Kodi not shows up 3D Blu-ray ISO

"Hey everyone. I'm having issues with kodi and 3d iso's (full disc rips). Basically if I have both a 2d & 3d iso's and am browsing with kodi, the iso's don't show up as 2d or 3d. The file type (eg HD, SD) is empty. Is there any way to get 3d iso's to be marked as 3d when browsing my files?"

Kodi supported file formats

Before adding your media source into Kodi library, one thing you should be clear is that whether Kodi has the input support for your 2D/3D Blu-ray ISO files, from Kodi's official web page, we find that Kodi has native support for many common video, audio and music file formats listed as below:

Video formats: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, H.263, MPEG-4 SP and ASP, MPEG-4 AVC (H.264), H.265 (as from Kodi 14) HuffYUV, MJPEG, RealVideo, RMVB, WMV
Audio formats: MIDI, AIFF, WAV/WAVE, AIFF, MP2, MP3, AAC, DTS, ALAC, AMR, FLAC, RealAudio, WMA
3D video formats: Passive 3D video formats such as SBS, TAB, anaglyph or interlaced
