YIFY uploades good quality prints in DVD, 720p, 1080p and 3D quality and they usually wait for the official release of movie DVDs or Blue-ray discs, and then they rip and encode the movie DVDs or Blu-rays to MP4 or MKV videos by using a popular x264 encoding software - Handbrake for the H.264/MPEG-4 codec. This is whay they always maintain movie torrents with high quality and smaller file size.
The point here is, Gear VR Innovator Edition requires either side-by-side or top-to-bottom (top down) 3D video files, while 3D YIFY MKV is not well supported. That means if you got some 3D YIFY .MKV to Gear VR Innovator Edition, you may fail. A possible solution I've worked out is to convert 3D YIFY MKV to Gear VR Innovator Edition supported 3D SBS videos first.
