YouTube Adds Support for 3D Videos

YouTube recently added 3D options for their videos, seizing on the growing trend to bring 3D content into our everyday lives. Whether in our online interfaces or in new cameras, three dimensional content is becoming more accessible. YouTube’s library of 3D videos is understandably sparse, but they have embedded options to suit your preferred viewing style.

The move brings 3D technology possibilities into a new arena and hopefully YouTube videos will surface that are actually enhanced by the third dimension such as this flower experiment, rather than otherwise flat videos like this example from Engadget. We don’t suggest viewing videos if you don’t have the appropriate glasses, but feel free to imagine the possibilities as explained by YouTube staff:
