How to Upload 3D Video to Youtube that Supports HTML5?
So yesterday I uploaded my first 3D video thinking it would be as simple as uploading any other video to Youtube. Not so... I've been looking online all day and have yet to come up with a solution to my problem(s).

What I'm trying to do is take 3D video from the Nintendo 3DS, upload it to Youtube (in 3D), and have it work with Nvidia 3D Vision (HTML5). The most common problem I've been having is that my uploaded videos give me the "HTML5 3D Unavailable" error: "This video is not available for viewing with HTML5. You may try another 3D viewing mode." The other, much less common error I've run into is that HTML5 seems to work with the video, but the video isn't displayed correctly; it's displayed as a side-by-side video.

I've tried uploading over a dozen videos with different formats, settings, encodings, resolutions, 3D settings, etc., including uploading it straight from the SD card the 3DS saved it to, but none of them have worked properly. I've tried rendering the video as described here:

(though I'm not sure my editing software does the SEI Frame Packing Arrangement metadata...), among other settings, but again, nothing has worked.

To clarify, I can watch other Youtube videos with Nvidia 3D Vision and HTML5, just not the ones I've uploaded. Also, my ORIGINAL videos (straight from the 3DS' SD card) appear in 3D in the NVIDIA 3D Vision Video Player (this player can't seem to play the other formats I've rendered). Also, the original videos are .AVI format with JPEG codecs, in case that tells anyone anything...

Here's the playlist that contains all of the test videos I've uploaded:

So far, only four of my videos allow HTML5 (aka they don't say HTML5 is unavailable):

I have no idea why they allow HTML5 and others don't, particularly because I rendered some of those other videos exactly the same way, yet they don't work.

So basically, I'm just looking for pointers on how to get these 3D videos to upload to Youtube and work with HTML5/3D Vision. Render settings, file formats, resolutions... really anything/everything that one needs to do to get this to work.


Thanks in advance! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
