When I download a 3D movie and play it in VLC, it plays two copies of the video side by side. How to convert it to a normal video, using VLC if possible, and watch in 2D?
The easiest way I found to do so is using VLC:
- Go to tools --> Effects and filters
- Choose the video effects --> crop tab
- Crop from left or right exactly half of your full mkv resolution (usually 960 pixels)
- Close the effects dialog
- Change the aspect ration to 32:9 and there you go :-)
(If you don't have a 32:9 aspect ration it can be manually added using advanced settings)
why don't you download a 2D copy you will save a lot of effort than downloading it in 3D and then convert it .
You could convert it to 2D (as suggested) but you may lose quality or make it worse, the copy was intended to be 3D, so you'll have to find a copy that's not.
i suggest you use KMplayer. it has an easy to use interface, with mutiple features, including the 2D conversion built-in.
Download it again, and this time don't choose a torrent that's tagged with SBS-3D
refer the videolan forum for your answer here
perhaps this is how the video was converted to 3D.
go to preference in vlc then under Interface Check the Option Embed Video In Interface
