I've been using "3DF33D.TV" to upload and share 3D still and videos. 

The site uses WebGL / HTML5 and I was defeated (on my phone) by an apparent lack of WebGL support in Android.

It turns out Firefox for Android supports WebGL, but you have to turn it on. It's off by default.

To turn it on, enter "about:config" in the address field in Firefox on your phone. 
Then filter for "webgl" and set "webgl.force-enabled" to "true". 

From that moment forward, webgl content will work on your Android phone in Firefox. 

You'll need a fast phone....but it's better than black squares that don't let you see anything at all.

I'm on a high fibre diet.

I was able to see WebGL videos on 3DF33D.TV on Android via Firefox by (via about:config) setting 

"webgl.force-enabled" to "true"

but to be able to see the 3D still images I also had to set

"webgl.force_osmesa"  to "true". 

As soon as that was turned on, the still images also began to work without any issues.
