Watch 3D to 2D video in VLC

  1. Start VLC (you don’t have to play a video at this time)
  2. Go to “Tools” -> “Preferences” (CTRL+P on Windows)
  3. On the lower left corner choose “Show settings” -> “All”
  4. On the left part of the settings window, scroll down and select “Video”
  5. On the right part of the settings window, scroll down to “Source aspect ratio”
  6. Type in the aspect ratio with the width doubled – for example 32:9 for a 16:9 video, or 8:3 for a 4:3 video…
  7. Click “Save” and exit VLC —Keep in mind that the changed aspect ratio will be saved for all your videos – remove it after watching 3D or your normal videos might seem to be a bit stretched —
  8. Start VLC and play your 3D video, pause somewhere at the start
  9. If you don’t already know, check your video resolution under “Tools” -> “Media Information” (CTRL+I on Windows) -> “Codec”
  10. Go to “Tools” -> “Effects and Filters” (CTRL+E on Windows)
  11. Go to “Video Effects” -> “Crop”
  12. On “Right” type in the half of your horizontal pixels for example: 1920×1080 —> 1920/2 = 960 px or: 1280×720 —> 1280/2 = 640 px
  13. Click on “Close”, hit “Play” and enjoy your movie in 2D ;D

If the video feeds are one on top of the other the same applies except double the height (16:9 > 16:18) and crop the bottom by 1080/2 > 540px or 360px.
