Open Hour Chameleon is a pretty good device, with a stable firmware, properly working Gigabit Ethernet, EXT-4 file system support for external devices, relatively decent video playback capabilities in SPMC (fork of XBMC). If you want to playing Stereoscopic Videos on Chameleon, you may find that not easy. here, this guide will lead you convert Stereoscopic Videos through Chameleon with your existing HD TV which will allow you to watch 3D cable or satellite channels. Just reading more carefully about these five parts which we listed.

Part One: Added some Stereoscopic 3D videos to Our test

I’ve also added some 3D videos to my test. The anaglyph videos play normally, but these are pre-processed video and they are actually just like normal videos. I’ve also tested two stereoscopic videos (Over and Under) at 1080p and 2160p resolutions, and the system can’t really handle them:

* bbb_sunflower_1080p_60fps_stereo_abl.mp4 – Plays at 13 fps (instead of 60 fps)
* bbb_sunflower_2160p_60fps_stereo_abl.mp4 – Audio only

I’ve never tried 3D videos before, so I’ve included a screenshot , but I assume it’s displayed the way it should be. I’d also like to add one or two 3D BD iso file to my test, but I haven’t found any so far.

Most of the AVI, MKV, FLV, VOB/IFO, FLV and MP4 videos in my library could play fine, except a few FLV which make SPMC exit, and the system return to the launcher. Finally I played a 2-hour video (1080p / mkv / h.264) to test stability. So video playback in RK3288 is slowly improving, but some 4K video still have issues, some videos can’t play at their native frame rate, and seeking may introduce artifacts in video. Stereoscopic 3D video can’t be played at an acceptable frame rate in SPMC, but it’s the first yime I test this type of video.
