Convert your 2D videos into 3D on YouTube, now YouTube has announced today that their 3D video conversion tools are now live, after months of testing.
You can now convert your standard 2D videos into 3D, although you will still need a 3D glasses-free display (or a display + glasses) if you want to truly enjoy the new videos.

Furthermore, the company says they have removed the 15 minute video limit as long as you are a verified user.

The company is quick to note that the video will not be as good of quality as video caught properly with 3D capable cameras. The software simply "measures the motion and color of a single video to simulate depth and hobble together a hacky, 3D-ish video," says TC.

Finally, YouTube rounded out their announcements confirming a video editing partnership with Magistro and an effects partnership with Vlix.
