Mozilla Firefox 4, Nvidia and YouTube Now Support 3D HTML5 Video [blog.mozilla.com]
Today, Mozilla, NVIDIA and YouTube announced support for 3D HTML5 video, available exclusively in Firefox.
Starting with Firefox 4, WebM videos encoded with 3D data will be displayed in high-quality stereoscopic 3D using NVIDIA 3D Vision hardware. 3D hardware has moved from movie theaters and into peopleís homes through TVs, laptop and desktop machines. 3D video games are in wide use today. And consumer hardware thatís capable of capturing 3D photos and videos is starting to come onto the market. In fact, there are several thousand 3D videos available today on YouTube. And starting today YouTube will transcode and play these videos into the open WebM format with 3D for use with their HTML5 player. This feature is currently only available in Firefox 4. Itís our hope that other browsers will follow and add support for 3D HTML5 video as well.

The 3D effect will be especially weird if the picture's not scaled to a reasonable size commensurate with its perspective. E.g. tiny window on a PC screen.

I would have thought they have more important things to worry about. Like this silly new format divide between WebM and H.264.
