[FFmpeg-user] does ffmpeg support MVC (3D BluRays)?

Hey there.

I couldn't find a definitive answer on this.
Some Wikipedia articles and stackoverflow questions claim ffmpeg would
not support playback of MVC (and thus 3D BluRays).

I don't have a 3D projector or anything the likes yet, but still
wanted to check whether some Videos would actually contain 3D

So basically I though via ffmpeg's stereo3d filter
(https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Stereoscopic) I might be able to get the
3D BluRay into a side-by-side picture, which should then be similar
but of course a bit different.

However, when doing so the results are not really as I'd expect them:
Each side is only roughly half of the full picture. And the same
happens also when I do it on a BluRay that for sure has no 3D.

I further saw that there are probably some OpenSource MVC decoders:

https://github.com/Britz/FFmpeg (was a master thesis with H.264 MVC
support for ffmpeg)

So should that work already, or could I open a feature request somewhere? :-)
