Can you watch downloaded videos?

If I have a movie downloaded onto the phone, can I watch it on the VR? In other words, does it have a media player?

Also, how is the movie quality? Does it feel like you're in a theater, or just in a room watching a 50" TV? How is watching Netflix/Hulu?

Thanks in advance.

Yes you can watch downloaded/ripped 2D and 3D videos in Oculus Video (in a Cinema, home theater, on the moon, Ant cinema, and void) and also new in Milk VR on a curved screen. Aslong as they are in a supported format like mp4 and mkv and audio like AAC and mp3, sadly AC3 and DTS are not supported yet.

You can also watch the videos you have recorded with your phones camera in the cinema.

Best video quality is 720p for 2D videos and 1080p for 3D videos, but the actually perceived resolution quality is more like 360-480p but it feels like you watch it on a massive cinema screen.


In Netflix you are sitting in a cabine and watch the shows on like a 110" TV. Hulu is not released yet.

So you're saying 720p 2D movies look better than 1080p 2D movies on it?

And is there any way to hook up a blu-ray player/blu-ray drive to the thing and watch blu-rays/DVDs?

1080p would be just a waste of cpu power and battery, as 720p is max for 2D.

And no you cant hook up a bluray/dvd player to your Gear VR but you can put the files on your phone and then play them.

That would be cool though, if a BluRay Player was bluetooth and could stream video to a device like a tablet or phone.
