How to watch 3D movies in VR

Everyone is used to the fact that, for the most part, VR is used for fully games. Virtual reality movies are a new trend for movie buffs. The experience is strikingly different from watching a traditional movie in a theater. The viewer no longer stands on the sidelines, but becomes the main character of the movie.

What is the advantage of VR movies, besides immersion? Anyone can set up a movie theater. It does not require expensive equipment and a PC. In addition, there is no need to leave the house, wait for your turn to buy a ticket, spend time on the road and waiting for the end of commercials.

What do you need to watch VR videos and movies?

Those who are unfamiliar with virtual reality technology may think that making your own personal VR movie theater is very expensive and complicated. In fact, it doesn't require any technical training. By the way, you can watch VR movies without access to the Internet - you just need to download the film to your device beforehand. The most important thing you definitely need is VR glasses

The leader in the VR industry, the choice of most, is the Oculus Quest 2. With this helmet, you can have a full virtual reality experience with movement around the room and in excellent quality. You can also use these VR glasses standalone without a computer. But you can also watch with other VR glasses

The best standalone VR glasses:

  • Oculus Quest / Oculus Quest 2
    These standalone headsets do not require a PC or phone to function. They offer a wireless ability to watch 3D movies and have a vast library of VR , including games.
  • Pico 4
    The helmet is self-contained, with its own processor, but it can be connected to a PC by wire or Wi-Fi with the ability to watch 3D movies. Also, if you want, you can play Oculus games released on PC through a special LibreVR utility or Virtual Desktop (emulated by Oculus Quest 2).
  • Samsung Gear VR
    The Gear VR headset is compatible with select Samsung smartphones. While its VR capabilities are more limited than those of standalone or PC-tethered headsets, it is an affordable option to view 3D movies. You'll want to stream with the Gear VR likely as there's less storage availability.
  • Google Cardboard and Google Daydream

    Google cardboard and Google Daydream view as low-cost mobile VR headsets and are compatible with a range of smartphones.

The best wired VR glasses:

  • HP Reverb G2
    The HP Reverb G2 is a PC-based VR headset for gamers who want something more powerful than the Quest 2 but can’t afford more expensive options from HTC or Valve.
  • Valve Index
    Valve's first proprietary VR headset. The Valve Index falls short of the HP Reverb in sharpness, but is ahead of the current Oculus Rift S PC headset. With full RGB LCD displays, 3D movie viewing is crisp and contrasty.
  • PlayStation VR
    For PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 owners, the PlayStation VR headset is an excellent choice. It connects directly to your gaming console, providing access to 3D movies and VR videos to download or stream.
  • Oculus Rift
    The Oculus Rift is a PC-tethered VR headset that requires a powerful computer to run. It provides a high-quality 3D movies experience, its dependency on a PC might be a drawback for some users, but it also means there's more storage to download videos. This is a good alternative to the Samsung Gear VR.
  • HTC Vive Pro 2
    Like the Oculus Rift, the HTC Vive is a PC-tethered headset (meaning higher qualities when you download videos) that delivers an impressive 3D movies experience.
