    Wanted to post an image, but new users are not allowed.
    The pic is a screen cap of an mkv file that is running in ZOOM player, it shows two frames stacked vertically. The file will do the double frame in all players, I tried it with VLC player also. Has anyone seen a video file play with two frames stacked vertically like this before? Is there a way to get it to play normally on one screen? Changing aspect ratio does not work. I have a slow computer would like to avoid recoding the movie again.

    I've seen them stacked, but only to create an effect.
    Assuming the video wasn't encoded that way deliberately, it would be easier if you could upload a sample to the likes of MediaFire.

    The pic is on Photobucket, but I am not allowed to post a link to it as a new member. www.i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u494/eric5484/Title.jpg

    Well, that time it worked.

    As you can tell, I'm new to all of this. Yes it is, but I wanted to burn it to disk and watch it on my laptop. Any way to remux this and get only one frame at a time on the screen?

    Sorry, I haven't any of this type of video, so can't say how to process.
    Try the Videohelp site until someone with more knowledge at Afterdawn responds.

    Potentially stupid suggestion coming up due to my limited knowledge of 3D in this sort of format..

    Could you just crop it or are both frames required for properly viewing 2D?

    Not stupid at all - looking on the web, I found a program that does just that. Haven't tried it yet, but will play with it in a bit

    I found a piece of 3d video that I opened in GraphEdit and managed to save one video stream and the audio - but if you've found a program that will do it, that would be simpler.

    Cool, thanks for the screen grabs. I'll also look into that. Haven't had a chance to play with the program I mentioned above- MeGui

    I forgot to mention that I have a feeling cropping will require re-compressing the video which may take a while with a HD source.

    If you can be faffed with loading mkv as a source (loads of info available out there), then both VirtualDub and AviSynth will crop your file and save a re-compressed output that you can then convert/burn to DVD.
