If you are the lucky ones who have tried these old or new Samsung Gear VR, both in versions for the Galaxy Note 4/Note 5 to the recent Galxy S7 as well as Galaxy S6/S6 Edge/S6 Edge+ (or the same Oculus Rift), sure you’ve fallen in love with the virtual reality with its endless possibilities. They open when live experiences, enjoy the games from completely new perspectives and, of course, when it comes to watching 3D movies in the famous film that comes standard with the glasses. Ever thought of getting your movies on DVD discs to Gear VR for watching? If so, you’ve come to the right place. In this page, I will throw a quick tutorial up on how to watch DVD films with Samsung Gear VR with 3D effect.
Samsung Gear VR by default supports most common file formats including MKV, MP4, AVI, and FLV. When it comes to playing 3D videos, Gear VR requires either side-by-side or top-bottom (top down). So if you want to put DVD films to VR One for viewing with 3D effect, the first step is rip and convert DVD to Gear VR compatible SBS or top-bottom 3D videos.
In fact, with the right program, you can get all done easily and quickly. If you’re confused about choosing a suitable tool, I recommend you try Brorsoft DVD Ripper. The program is easy to use and can help you rip DVDs into side-by-side and top-to-bottom 3D MP4, MKV and other formats which is compatible with Gear VR in fast speed and excellent output quality. If you’re a Mac user, simply turn to its Mac version here, which has the same function as the Windows version.
