3D Trailers?

Question

So, I'm trying to setup my first 3D sequence, but it always skips over the trailer (I'm guessing because no 3D trailers are available?). The only way I've successfully gotten trailers to play in my 3D sequence is if I untick the setting for "Filter for 3D based on feature" (and when I untick that setting, it reverts to just showing 2D trailers instead).

Has anybody found a way to get 3D trailers? Am I missing something?

That's likely true. By default, our source for 3D streaming trailers is actually not enabled. Here's how to enable the scraper for streaming 3D trailers:

  1. Open the CinemaVision Add-on Settings.
  2. Browse to the Trailers menu.
  3. Choose Source: Content filter (scrapers).
  4. Choose the StereoscopyNews.com scraper.
  5. Enable the scraper by ticking the box to the left of the scraper name.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Open your 3D Sequence in the Sequence Editor.
  8. Edit your Trailers Module.
  9. Choose Scrapers filter (scrapers).
  10. Choose the StereoscopyNews.com scraper.
  11. Move it to the top of the list.
  12. Enable the scraper by ticking the box to the left of the scraper name.
  13. Disable all other scrapers.

You can also use local 3D trailers, but they have to be scraped into your Kodi Database currently. We're going to improve on that in this development cycle.

Beautiful! Thank you! It seems to have required one additional step (going into the "Content" menu to first enable StereoscopyNews.com before I could select it under the "Trailers" menu).

Hmm, now that I'm playing around with it, I'm seeing that StereoscopyNews.com unfortunately seems to sporadically shift between trailers of all different 3D formats. Sometimes side-by-side (SBS), sometimes top-bottom. Always impossible to predict.

Have you encountered this and is there a good way to filter for SBS only?

I actually haven't noticed that. I'll see if that's something we can further refine in this round of development. Maybe StereoscopyNews.com feeds the format. I know we can detect the format of the feature in Kodi, so if we can get that data from StereoscopyNews.com we should be able to sync the two.
