Weston-Rift Rift support as a 'postcompositor', it takes the display set up by a backend, swaps the framebuffer target to render into a texture, and renders that texture as a virtual display inside the rift. 3D SBS content support is in in a hacky form, pass --rift-sbs to enable. To rotate the output for the rift (if you aren't rotating the display in some other way), pass --rift-rotate. While Weston is running there are a few hotkeys that affect the rift display (Super is the windows key): `Super+5` to toggle SBS `Super+6` to toggle rotation `Super+7` to move towards the virtual screen `Super+8` to move away `Super+9` to make the virtual screen bigger `Super+0` to make it smaller How to play 3D movies (with weston-rift and mpv): * Run Weston with `weston -R --rift-sbs (--rift-rotate)` (maybe add --fullscreen?) * If in X, move the Weston window to the rift (for tracking, have the rift display on before launching) * Run, from any terminal, `mpv <SBS video file> --video-aspect 9:16 -fs` (video-aspect is only needed if you're using --rift-rotate, I think) [Bonus] Youtube SBS videos on the rift (with quvi): * `quvi dump -s 720p --exec "mpv %u --video-aspect 9:16 -fs" <youtube link>` Weston Weston is the reference implementation of a Wayland compositor, and a useful compositor in its own right. Weston has various backends that lets it run on Linux kernel modesetting and evdev input as well as under X11. Weston ships with a few example clients, from simple clients that demonstrate certain aspects of the protocol to more complete clients and a simplistic toolkit. There is also a quite capable terminal emulator (weston-terminal) and an toy/example desktop shell. Finally, weston also provides integration with the Xorg server and can pull X clients into the Wayland desktop and act as a X window manager. Refer to http://wayland.freedesktop.org/building.html for building weston and its dependencies. The test suite can be invoked via `make check`; see http://wayland.freedesktop.org/testing.html for additional details.
