How to play MKV files with NVIDIA 3D Vision

So, you have an expensive graphics card that’s 3D vision compatible, along with a beautiful 3D monitor. You watch the very few 3D videos NVIDIA has on their site playable through the NVIDIA 3D vision video player and start to slowly grow bored. You then browse the web and come across some big titles that are available for download in .mkv format. Bingo! After the download finishes, you open your NVIDIA 3D vision video player and browse for the downloaded movie, click okay and realize you’re really upset. “This file format is not supported!”

No worries! I’m here to show you exactly what to do to play ANY unsupported file format without having to use the NVIDIA 3D vision video player. Before I go into any detail, I’m going to attach the links to three different applications that you will need in order to get things working.
Stereoscopic Player
K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 7.2.0 There will be a section towards the end of the install asking you to include audio codecs, make sure you enable all of them. If not the 3D video will work but the audio will not.
Haali Media Splitter
I read a few articles that says all you need is the Haali Media Splitter, but that is not true, you also need the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 7.2.0.
*Note Download and install in the order above.

After installing the three applications above you will need to do three more steps. Open the Stereoscopic player, then under File go to Layout and choose Sensio. After that is selected go to View then Viewing Method and choose NVIDIA 3D Vision. Next go to View and go to Preferred Viewing Method and choose Stereoscopic. Browse for your download 3D .mkv file and then full screen the video. You should now be able to take advantage of the 3D experience! Take a look at the screen shots below.
