When talking about watching 3D movies or video on Samsung Gear VR, we’re not referring to the 360 degree videos you see sometimes on YouTube, what we are really talking about are these regular 3D movies on 3D Blu-ray disc, downloaded from 3D Yify sites. How about viewing the 3D MTS video footage recorded with Sony 3D camcorder like HDR-TD10, HDR-TD20V or HDR-TD30V on Samsung Gear VR?

Organize your 3D folder

To watch movies on Gear VR, you will still need to install the Oculus Cinema App on above listed phone models, an additional folder will pop up on your Galaxy phone. That is where you put 2D movies in. For viewing 3D movies, make sure to create a “3D” folder (without quotes now and further on) inside the 2D folder.

Oculus Cinema app supported 3D movie format: 3D SBS format, although the 3D MTS video is not in that format, however, you can easily output Oculus app readable 3D SBS MKV format from 3D MTS video with our program.
For some movies happens to be in OU (Over/Under) or TB (Top/Bottom) format, you are required to add this specific .txt file with each movie you drop there.
Text file looks like this:
{
“format”: “3DTB”
}

Just copy the content alongside with brankets inside the text file, and save the file by naming it exactly as is shown on the movie title (or on the .mkv file)
