Best Kodi Add-ons for 3D Movies, Working in 2018

If you’re looking for the best Kodi add-ons for 3D movies, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve searched the Kodi scene to find five add-ons with a great variety of 3D content. With the advent of affordable 3D-capable displays of all kind–such as TVs, computer screens, and even video projectors, watching 3D movies at home has become more and more common. There are even 3D BluRay disks and players. Why not, then, get your 3D content straight from Kodi?

4K-3D

In today’s article, we’ll begin by discussing 3D video, how it works and what’s needed to enjoy it. We’ll then jump right into our core subject and introduce the best four add-ons we’ve found for 3D movies. After describing each one, we’ll tell you what 3D content you can find and where to find it. Because all our picks have more to offer than 3D movies, we will also briefly present their other features. And since you might be tempted to give them a try, we also give you detailed installation instructions for each of the four add-ons. Before we conclude, we’ll try to answer everyone’s burning question: “Which one is the best?”

To Better Protect Your Privacy When Streaming Content, Use a VPN

If you want to keep what you’re doing to yourself, avoid the scrutiny of your Internet Service Provider, or simply improve your level of security while online, you need to use a VPN. When an ISP suspects someone might be violating their terms and conditions, they can react by throttling down their speed, sending them copyright infringement notices or even interrupting their service. You want to avoid these annoyances.

A VPN protects your privacy by encrypting all data in and out of your computer in a way that makes it almost impossible to crack using strong algorithms. No one, not even your ISP, will be able to know where you’re going or what you’re doing online. As a bonus, by using appropriately located servers, A VPN allows bypassing most geographic restrictions.

With so many providers to choose from, picking the best one can be a daunting task. Here are a few important factors to consider. A fast connection speed will reduce buffering, a no-logging policy will further protect your privacy, no usage restrictions will let you access any content at full speed and software for multiple platforms will ensure the VPN works on your devices.

The Best VPN For Kodi: IPVanish

3D Video Explained

A screen, any type of screen, is a two-dimensional object. There’s nothing we can do about that. Our sight, on the other hand, is a three-dimensional system. It’s no surprise, then, that people have been looking for ways to render 3D images using 2D devices for a long time. Technology being as advanced as it now is, we now have everything that’s needed to render an acceptable 3D illusion on 2D screens.

How It Works

What makes human vision three-dimensional is the fact that we’re looking at the world with two eyes. And each eye has a different perspective which our brain interprets as the third dimension. In order to simulate 3D, we need to find a way of displaying two different images–one for each eye–and ensure that each eye only sees the image it’s supposed to see. This is usually accomplished using some sort of 3D glasses that allow each eye to see what it should as images for the left and right eye are displayed in very rapid sequence on the screen.

What’s Needed To Watch 3D Content

One essentially needs three things to enjoy 3D content at home. First, you need a 3D capable TV, computer monitor or projector. Today, 3D TVs have become more affordable than ever. And of course, a 3D TV will also display 2D video so you don’t need a dedicated TV just for 3D.

Another thing you’ll need is a pair of 3D glasses. Actually, you’ll need one per viewer, of course. And they can’t be just any 3D glasses. They have to match your TV’s technology. You see (no pun intended), different TV manufacturers use different systems to control what each eye sees.

The last thing you need, and it’s probably the most important is some 3D content. There are not too many sources of these. The most obvious is probably the 3D Bluray disk (which, by the way, requires a 3D Bluray player). You can also get 3D movies in several digital formats and this is what the Kodi add-ons we’re presenting today are offering. There are several 3D digital movie formats but 3D displays will support all of them.

Our Top FourAdd-ons For 3D Movies

We’ve searched the Kodi Scene for the best sources of 3D movies. What we found is that there are no 3D-specific add-ons that only propose 3D content. It makes sense as there isn’t that much content available anyways. A dedicated 3D add-on would likely be a thin one.

We’ve found several all-in-one add-ons that have some great 3D content. We’ve selected the best four based on the quality, the quantity, and the variety of the proposed content. We also made sure that they were all add-ons that are still actively developed. Some have been there for a while, others are newer but all have a good selection of 3D titles.

1. UK Turk Playlists

UK Turk Playlists Information

As the section heading indicates, there are both 4K and 3D movies in there. They’re all neatly organized into two subheadings with the 3D movies first and then the 4K ones. All in all, there are 165 3D titles. There appear to be arranged chronologically, with the most recent near the top. Their oldest 3D title is 1986’s Top Gun.

Which Is The Best Add-On For 3D Movies?

This is a tough question. After examining each of our four suggestions lists of 3D movies, we came to the conclusion that. based solely on 3D content, there is not one best add-on. For a complete selection of 3D movies, you should probably install all four. Each one has some unique titles that are absent from all others.

And if we try to base our evaluation on other content than 3D movies, there’s isn’t a clear winner either. It all depends on what you like. Your best bet is possibly to give them all a try and see which one you prefer.
