Stereoscopic Player 2.4

Stereoscopic Player is a versatile 3D movie player. It allows you to play stereo scopic videos and DVDs (external decoder required) and also allows you to watch live video from a capture device. Since it is based on Direct Show, it can handle almost any media format, for example AVI, MPEG, WMV, ASF and MOV. Videos can be coded in several different stereo scopic formats.
