Nowadays, mature supporting devices like 3D glasses, 3D TV/monitor, 3D projector, VR headsets, 3D players will offer more ways to watch 3D movies not limited to theater. You can view 3D movies easily via VR headset like popular VR Box. Luckily on YouTube, there is already a large amount of VR content to view on the VR Box headset. The easiest way to find this is to search for ‘Cardboard VR’ or ‘VR 3D’. If possible always try to go for 1080P content and above as I found that this provides the best experience.
