I hate to be a stick in the mud, but, what’s wrong with stereo OpenGL on a PC monitor?
Even with free cardboard glasses the picture is better than a VB, and WAAAAY cheaper 😛
I’ll tell you why I still like this project, though: If he gets his decompression routine to full speed and gets anywhere near the needed compression ratio, we could see VB games with FMV cutscenes pretty soon!
I thought of something weird:
What if someone made/converted a VB emu to render w/ OpenGL, then ran it through this (when it’s at full speed, of course) on a real VB? 😀 That would have to be a first, even excluding the stereo part.
The only thing that might come close would be watching streaming video from an (Xbox, XB360, PS3) emulator in the browser/media player of said console. And that’s quite a few years off (except maybe old XBox…)
