Constatus - 3D

Constatus can also stream 3D content (stereoscopic video).

In this example I used:

configuration for constatus

See this example configuration-file.

When the König camera is plugged in, you'll see 2 /dev/video devices. One for the left camera, one for the right camera. You may need to change the "device=" parameters in the example.

In the example the two König cameras are configured and a view. The view is where the two cameras are combined in one stream. When you open the stream in the webbrowser, you will see 1 image with the 2 cameras combined:

Constatus will listen on port 8070, so in your browser go to http://localhost:8070/

In your (chrome-)browser, click on the 3 dots and select "Cast...". There select your own chromecast.

Don't forget to select "full screen" in Constatus.

Then press the '3D' button on the TV-remote and select "side-by-side" in the configuration-menu.

When you leave the menu, the TV will start producing a 3D image. You will need to put on the special glasses (don't forget to switch them on).

Note that the effect is not very strong with this camera.

You can also get the 3D effect with those "red/green glasses":

For this, replace packing = "side-by-side"; by packing = "red-green"; in 3D.cfg.

alternative for the König camera

If you have 2 equal cameras, then that's also an option. Set them up 9cm from each other pointing in the same direction:

In this test I used two "Philips PCVC740K ToUcam Pro" cameras. I configured Constatus for red/blue output.
