Viewing 3D Videos on Linux

Cometh the new millenium and cometh a flurry of 3D Videos! To cope up, we need get ourselves geared up to watch them.

Now, I cannot help you with buying 3D Goggles for watching these videos but surely I can help you setup your system for that! Now first things first. There is a huge lack of stereoscopic video players in linux, the ones that play SBS (Side by Side) Videos for example. Now, these videos can be broken down into images and recombined (after combining 2 pictures together) to get the desired 3D video output through any video encoder like mencoder or ffmpeg.
