How to view converted glasses-free 3D on 3D smartphone?

It's very easy for you to transfer converted files to your phone. Just connect your phone to your computer via USB. But different phones have different requirements and steps for you to finally view your converted 3D content, and you'd better be aware of that clearly beforehand. Take Sharp SH-12C Aquos 3D for example.

Before transfer your converted file, you need to add the prefix [[3D]] into the file name for the phone to recognize it as 3D content. After the rename, just save it in the "movie" folder of the phone as USB is connected. Then disconnect the USB.

Your newly transferred glasses-free 3D file is supposed to be stored in the "Contents Manager".


Head into Contents Manager -> Movie, but you can't see what you want there. Why? You need to update the info now. Just press Menu button on your phone, and in the pop-up on the lower part of the screen, go to "APP setting".


Then select "Update Information".


A couple of seconds later, the update will be finished, and you can see your newly transferred glasses-free 3D file.


Note: Please make sure the display is under "3D" mode for enjoying 3D videos.
