Interesting, any player should be able to play a side by side file. It
needs no special processing, the TV combines the picture to create the
3D. All the player does is play the file as usual. It's just that each
frame has two pictures in it.

So how do mplayer, xine, XBMC etc cope with that file?

Do you have a sample?
