and vilification of 3D by the anti-3D crowd never ceases to amaze me. Tech Republic’s Editor-in-Chief Jason Hiner recently published an anti-3D article, which would more accurately be called a “rant”, called Stop Being Duped By The 3D Scam that I feel needs to be addressed. The main points of his rant […]
