The Gear VR’s capabilities are demonstrated with a set of included videos and others available from the Oculus Store, but users can import their own 2D and 3D movies to get the full experience. If the original format of your videos is not the MKV or MP4 then you’d better convert them. This requires third party software like HD Video Converter.
