    Hello, since the last graphic stack release I'm trying to play mkv movies containing MVC video, ripped from my small Blu Ray collection, hoping to get 3D from my TV screen and my Debian/Sid laptop without any success.

    This is vainfo output:

    libva info: VA-API version 0.36.0
    libva info: va_getDriverName() returns 0
    libva info: Trying to open /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/
    libva info: Found init function __vaDriverInit_0_36
    libva info: va_openDriver() returns 0
    vainfo: VA-API version: 0.36 (libva 1.4.0)

    I have tried vlc, mpv and xine setting vaapi as decoder, but all I can see is the usual 2D movie.

    It's told that with vdpau, nvidia cards are able to do this. Shouldn't vaapi on Intel Sandy Bridge do the same? Am I missing something?



    P.S.: On Windows 7 with the same hardware and PowerDVD, I get 3D output.
