Win HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players
Some interesting updates.....

On a hunch I finally tried PowerDVD and played some 3D SBS mkv, initially I noticed that picture was showing up very weird and then playing up with setting I noticed that 3D mode was set up "anaglyph 3D" so I changed it to HDMI 1.4. Then played the same file again but the picture was showing double. So I played around with the switched 3D mode setting on my projector and when I changed it to "Auto" the picture started showing correctly. Played another file, and it played as left/right images (no 3D). So I thought that I'm back to same place I started. Then while playing around with PowerDVD setting (keeping PJ at "Auto") switching the 3D mode to "Side-by-Side" and movie played correctly.  

After the initial success, I pushed my luck a bit and changed the desktop resolution to 4k/60 and then played 3D movie in PowerDVD expecting completely that it will not work but to my surprise, it not only worked but it also changed my PJ to 1080p/3D mode. 

So my conclusion is that having frame-packed or SBS is not the issue, the issue is how the software passes the information to the display device. With PowerDVD it seems like I am finally close to achieving the goal of keeping the desktop resolution at 4K/60 and having PJ auto switch to 3D mode when SBS-mkv is played. Once the playback stops, it goes back to 4K/60. 

I will do more testing before I can call it a success but so far things are looking good Smile. Once everything play as expected then next step will be to integrate it in Kodi.
