You’ll need to page through the multi-page list to find the 3D Blu-Ray options but there are many. This is nice to see as 3D titles became harder to find for sale as the 3D TV market collapsed.

Also, 3D movie “pay for view” is available from 3dcrave.com whose 3D channel is available on Roku and the Amazon Fire.
Stereoscopic VR 180 is a very interesting creation. Would love to play with one of these new VR 180 cameras.

This web site has been upgrade to use https secure access versus the older and non encrypted http.
There is nothing here that is controversial or secret that needs protection. However, Google announced some time ago that it would downgrade search results for content that is not accessible via https.
In effect, Google is forcing even hobby web sites to obtain digital certificates, which are marketed more for business use than personal use and can cost a substantial sum, for each web site you run. Today, there are less costly options available such as from https://www.sslforfree.com where obtained a valid certificate – with the caveat that the free certificate needs to be renewed every 3 months.
All access to the http://3d.coldstreams.com address will automatically translate to https://3d.coldstreams.com.
Visitors to the web site should not see any changes except that Firefox may issue a minor warning that some linked content on the page is to non-secure web sites.
Many biased reporters called 3D glasses “3D goggles” to insult the technology as best they could. They then simultaneously rave over VR helmets, which makes no sense.
My 3D glasses are nearly identical to my reading glasses, but no one says I’m wearing “reading goggles”! And we don’t wear “dark goggles” when we drive on a bright and sunny day!
Needless to say, another reporter has now invented the rude term “google-free 3D” to continue his insults. He is an idiot. Sorry.

More importantly, the block chain technology provides a way to protect intellectual property rights of photographers.
This is a really big deal. In a couple of days, Kodak’s stock has tripled in value and the company transitions from a “has been” to a future oriented business.
I will do a post at some point on re-formatting conventional 3D video for use in VR Cardboard viewers.
Conventional 3D video typically used side-by-side or top over bottom encoding of 3D content. Top over bottom does not work at all for conventional VR viewing apps, and side-by-side displays a horizontally squished/vertically stretched image perspective. Consequently, neither works with standard VR viewers. Side by side is also sometimes called “half side by side”.
Some apps do correctly recreate a side by side image but do so only in a small portion of the phone’s screen centered in front of the cardboard viewer’s lenses. Unfortunately, this small image cuts the image resolution so low that the image quality suffers tremendously and the original 3D content is nearly useless.
IF Cardboard viewing apps provided reformatting of standard 3D formats into VR 3D formats properly, this would not be a problem. But for now, it is a big problem.
A possible solution, based on my tests, is to take one’s original stereoscopic 3D and recompress an output file as full size, side by side. Upload the full size, side by side video to Youtube.
When played back on the Youtube viewer, these videos display using most of the phone screen, such that image resolution remains very good. Each eye sees an original image in a 960×540 resolution (roughly) which is far better than perhaps half of that seen on conventional side by side Cardboard viewing apps.
More on this another time.
