Here is good news for the users of YouTube and 3D fans. You can now watch 3D videos directly from YouTube. You might think now that, how it is possible. You need to have a Nvidia 3D Vision PC or Laptop for watching 3D videos through YouTube.
YouTube is World’s No.1 Video sharing website and it turned six years old this week. As a Birthday surprise, now users can view thousands of 3D videos on YouTube in stereoscopic 3D using Nvidia 3D Vision PCs and laptops.
Nvidia also announced it today, as everyone is not able to view 3D Videos via YouTube. You can view streaming stereoscopic 3D visions with Nvidia 3D Vision-enabled PCs with Mozilla’s Firefox 4 and above browser only. Ongoing web standards war is the reason for this.
Here is the glance of Press Release by Nvidia:
“We’re excited to introduce HTML5 and WebM support to the thousands of 3D videos available on YouTube,” said Jonathan Huang, 3D Product Manager at YouTube. “By embracing these open standards; Nvidia 3D Vision users now have a great way of experiencing YouTube’s library of 3D content.”

Technical Details to view YouTube 3D Videos:
As I said, to view videos in the new format, you should have a Nvidia 3D Vision kit, a compatible PC or notebook with the latest Nvidia GeForce graphics drivers (version 275 or above), and Firefox 4 web browser or above. Once you have all these necessary things, you just need to select the HTML5 viewing option in Firefox web browser, when viewing a 3D video in YouTube.
Additionally, using NVIDIA 3DTV Play software, you can connect your PC or Laptop to any 3D HDTVs to enjoy 3D YouTube videos on the “big screen” in the comfort of your living room. NVIDIA 3D Vision technology, which includes 3D Vision software and advanced active shutter glasses, delivers breathtaking stereoscopic 3D images for gamers, movie-lovers and photo enthusiasts when configured with NVIDIA GPUs and a 3D display or projector.
However, if you want to enjoy the 3D Videos now, check this out. You can’t view it correctly without the requirements. And movie theater 3D glasses are not compatible with YouTube’s 3D glasses modes.
