Win HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players
#97
*EDIT*
This no longer works with my newer 4k panel but it may still work for you?

afedchin build with Nvidia:

Builds found here msdk_mvc_wip.exe http://mirrors.kodi.tv/test-builds/win32/

Disregard Task Manager Setup.
Change Nvidia Resolutions as described in 1st post but leave Stereoscopic ENABLED.

Player settings:
Adjust display refresh rate on start/stop
Decode the stereo stream from 3D enabled
Playback mode preferred
Disable 3D when finished enabled

System settings:
Display:
Resolution 1920x1080
Refresh Rate 60
Use fullscreen enabled
Stereoscopic 3D current is disabled
Preferred same as movie

Download Intel_Media_SDK_2016.msi from Intel website. You will need to register with them to gain access to the download. Once installed, check you have Intel Media SDK 2016 is 1.7 (Intel_Media_SDK_2016.0.1) info in programs folder.

Run the stereoscopic setup in Nvidia control panel and ENABLE stereoscopic. The main quirk, when 24Hz matched refresh rate is switched, Nvidia enables 3D for 2D titles, has been addressed. When Kodi starts, 3D is disabled globally (system wide) allowing 2D 24Hz titles to render correctly. When a 3D title is selected, Kodi will enable 3D globally and turn it back off when finished. When exiting Kodi, 3D will again be enabled globally. The GUI runs at 60Hz as it should, and titles run at perfect frame rate such as 23.976. Do not change any refresh rates in Windows or Nvidia control panel except as outlined after running sterescopic setup in Nvidia control panel.

Add this to your advancedsettings.xml or create if you don't have one:

<advancedsettings>
<video>
<forcemodechangebeforestereo>true</forcemodechangebeforestereo>
<usedisplaycontrolhwstereo>true</usedisplaycontrolhwstereo>
</video>
</advancedsettings>

The Kodi GUI context menu (keyboard press C) 'Playback Using' will now contain 2D, 3D (both external player) and Video Player (Kodi internal player) you can select for choices of playback.

Since afedchin build DISABLES global stereoscopic when Kodi is opened, you will need to manually ENABLE it for 3D external playback.
Here's how to do it:

Create 3D ENABLE.bat. I placed mine in the Documents folder.

@echo OFF

"C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\3D Vision\nvstlink.exe" /enable

EXIT

Create 3D DISABLE.bat also in the Documents folder.

@echo OFF

"C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\3D Vision\nvstlink.exe" /disable

EXIT



Install plugin.program.advanced.launcher-master https://github.com/angelscry/plugin.prog...d.launcher
There is nothing to configure. Open the app. Select default. Select context menu (Keyboard C). Select Create New Launcher. Navigate to 3D ENABLE.bat you just created. Do the same for 3D DISABLE.bat. These now appear as links in Advanced Launcher. Select context menu again and add each link to Favorites. I created a 3D MOVIES folder in my main menu. I then created a favorites link in 3D MOVIES submenu. When I want to use an external player to render a 3D title, I navigate to this submenu and select 3D ENABLE before I start the external player and select 3D DISABLE when finished.
