From what I understand the Rift has stereoscopic 3D capabilities. Does this include the DK2? Does the DK2 still reta its 1080p HD resolution when 3D? And lastly, do I have to buy 3D movies to utilize this or does it have an effect while watching regular movies?

As for my setup, I plan to buy a USB 3D Blu-ray drive to watch movies and I’m wondering if the 3D blu-ray qualities carry over to the rift? Do I need to download some sort of program to make it work or can I just plug the rift into my laptop?

All right, let’s just face the user’s question, a word: DK2 for 3D movie, what do we need?

DK2 is the latest development kit for the Oculus Rift that allows developers to build amazing games and experiences for the consumer Oculus Rift. Its great positional tracking feature is a key requirement for virtual reality; with it, the Rift can accurately map all of your real world head movements.

Currently movie players that work with the Rift might not work with a 3D Blu-Ray disc. They work great with 3D videos such as side by side and over/under MP4 or MOV files. So the most important thing we should do is to use a Blu-ray ripper to convert Blu-ray/ISO to 3D MP4 or 3D MOV format. Now we will show you a detailed solution of watching 3D Blu-ray on Oculus Rift DK2.

Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 represents a significant improvement over DK1. For DK2, the screen has been upgraded to an OLED model running 1920 x 1080, or 960 x 1080 per eye, which is precisely 2.25x more pixels. Nowadays, many customers bought Oculus Rift DK2 to play high-definition 3D movies on it and now what I am trying is to put 2D/3D Blu-ray, DVD and ISO onto the DK2.

You can indeed watch any movie on the DK2 in pretty much any format you wish (.mkv, .mp4, .avi etc). However, Oculus Rift DK2 do not include a drive for playing Blu-ray/DVDs; Commercial BD/DVD discs usually are protected from copying; the ISO files are back-ward supported by DK2. So what’s the solution for copying 2D/3D Blu-ray, DVD and ISO to Oculus Rift DK2?

With a 3D Blu-ray Ripper, you can rip 2D/3D Blu-ray, DVD and ISO to Rift DK2 compatible 3D SBS format for playing freely without losing any video quality.

Step 3. The Oculus Rift CV1 claimed officially the specs of CV1 is 1200×1080 (per eye) but not by that much, at 1080×1200 per eye (to my best knowledge). With the DK2, the effective display resolution for watching movies on the biggest screen size that’s still comfortable is not quite 480p. So for high fidelity, you can downsize it to 960×1080 per eye or other lower resolution. You can adjust the size in “Settings” in Pavtube ByteCopy and different bitrate, size leads different 3D effect in different movies. You also can adjust 3D depth in “Settings”. Try different 3D depth, you can get different 3D effect on CV1.
