Set up and Enjoy 2D/3D movies videos on VR Box

With the fast VR technology development and more VR devices available, the place you stand nowadays cannot limit where the sphere of your vision any more, but your mind can take you step into an amazing virtual world. Moreover, screens are smart enough now that you can watch a 2D/3D movies not only from dedicated cinema, comfortable home but also smartphones anywhere anytime, only if you own a VR headset like VR Box, it's actually pretty easy to do. But, in the era of 2D/3D video contents coming first, do you know how can I enjoy or watch a 2D/3D movie with VR Box? Here we go. 

Part I: See what you will need to let 2D/3D movies to play on VR Box: 

1. A 2D or 3D movie. Even you can find a VR content if the VR version of the movie has be released. Note: If no 2D movies existing and you don't like to buy a 3D movie from Amazon or Plex, you could use the 3rd party 3D movie maker shortcut to help you convert 2D to 3D quickly.

2. A smartphone. No matter what you have is iPhone or Android, the working one will be OK which I'm sure your phone in hand can perfectly fits the VR Box. Here, VR Box supports 5-6 inch smartphones with Gyro sensor.

3. A VR Box. Here we'd like to take VR Box for instance as its beautiful price of $15 around, the good plastic VR alternative to kidstyle Google Cardboard of $20. 

4. A VR player. The best VR video player for Android/iPhone that can play VR videos 360 degree or 3D SBS   

Part II: Detail Steps to watch 2D/3D movies on VR Box

Now, in this article I will tell you in detail, see how to watch 3D movies on  smartphones with  VR BOX glasses virtual reality if the video in normal 2D/3D format.(Here takes Android device as an example)

Q1: Where can you rent a movie in 3D?

 A1: You can download 3D movie with any  3(D) vr torrent site

Using torrent. To do this you need to install Torrent, then search for the desired movie on demand and start download movie Torrent in the program.

Q2: What if your 2D/3D movie format are not supported by VR Box? 

A2: As far as we know, the VR Box requires playing either Side-by-Side MP4 video, or 360 degree videos using the installed VR player. Before importing 2D/3D movies to play on VR Box, you must make sure you have placed your video in  the appropriate format. 

While, the built-in formats of 360 degree videos on YouTube are mostly MP4 and Webm; and those on Facebook are MP4 videos in MP4 codecs. And different VR video players might have different supports for video formats, resolutions, aspect ratio, etc. Some MKV movie files(downloaded from Internet or some raw Blu-ray rips in MKV) in 2D or 3D SBS(Side-by-Side) work on VR Box, but the audio has to be encoded in AAC or MP3 for stereo. AC3 audio and DTS Dolby don't seem to work.

Worse still, VR Box lacks ability to play 3D Blu-ray movies. 3D Blu-ray in general acts on the principle of alternating frames for each eye, although there are several methods that can be used. For example, odd-numbered frames might be for the left eye whereas even-numbered frames are for the right eye. Side-by-side 3D means taking each frame, compressing them horizontally, and fitting them in a single frame. This results in the separate left-eye/right-eye 1920×1080 frames becoming two individual 960×1080 images inside the same frame. When you look at these, you can actually see the 3D composite if you use the "relaxed eyes" method.

And for that we need a 2D/3D movie on the hard drive of computer and a professional 2D/3D Video Converter program which can helps you re-encode any 2D/3D movie files to VR Box more compatible 3D SBS formats and make 3D movies accepted by your VR Box or other any VR Headsets like Homido VR, HTC Vive, PSVR, Gear VR, Oculus Rfit, etc. with ease.

Q3: What is the best VR video converter for VR Box? 

A3: While for the second, Dimo Video Converter Ultimate (Win/Mac) can surely do the help. Besides Side-by-Side outputs, this software provides Top bottom and Anaglyph 3D mode in MP4, MKV, MOV, WMV, AVI formats to meet your different needs. In addition, if you want to edit videos, set desired audio tracks for ouput, add text watermark to videos, apply special effects, etc., all these can be easily achieved with this powerful tool. Now download the program and let's learn how to do it.
