If you have tried the new Samsung Gear VR, both in versions for the Galaxy Note 4 or Note 5 to the recent Galaxy S6/S6 Edge/S6 Edge+, I’m sure you’ve fallen in love with the virtual reality with its endless possibilities. Of course, when it comes to watching popular 3D MKV movies in Gear VR, it will be another very different experience. You can adjust the distance according to your eyes. This helps your eyes to focus and makes the images more clear.
As far as we know, if the resolution of your phone is 2K or higher, then the viewing experience will be much better.
However, you may have found that you always couldn’t watch 2D MKV movies in Gear VR. According to the list of Gear VR supported formats, you’ll see that Gear VR doesn’t give support for MKV movies. So in order to enjoy 2D MKV movies in Gear VR with 3D effects, we need to do two things: one, convert MKV movies to a friendly format for Gear VR – MP4 format; two, transform 2D movies to Side-by-Side 3D movies.
Here I highly recommend Pavtube 3D Video Converter(Mac Version) to assist you to enjoy 2D MKV movies in Gear VR. As 2D MKV movie files, 3D movies also have their own file formats like 3D MP4, 3D MKV, 3D WMV and 3D AVI. Imagine how amazing it will be if you are able to change your favorite action film into a 3D adventure. Meanwhile, sharing your final 3D version of home movies on YouTube could also be a lot of fun. You can even control the depth of 3D. This will be especially useful if you own many 3D-capable devices (Samsung Gear VR, Google Cardboard, HTC Vive, Zeiss VR One, etc.) – all of your favorite movies can become any type of 3D you want.
