Ok I've done a bit more research…
With certain video files -- not necessarily related to whether the file-name parameters are present -- the main dashboard (when you pause a video) has two buttons in the lower left corner.
The first button offers these choices: Fisheye, Flat, Lat/Long (?), and Lens Profile (?).
The second button offers these choices: Mono, SideBySide, and TopBottom.
@Cajuntrickyfish Yes, this is the area I'm talking about. I'm loading the files into DeoVR from a local folder on my computer.
One of my video files has the file-name parameters "_180_3dh". When I load that file into DeoVR, those two buttons are missing, but the left and right images are wildly misaligned.
When I rename that file to remove the parameters, the buttons appear. I must set the second button to SideBySide, but, regardless of how I set the first button, the left and right images are still wildly misaligned.
Meanwhile, in MermaidVR, I can simply choose the settings "180" and "SBS" for that file, and everything looks fine
