On-the-fly 2D to 3D Video Conversion

Post by vruser »


I am interested in Virtual Reality and 3D video. I have been converting 2D video to 3D for sometime, using an offline process, for then viewing in 3D in my VR headset. This is a great way to watch all kinds of content more immersively.

A few weeks ago I had the idea that it would be nice to be able to browse through my video library, select a video and have it converted to 3D on-the-fly.

I had a look around at a few Digital Media Servers and discovered Universal Media Server. It proved to be an excellent fit for this task. I am a very experienced IT professional.

I have, in fact, already implemented this feature within a modded version of Universal Media Server. It works extremely well. It is fundamentally an enhancement to the Avisynth/FFMpeg transcoder.

I am writing to establish whether this is a feature that you would like to add to the main product. There is a growing community of VR users who would be very interested in this.

I plan to post in the VR communities about it, but I am not sure of the best way to take it forward. If it is not made part of the main product then I am not sure of the options. I have prepared a video demonstration of the feature in action, which I will share once I hear your thoughts.

That sounds like an interesting feature.
I suggest you should go to GitHub to make any contributions, that is where the devs spend most of their time. All help is welcome.
