The whole shebang is powered by HTML 5, and according to Jonathan Huang 3D Product Manager at YouTube “we’re excited to introduce HTML5 and WebM support to the thousands of 3D videos available on YouTube. By embracing these open standards, NVIDIA 3D Vision users now have a great way of experiencing YouTube’s library of 3D content.” VP of Products at Mozilla Jay Sullivan agrees, saying “Firefox with 3D Vision creates a stunning and smooth 3D video experience using HTML5 video based on open standards. 3D Vision from NVIDIA is a great example of the rich, innovative experiences that are being built on top of the speed and graphics power that Firefox delivers to the Web.”
