February 21, 2017

Just convert your MXF to SBS 3D MP4 format with the Gear VR MXF tips mentioned below, that’s the key point for us to easily watch and view our MXF videos on Samsung Gear VR.

Gear VR: The best mobile-based headset

If you have a late-model Samsung phone, save your money and get a virtual reality experience almost as good as that of the desktop and console-based headsets with the $99 Gear VR.Samsung partnered up with Oculus to get games and experiences for the platform. There is also a growing collection of 360-degree sports-related videos, and, of course, you can watch any of the VR videos available on the Web with the Samsung Internet app.

However, if you have other videos like MXF, is it possible to put them into Samsung handsets to watch MXF files on Gear VR with Galaxy S7/6/Edge/Note 4?

Before answering your question, let’s first take a look at what 3D formats are supported by Gear VR as below:
3D movie formats: .mp4, .m4v, .3gp, .3g2, .ts, .webm, .mkv, .wmv, .asf, .avi, .flv
Tips: the best video format is .mkv while audio format is .aac
3D movie resolution: 720p

Obviously, Samsung Gear VR does not play 3D movies or video with MXF format, fortunately, there are some third-party application such as Brorsoft MXF Converter for Mac (Alternative MXF Converter for Windows)(review) can assist you to convert all kinds of MXF to Samsung Gear VR supported formats listed above.

With it, you can fast convert MXF to Gear VR supported file type like MP4, MKV in .mp3, .aac audio. Best of all, this software allows you to convert MXF to 3D videos such as MXF Top-bottom 3D Video, MP4 Top-bottom 3D Video, MP4 Side-by-Side 3D video, which can be played on Gear VR perfectly.
