Transcode 3D YouTube to play on Gear VR

Nowadays, many people are good at creating a 3D video on YouTube But how can we watch 3D YouTube video on Gear VR, a cutting-edge development kit for mobile virtual reality? One possible solution is to directly get YouTube 3D videos on Gear VR with YouTube application. Alternatively, you can transfer some 3D YouTube movies downloaded on computer to Gear VR, so that you can play 3D YouTube videos on Gear VR without YouTube opened.

However, most of 3D YouTube videos are 3D files in FLV format and the 3D YouTube .flv is not a compatible format for Samsung Gear VR, so you’d better convert your YouTube videos to Gear VR playable 3D SBS files in advance. Actually, there are plenty of tools for converting YouTube videos, but a professional YouTube 3D video converter is what you need indeed.
