We’ve unlocked the capability on 3DVisionLive.com for anyone to upload their own 3D videos—previously you had to have your own channel and/or have your videos screened and approved by NVIDIA to upload them.
We’re excited about this, and we hope you are too, as it will open the site to great deal of new content and, hopefully, community participation—both in terms of uploading videos and sharing and commenting on them.
NOTE: We have added the ability to set left/right eye priority for your videos during the upload process, which means videos created with FRAPs will now work with our video player. See the button circled in the image above for reference.
The upload process is simple:
First, go to the 3D Videos page by clicking here, or on the tab at the top of this page.
Make sure you are logged in, and if you have not registered for an account on the site yet do so now by clicking on the sign in/create account link in the upper right corner of the page and follow the steps.
Next, back on the video page, click on the bright green (what other color would you expect…) button entitled “Upload Your Videos to 3DVision Live. An image of this button is shown to the right for your reference.
This will take you to the upload page, which is shown at the top of this article for reference. Please read the requirements and the Community Guidelines and Rules and upload responsibly. We are trusting you to not abuse the privilege and helping to make visitors' experiences on 3DVisionLive.com positive.
Please fill out all fields before uploading—make sure you give your video a title, and keep it short and sweet; let us know a bit about the video in the description field (how you shot it, some background, anything you think is interesting about any aspect of the video, and what equipment you used to make it). If it fits one of the predefined categories please select one and give your video some keywords so people will be able to find it easily on the site using searches.
Select your video—must be in MP4 format and 1GB or smaller (or no more than 5 minutes in length)—by clicking the browse button and navigating to where it is stored on your PC, and then make sure you enter the “human verification” code at the bottom and click “save”.
You’ll see an upload status bar and will be notified when the upload is finished, and to wait for the video to encode for streaming on the site. We recommend checking back about 10 minutes or so after the encoding process starts.
That’s about all there is to it. Have fun and let us know what you think!
Click the green button to start the upload process!
