Backup 3D Blu-ray on Plex server for Panasonic VT65 playback

Can Panasonic VT65 play 3D Blu-ray movies from Plex backups? Plex Blu-ray movie playback issue can be easily solved by downloading 3D Blu-ray to Plex Converter to convert Plex unsupported Blu-ray files to Plex compatible MP4/MOV/ASF/WMV etc. 

“ It is the Avatar 3D, North American version, that I own, which I was testing out this ripping. Also, my TV is the Panasonic VT65. It is played back via DLNA, served by Plex server. Now, does it make sense to give you some screenshots, which would be in dual-image interleaved state - I am not sure you can see the ghosting effects?! Please let me know how you can tell from an interleaved screen shot - I cannot take a 3D picture thru my 3D shutter-glasses, nor would it be any good. 

Anyway, perhaps MVC to SBS is just not good enough, even at the original picture size - it is still being encoded and there maybe some artifacts. Am I wrong?

In any case, I also like to find out if I go through your department for a refund or not? Or, you can point me to another department.“  

As we know, the Plex supported media file formats are limited. It can't handle 3D Blu-ray discs or 3D Blu-ray files. So if we want to enable Panasonic VT65 to play 3D Blu-ray movies, we will need to rip and convert 3D Blu-ray discs or files to Plex supported video formats first.
