There are mulitple ways to identify a video as 3D.
Identify using the web interface
A video can be identified as 3D using the the metadata manager. Simply edit a video:
Then select the 3D format:
Identify using video file name flags
In order to properly detect 3D, two tags need to be present in the filename. First, a '3D' tag has to be present. Second, one of the following must also be present, hsbs, fsbs, sbs, htab, ftab, or mvc.
Tags need be be surrounded be either a space ( ), hyphen -, dot . or underscore _. Tags are case-insensitive, so both 3d and 3D will work.
- moviename (year).3d.hsbs.mkv
- moviename (year) 3d sbs.mkv
- moviename (year).3D-HTAB.mkv
- moviename (year)-3D.sbs-720p.mkv
- moviename (year)-3D.mvc.mkv
Identify using older conventions
Older file naming conventions are still accepted by placing one of the following tags within the filename:
- [3d] - Indicates half side by side
- [sbs3d] - Indicates half side by side
/Movies /300 (2006) 300 (2006) [hsbs].mkv /Home Alone (1990) Home Alone (1990) [fsbs].mkv
3D can even be combined with the multi-version video support discussed in the Movie Naming article.
Here's an example of a movie containing multiple versions in a single movie folder, some 3D and others 2D:
/Movies /300 (2006) /300 (2006) - 1080p.mkv /300 (2006) - 720p.mp4 /300 (2006) - 3d-hsbs.mp4 /300 (2006) - 3d.hsbs.mp4 /300 (2006) - 3d.mvc.mp4
