Hi all,

Been having an absolute ball watching 3D movies on a massive VR screen lately.    

Even looks good on a Rift/Vive (which is surprising as I don't usually watch movies on either of those), though higher res headsets are preferrable.    

This is all done with free, open source software (no trials!) and no additional codecs are required.    

This will work for the following headsets for sure:    
PCVR:  Rift, Vive, Vive Pro, WMR, Pimax    
Mobile VR:  Oculus GO, Googles Daydream, Gear VR / Galaxy, Google cardboard  

BLOG POST here if anyone prefers a text guide and pics:

VIDEO TUTORIAL here:


Enjoy!!

    Hey, how does the picture quality for 3d movies look on Rift vs Go?

    Much better on the GO.  I got this working on my Rift easy enough and it was fine actually.  But the GO is fast paying for itself on 3D movies alone.

    Thank you so much for this tutorial. I am now having a ball watching 3D movies on Oculus Go. Your instruction steps were very easy to follow.

    You're welcome  :]  Glad it worked all good for you.  Still one of my favourite things to do in VR

    The nice thing with with the Go is you can take it on a trip and watch amazing 3D movies anywhere.
