Q1:”How can I watch a 3D video in regular 2D with VLC? When I download a 3D movie and play it in VLC, it plays two copies of the video side by side. How to convert it to a normal video, using VLC if possible, and watch in 2D?” 

Q2: “How can I watch a side-by-side 3D video in 2D? I have a 3D movie (.MKV), with side-by-side 3D, and it works just fine at home. Now I want to see it at my friend’s house, and they don’t have a 3D system. Is there any way to crop one of the sides on VLC or convert it to 2D? My friend uses a Mac, but I can use Mac OS X or Windows 8 to play the file.” 

Q3:”Is there a way to convert a 3D MKV file into a 2D MKV? I would like to convert my 3d MKV to 2D. How can I do this please ? I searched on the Internet and I found nothing. The 3D movie I want to convert is a SBS (Side By Side). Han solo1, how to use AVIdemux ? I didn’t find the option 3D to 2D in this software”
