YouTube popularizes 3D HD video

Two years have passed since first Youtube tested their 3d converter. Half a year ago this function became available for everyone, and many people made their movies available in 3D, since the new feature is so easy to use.



Now YouTube brings it to the new level – beginning from April 5th, all videos uploaded in high resolution up to 1080p will be converted to 3D automatically. The 3D mode can be activated in the Quality settings. 

I believe, this feature will be definitely liked a lot by 3D movie fans, because the upcoming 3D movies can now be evaluated by watching their trailers in full HD with the glasses on, just like in the cinema! I also hope that popular YouTube show makers will make some more use of this innovation.

It seems that videos, uploaded before the April, 5, have to be converted  to 3D manually. Here is a short video tutorial on how to do it for those who would wish to watch their own masterpieces in 3D:
