Please help me here. i have just purchased the Qosmio X770-107 Laptop, and I have set up the 3D as per the Nvidia settings. Now I am trying to get the 3D movies to play. On the laptop it has a few sample clips (movie trailers), which I am trying to watch to get the 3D to work. The Nvidia comes with a sample slide show, and the 3D graphics work perfectly with the supplied glasses.
Under the User Manual, Toshiba states that one must use the pre-installed "Toshiba Video Player", which supports the 3D playback. I have opened that and and changes the settings under 3D to the L side and R side playback, to convert to 3D. It cannot be the glasses or display drivers as I mentioned above, the Nvidia supplied slide show works perfectly.
But the problem then comes in as the sample clips do not open in that player. The clips only open up in Windows Media, but then it has a LH screen and a RH screen. (I hope this makes sense).
Is there anyway of opening these files in the Toshiba Player to enable the 3D playback? I do not want to go out and waste money buying 3D games and movies if I cannot use it on my Laptop.
I have googled for help etc but to no avail.
Please, if anyone can give me suggestions or tips, I'd greatly appreciate it.
The Toshiba Video Player can be used to play 3D content and to convert 2D into 3D.
As far as I know it set by default to 2D so you have to press 2Dto3D conversion in order to get 3D. DVD videos and DVD-VR and files like mp4 are supported and depending on the video content it might be not possible to play this in 3D.
Note: also the WinDVD BD for toshiba is preinstalled. This is different software and it can be used only for Blu-ray playback! If you want to play other content (DVD), you have to use Toshiba video player.
By the way: there is an update for Toshiba Video Player on toshiba European driver page: video player v 4.00.7.01-A… check if you can run this update.
I have installed PowerDVD 12 since asking my question, and that program seems to be working very nice. It plays back in 3D mode very easy, and it is easy to use.
The PowerDVD is however a trial version only which I installed to see if it works, but I don't see the point of paying for another program when the Laptop itself should come with the necessary programs that work since it does support 3D.
I did try that update you suggested as well as look at that link that you did send me. I did the necessary settings, but it still does not work. Can be very frustrating. Maybe any other suggestions?
Sorry mate but I’m confused now…
Did you test the Toshiba Video Player software playing several different files and DVDs?
As mentioned above, depending on the video content it might be not possible to play all files in 3D.
But Toshiba Video Player tool works for sure… I can use it on my notebook very well.
OK, I haven't tried all formats, but the "sample" clips that came with the laptop don't work with the Toshiba player. I am trying to get hold of other formats to try. What confuses me is why do they give you sample clips then that won't play on their own player.
Download the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 32bit and install it,
Then the 64 bit one and install it.
Then the videos should play fine either in the Tosh player or in the Nvidia Player (which you may have to download as well.)
My X770 plays every 3D movie file ive sent at it.
Just waiting on VLC being compiled with 3D and then one player to rule them all.
Also remember for 3D the 3D vision needs to be turned on and you also have to run full screen.
Thanks for the information. I have installed the codec packs as you have stated, but still no luck. Is there anywhere where I can take this Laptop to (Toshiba agent) to sort this out before I end up throwing it out the window.
Thanks again to you guys who have tried to help me.
This seems to be working, only problem now is that is does not want to play in full screen ha ha. When I switch to full screen mode it automatically jumps back to LH/RH (or rather up/down 2 screen) view. I am sure I shall get this right with the settings etc.
