Check your 3D-TV compatible format first before playing 3D videos. Most 3D-TV supports MP4 and WMV video format.

Here are three ways to play and watch 3D video on 3D-TV, depending on the source to deliver 3D video to TV.
Use 3D- TV as external monitor for PC
3D-TV can be used as external monitor for your PC. To make it, you’ll need a video cable to attach PC to 3D-TV, generally via HDMI/DVI/VGA provided with your TV. The cable needed varies depending on the ports your PC and 3D-TV support. You'll need an adapter if your port on PC is not the same as the port on 3D-TV. Once you have the necessary cable/adapter to reach from your PC to the 3D-TV:
* Turn off both the 3DTV and the PC. Connect the cable to the TV before turning on the computer to ensure it recognize TV as external display.
* After that, your 3D-TV will become external monitor. The playback will be the same as above instructions on how to watch 3D video on PC.
Stream 3D video to 3D-TV via hard drive on Windows/Mac
Simply load 3D videos to your hard drive or flash drive via USB and then hook up to your 3D-TV, for some 3D-TV’s USB port supports 3D content decoding.
Use DVD player to stream 3D video to TV
If you can't stream 3D video to 3D TV via hard drive, you can just connect your portable hard drive to hardware media player, like DVD Player and Blu-ray Player, and let it stream 3D content to your 3D-TV.
