How to Creat playable 3D MP4 for Gear VR quickly?

step 1: Add downloaded 3D movies 

Launch downloaded 3D movies to Gear VR converter. Click "Add video" button to add the downloaded 3D movies. This software supports batch conversion so you can add more one 3D movies at the same time. 

Step 2: Choose right format 

Gear VR supports MP4, MKVI, etc format. You can click the "Format" bar and choose "MP4 Side-by-Side 3D Video (*.mp4)" or "MKV Side-by-Side 3D Video (*.mkv)" from "3D Video" profile list for your Gear VR. 



Step 3: Start Transcoding process 

Click "Start conversion" button on the right to start transcoding downloaded 3D movies to Gear VR. After the process, just open the output folder to locate the created 3D movies. 

To view your 3D movies on Gear VR nicely, follow these steps:

  • On your MicroSD card file directory, navigate to Oculus > Movies > Your Movies  
  • Create a new folder within "Your Movies" and label it "3D"  
  • Import or move your side-by-side 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 isn't already), dock the phone in your Gear VR, and don the virtual reality headset.


Then:

  • Navigate to Oculus Cinema from the main menu  
  • Navigate to "My Videos" from the Oculus Cinema content library menu  
  • 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)  
  • Choose the cinema mode to begin playback


The software is coded to automatically convert any video in the "3D" folder for 3D playback. While the included documentation and tutorials don't make the process completely obvious, the answer is buried in the literature accompanying the Gear VR's Oculus Mobile SDK along with plenty of other tips on importing your own content for viewing on Samsung's virtual reality headset. We'll be sharing more of these helpful tips and tricks in the coming days.
