bino-1.0 ebuild for gentoo

Recently I wrote about bino, a stereoscopic video player that is usable with linux and also supports quad buffered stereo. In the meanwhile the first stable version 1.0 has been released. Its main features are:

  • Support for 2D and stereoscopic 3D video in a wide variety of input formats and stereo layouts.
  • Support for many 3D output methods, including anaglyph glasses, shutter glasses, autostereoscopic displays, 3D TV sets, and distributed multi-display installations such as powerwalls or Virtual Reality installations.

The Gentoo way

For gentoo users here is my overlay including the ebuild: bino-1.0_overlay.tar.gz (1015) Download the overlay and extract it in /usr/local/portage. Be sure to include the following line in your /etc/make.conf:

PORTDIR_OVERLAY=”/usr/local/portage”

Then emerge bino and enjoy viewing your 3d movies.

stereoscopic mplayer working again part 2

One year ago I provided a patch for mplayer which included support for quad-buffered stereo, enabling mplayer to display stereoscopic movies. In the meanwhile mplayer-1.0_rc4_p20101114 arrived in portage. As before with the original patch from Stuart Levy, my one does not work anymore due to some changes in mplayers gl2 driver. So I had to modify the patch again to work again with newer mplayer versions. You may download the updated patch from here:

mplayer-stereoscopic-1.0_rc4_p20101114.patch (1119)

The patch should work at least with nvidia quadro boards, probably with some others. It can be used with CRT and generic shutter glasses or HMDs like the Vusix VR920. Some stereoscopic sample movies for trying it out can be found on www.3d.wep.dk.

The Gentoo way

For Gentoo users I again modified the mplayer ebuild from portage to include the patch. The modified ebuild is available here:

mplayer-1.0_rc4_p20101114.ebuild (948)

The older ebuild and patch are still available on mygnu.de.

To use the ebuild it just copy it to /usr/local/portage/media-video/mplayer and copy the the patch to the “/usr/local/portage/media-video/mplayer/files” directory. You probably have to create these directories. Then run

ebuild /usr/local/portage/media-video/mplayer/mplayer-1.0_rc4_p20101114-r1.ebuild digest

Be sure to include the following line in your /etc/make.conf.

PORTDIR_OVERLAY=”/usr/local/portage”

Then just re-emerge mplayer.

Now start mplayer with -vo gl2:stereo and enjoy the experience in the 3rd dimension again.

stereoscopic mplayer working again

One year ago I provided a gentoo ebuild for mplayer which included support for quad-buffered stereo, enabling mplayer to display stereoscopic movies like the great movie Avatar3D I watched in cinema today. To learn more about the movie look here and here. Sadly the patch I referenced there does not apply over newer mplayer versions. So I had to modify the original patch from Stuart Levy to work again with newer mplayer versions. You may download the updated patch from here:

mplayer-stereoscopic.patch (1348)

New version available!

The patch should work at least with nvidia quadro boards, probably with some others. It can be used with CRT and generic shutter glasses or HMDs like the Vusix VR920. Some stereoscopic sample movies for trying it out can be found on www.3d.wep.dk.

For Gentoo users I also modified the mplayer ebuild from portage to include the patch. The modified ebuild is available here:

mplayer-1.0_rc4_p20091026-r1.ebuild (926)

New version available!

The older ebuild is still available on mygnu.de.

To use the ebuild it just copy it to /usr/local/portage/media-video/mplayer and copy the the patch to the “/usr/local/portage/media-video/mplayer/files” directory.  You probably have to create these directories. Then run

ebuild /usr/local/portage/media-video/mplayer/mplayer-1.0_rc4_p20091026-r1.ebuild digest

Be sure to include the following line in your /etc/make.conf.

PORTDIR_OVERLAY=”/usr/local/portage”

Then just re-emerge mplayer.

Now start mplayer with -vo gl2:stereo and enjoy the experience in the 3rd dimension again.

stereoscopic mplayer

Experimenting with my VR920 3D stereo glasses I found a patch to enable stereoscopic support in mplayer (thanks to Stuart Levy). With this patch I can now watch 3D movies on my eyewear under linux. Let me tell you, it’s a really cool experience.

The patch should work at least with nvidia quadro boards, probably with some others. It can also be used with CRT and generic shutter glasses. You can download the patch from here:

mplayer-stereoscopic.patch

Some stereoscopic sample movies for trying it out can be found on www.3d.wep.dk.

For Gentoo users I modified the mplayer ebuild to include the patch. Download from here:

mplayer-1.0_rc2_p28058-r1.ebuild (774)

To use it just copy the mplayer subtree from the portage tree to /usr/local/portage/media-video/mplayer and remove the ebuilds. Copy the new ebuild to that directory and the patch to the “files” directory. Then run

ebuild /usr/local/portage/media-video/mplayer/mplayer-1.0_rc2_p28058-r1.ebuild digest

Be sure to include the following line in your /etc/make.conf.

PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage"

Then just re-emerge mplayer.

Now start mplayer with -vo gl2:stereo and enjoy a new experience in the 3rd dimension.

Addon: Updated modified ebuild for the new version in portage tree:

mplayer-1.0_rc2_p28450.ebuild (775)
