Samsung had started sending out approval emails to customers who took advantage of the manufacturer’s promotion offering a free Gear VR with the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 edge. From the feedback, there are indeed many people getting a free VR when purchased the S7 or S7 Edge.

For those who get their first Gear VR, they may don’t know how to watch 3D movies on Gear VR via Galaxy S7/S7 Edge. So here, we gathered around all the tips and tricks about viewing 3D movies with Gear VR via Galaxy S7/S7 Edge. We hope it will be helpful.

Gear VR Supported Media Formats

.mp4 .m4v .3gp .3g2 .ts .webm .mkv .wmv .asf .avi .flv. In our opinion, .mkv is best, while audio is aac. Only audio which Android standardly supports work and that is AAC and MP3. AC3 and DTS were removed because of high licensing costs.

Make sure your movies are in 720p. John Carmack said the best format for movies is 720p, and when John Carmack says something, you better listen.

If you find your movie to be not in the right format, you can download?video converter program to convert your moviefile for Gear VR playback via S7/S7 Edge. I have personally used aPubsoft Video Converter, and am still amazed at how well it performs for a freemium program.

In Addition: Apart from Galaxy S7, Samsung Gear VR also works on the following Samsung Galaxy smartphones: Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6/S6 Edge/S6 Edge.

When you make sure your 3D video is supported by Gear VR, you can transfer the 3D videos to Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge to view on Gear VR. There are some steps below to teach you how to enjoy 3D movies on Gear VR via S7/S7 Edge successfully.

There are two ways to watch your own video content in the “My Videos” section of Oculus Cinema with Gear VR via Galaxy S7/S7 Edge. First, any movies you record using your Galaxy Galaxy S7/S7 Edge’s camera will automatically appear in the “My Videos” section. The other way is to copy Gear VR compatible video files directly to your Galaxy S7/S7 Edge phone or SD card

On a PC, your S7/S7 Edge’s storage can be accessed from Windows Explorer by simply plugging in the USB data/charging cable – no software is required. On a Mac, files can be transferred to your phone using Android File Transfer (https://www.android.com/filetransfer/), which is a free utility provided by Google.

When downloading 3D movies, you’ll notice that they come in either Side-by-Side (SBS) format, which comes in Full SBS and Half SBS, or Over/Under (or Top/Bottom) format. For the non-techie people, they refer to the resolution of the movies and the way the two frames are separated (vertically for the former and horizontally for the latter).

A Side-by-Side format comes in 1920 x 1080. Full SBS nets you the full resolution in both frames, while Half SBS gives you 960 x 1080 for each frame. On the other hand, the Over/Under format comes in 1280 x 720, with each frame coming in at 1280 x 360.

The Gear VR automatically assumes that all files in the “3D” folder are in the SBS format. If you have a movie in Over/Under format, you must create a text file to have it correctly read. Simply copy and paste the following to Notepad and save it in the EXACT name of the movie:

{
“format”: “3DTB”
}

Yes, the quotes are included. So, Over/Under movies in your 3D movies folder should have two accompanying files: the .png file for the poster image (assuming you got one) and the aforementioned text file.

Except for that last part which borders on the technical side, watching movies on your Gear VR is a simple matter. All you really need to do is copy your movies in the correct folder and you’re good to go.

 

Convert 2D, 3D TB Video to 3D SBS MP4/MKV for Gear VR viewing via Galaxy S7

 

Just like we said above, the perfect compatible 3D for Gear VR is SBS MKV and MP4. So if you have some 3D movies download from YIFY, YouTube, forfree3d.com, 3dmoviesstreaming.com or you have some 3D Blu-ray, DVD and want to view these videos on Gear VR via Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, you can use a video transcoder to re-encode videos to 3D SBS for Gear VR.

We aforementioned that we love to use aPubsoft Video Converter to convert unsupported video to 3D SBS MP4/MKV for Gear VR. Because it can convert any 4K/SD/HD video, TV shows and music dramas to 3D SBS video for Gear VR viewing on S7/S7 Edge.

Convert 3D SBS MP4 for Gear VR

Tip: We recommend using 1280 x 720 HD resolution to encode your videos. Higher resolutions will not provide any better quality, meaning you’ll waste space and processing power.

We also recommend using a higher bit rate than a typical web stream at that resolution, as the pixels in your video will be magnified on the phone’s screen. The optimal bit rate is content dependent, and many videos can get by with less, but 5 Mb/s should give good quality.

3D movies should be encoded “full side-by-side” with a 1:1 pixel aspect ratio. Content mastered at 1920 x 1080 compressed side -by- side 3D should be resampled to 1920 x 540 resolution full side -by -side resolution.

You can click “Settings” near the “Profile” to adjust the video resolution and bitrate to get more compatible format with Gear VR.

Step 3. Convert videos to SBS 3D MP4 for Gear VR

Click “Convert” button to convert video to SBS 3D MP4 or 3D SBS MKV on Windows 10/8/7/XP.
