YouTube 3D vids viewable via Firefox, NVIDIA 3D Vision hardware The movie industry has embraced stereoscopic 3D, making it an increasingly common part of the theater experience. As Sony said during its CES press event earlier this year, the next step is to move 3D out of the theater and make it more "personal" for consumers by bringing it to living rooms, camcorders, and personal computing products.

The quest to make 3D ubiquitous took another step forward today. NVIDIA, Mozilla, and Google have teamed up to make stereoscopic 3D videos on YouTube work with computers that have NVIDIA 3D Vision hardware. The feature is supported through a new HTML5-based 3D playback mode that works in Firefox 4.

"Firefox with 3D Vision creates a stunning and smooth 3D video experience using HTML5 video based on open standards," Mozilla products VP Jay Sullivan said in a statement. "3D Vision from NVIDIA is a great example of the rich, innovative experiences that are being built on top of the speed and graphics power that Firefox delivers to the Web."

YouTube has had experimental stereoscopic 3D support since 2009, with support for a number of different output options including side-by-side playback and legacy anaglyph viewing. The arrival this year of consumer-oriented 3D video cameras could significantly increase the amount of 3D video content on the video site.

Using standard-based Web video technologies to support NVIDIA 3D Vision will allow YouTube to make that 3D content accessible to the small but growing audience of users with 3D-enabled computers.
