I just got the Nubia Pad 3D and am loving it so far. One big issue for me is the lack of proper video support. I can play the video in LeiaPlayer but it doesn’t support the sound codec and also doesn’t show the correct aspect ratio. I tried in VLC and it played with sound but did not support the 3d. Is there a timeline on this? Cos this is a pretty big omission.
Just to clarify the video is 3d SBS
We support all the most popular codecs for both video and audio.
Which codec does your video use specifically?
DTS. But it’s also the fact it plays at the wrong aspect ratio
The aspect ratio bug is something we haven’t seen. Would love to test it on our end. Feel free to upload the file to a cloud drive and send me a link over DM and we’ll take a look.
I was unable to reproduce the aspect ratio issue on my end, it works perfectly on our devices.
I’ve sorted the aspect ratio, just the sound issue now.
As an update, I’ve tried two other videos and they played with sound, so maybe a DTS thing?
It must be a DTS issue, the other files are ac3.
Yes, we don’t support every codec, only the most popular ones that are open standards. But I have made a ticket for the LeiaPlayer Team to explore what it would take to support DTS.
Hey, any news on this? DTS is a commonly used audio codec… thanks!!
did you manage to play a movie with the correct aspect ratio? I have the impression that when I rip my 3d bluray the sbs half and full are stretched to fill the screen.
Do you have a specific setting ?
Make sure with the full and half sbs you use this naming convention, and you should be good.
But I also found the MPV 3d player works well with the SBS files and has a way you can select the exact aspect ratio if ever stretched weirdly.
I wish the Leiaplayer and MPV 3d worked with or at least better with subtitles. That is the only difficulty I still run into.
