Import your own 3D movies to use in Gear VR 2015

Samsung's Peter Koo came on stage to announce a brand new Gear VR, which I guess we'll call "Gear VR 2015" from now on. The big news though is that when Gear VR 2015 ships in November (pre-Black Friday, says Peter Koo) it'll be compatible with all of Samsung's flagship 2015 phones—the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, and Note 5. How wonderful it is! Just as the previous Gear VR, you can play your own 3D movies using on Gear VR 2015 in Oculus Cinema with brilliant immersive viewing experience easily. So how do we accomplish this?

Import compatible 3D movies to Gear VR 2015

The short answer is to import your movie files (the new Gear VR by default supports most common file formats including MP4, AVI, and FLV) into the "My Videos" folder on your SD card. To view your SBS 3D video files on your Gear VR, 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 Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, and Note 5, dock the phone in your Gear VR 2015, and don the virtual reality headset.
  • 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.
