Watch 3D Blu-ray movies on Samsung Gear VR Unit

This article is a guide to show you how to convert 3D Blu-ray movie to MKV to watch in Samsung Gear VR Unit.

"I have a few 3D Blu-rays that I would love to watch in Oculus Cinema. My understanding is that most 3D Blu-rays are in the "frame packed" format but Samsung Gear VR requires either side-by-side or top-to-bottom (top down). Is there any way to convert a frame packed Blu-ray to a SBS or TD?"

Steps: Rip 3D Blu-rays to MKV for Samsung Gear VR Unit Playback

Step 1. Import 3D Blu-ray movie

Launch the professional 3D Blu-ray to Gear VR converter. Click the button on top left corner to add 3D Blu-ray movie to it. Double click the video, you can preview the movie in the right side.

Step 2. Select an output format for Gear VR

Click "Format" bar and find "3D Video", there are a lot of format options for you. "MKV Side-by-Side 3D Video (*.mkv)" is recommended.

Step 3. Start to convert 3D Blu-ray to Gear VR

Click "Convert" button, 3D Blu-ray to Samsung Gear VR converter will start to work. Just be patient, it will not take you long time. After the conversion, place your video files into the folder named "My Videos" on your MicroSD card.

To watch your 3D videos, however, there is an additional step, and itís not entirely straightforward.

The following will allow for perfect 3D playback of videos set up in a SBS format. SBS format means the left and right video channels are contained within the same file and appears as a near-mirror image when played back using a standard media player. To view your SBS 3D video files on your Gear VR, follow these steps:

1. On your MicroSD card file directory, navigate to Oculus > Movies > Your Movies
2. Create a new folder within "Your Movies" and label it "3D"
3. Import or move your SB 3D videos into your newly created "3D" folder

Once you have created your 3D content folder and imported compatible video files, insert your MicroSD card into your Galaxy Note 4 (if it isnít already), slide the phone in your Gear VR, and put the virtual reality headset on your head. Then:

1. Navigate to Oculus Cinema from the main menu
2. Navigate to "My Videos" from the Oculus Cinema content library menu
3. Select the 3D video you wish to view (if you followed the above steps it should have a "3D" label in the upper righthand corner)
4. Choose the cinema mode to begin playback
