VLC, since version 2.1.0, is capable of playing 3D side-by-side (SBS) videos using anaglyph technology, viewable with typical paper red-cyan 3D glasses.

To enable this filter, go to Tools → Effects and Filters → Video Filters → Advanced and check off Anaglyph 3D.

The colour scheme of the glasses can be changed by going to Tools → Preferences (All) → Video → Filters → Anaglyph and changing the combo box labelled Color scheme on the right. Save and restart VLC for settings to take effect.
