    My Sony BluRay Google TV device works fine, with one exception so far. YouTube recently added 3D options to 3D videos (you can choose side-by-side, interleaved, anaglyph red/blue, etc.), but my device does not show the options, only the side-by-side videos.
    Anybody know how to get the YouTube 3D options to show up?

    The GTV Chrome browser doesn't currently support the 3D videos on YouTube.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Well, since Google owns YouTube, when will Google TV support YouTube 3D video options?

    I don't know when GTV will support the 3D on YouTube - however I will mention that Vimeo has a lot of 3D videos that work well with GTV. From what I saw it's mostly the kind that use the red/cyan 3D glasses. They even offer a free pair with a S.A.S.E.

    Here are the links for 3D on Vimeo:

    and also:

    the Vimeo stereoscopic 3D testbed is here:

    Also, WEALTH 3D TV app on the marketplace has streaming side by side 3D content.

    Thanks for the links. (I notice Vimeo has lots of naked people in their 3D channels!)

    I can post my red/cyan 3D videos on these sites, or side-by-side with Wealth 3D TV. However, the reason I want to use YouTube is they let you upload a side-by-side 3D video, then the viewers can switch between side-by-side, several variations on red-blue, and interlaced, all on the fly. I don't know how they do it, but it's great.
