Is It Possible To Watch 3d Movies Online?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

With so many 3d movies out in the theaters in the last few years, I asked myself the question if it is possible to watch 3d movies online. Did you know that you can actually use a computer from your home to see images in 3d? Let me tell you some of the options I have discovered.

You Tube. If you go to You Tube and type in "3D" in the search box you will notice that you will have several videos that are ready to be watched in 3D. You even have a pop up menu to choose how specifically you would like to watch it. In this article I´d like to mention three ways (there are more) to watch 3d movies online with You Tube.

Anaglyphic. This is where you use red/blue glasses that you can either purchase or make them at home to be able to appreciate the 3d images. This is probably the best option if you already have the glasses or if you don´t mind making them. If you go to ehow and type in "how to make 3D glasses at home" you should be able to find a good article on this. Its the easiest one to do once you have the equipment. The main drawback is that you can´t do this option if you don´t have the glasses.

Parallel 3D Viewing. Once again, you choose these options from the pop-down menu in You Tube. You will find it below and it will say "3D" Many of you have probably used this method with books or an image on the wall that have the effect by relaxing the gaze, sort of a blank stare and then suddenly the 3D images pop up. Years ago when this first came out, it took me a while to finally be able to do this. When I did, it was pretty fun. The advantage of this option is that you don´t need any equipment. The disadvantage however, is that not everyone is able to do this or it may take them a while before they can figure it out. Try staring at the middle and slowly moving backwards trying not to fix your eyes on anything. See if this works for you.

Cross-Eyed 3D Viewing. I quit trying this method because it was making my eyes hurt. I don´t like crossing my eyes that much. I am glad that this is not the only method to watch 3d movies online. But if it works for you (as it has for many - apparently from the comments) then this is also a good method if you don´t have the glasses.

My vote is that once you have the glasses (whether you made them - which is kind of a fun project - or you bought some) go with the Anaglyphic method (the first one I mentioned). It is probably the best way to watch 3d movies online with You Tube.

By the way, aside from You Tube there is also at least one new computer out that is especially good to watch 3d movies online. It is the Lenovo Y560D laptop. It is the company´s first 3D notebook. It allows you to play the latest games, watch movies, and enjoy photos in 3D.
