2. Ensure your windows monitor is setup so your rift is secondary.

3. For 3D movies such as Big Hero 6:

Menu – Media – Format – Side By Side
Menu – Media – Projection – Plane

4. If your movie is not 3D

Menu – Media – Format – Mono

In my case the Oculus is my second monitor to the left. So I hit these keys:

Hit Windows Key + Cursor Key Left (Do this twice, this moves the window to your Oculus)
Hit Windows Key + Cursor Key Up (This maximizes the window)
Put on headphones and enjoy!
