Gear VR, aka Samsung Gear VR, is the first generation product named “Innovator Edition” by Samsung, and this head-mounted virtual reality device can bring immersive gaming experience for the players, but other services as a multimedia center. Samsung is the pioneer in VR headsets and since then a lot of people have had some experience Gear VR as well as Sony PlayStation VR, HTC Vive/SteamVR, Oculus Rift, Google Daydream View as well as Windows Mixed Reality etc and they are said to be able to bring a pretty good feeling so I plan to rip and convert my 2D DVD and Blu-ray collections to 3D MP4 for Mobile or Tethered VR Headsets like Gear VR.
2D DVD/Blu-ray to 3D MP4 Ripper for VR Headsets
I have a copy of Leawo Bluray Ripper and spent almost a day trying to figure out what type of 3D output to use to rip my 2D DVD as well as Blu-ray discs to play on mobile or tethered VR headsets. I tried many formats and finally found a format that is perfectly compatible with Samsung Gear VR. I will walk you though about how to rip and convert 2D DVDs or Blu-rays to 3D MP4 and play on Gear VR and this works with other VR devices like Google Cardboard, Sony PlayStation VR, HTC Vive/SteamVR, Oculus Rift, Google Daydream View, Magicoo 3D VR Glasses etc.
Leawo Bluray DVD Ripper is so far the most powerful DVD and Blu-ray solution for H.265/HEVC, MKV, MP4, MOV, DivX, AVI, MP3, FLAC with the support the latest Disney DVD protection and MKB up to v63 at the very moment.

How to Rip and Convert 2D DVD/Blu-ray to 3D MP4 for VR Headsets like Gear VR
Follow the above two Download button to have a free trial of Leawo Bluray/DVD Ripper, which is the very solution for ripping 2D/3D Blu-rays and DVDs to VR headsets. Also, you can have Leawo DVD Ripper for DVDs only, which is about $10 cheaper. There is no double Leawo Bluray Ripper comes with more cost performance as it copies Blurays and DVDs!
Install and Launch Leawo Prof Media. Put a DVD or Blu-ray into the computer. Before ripping 2D/3D/4K Bluray to 3D MP4 for playback on Gear VR as well as other VR headsets, make sure you have a Blu-ray drive. A Blu-ray Drive should also be able to read DVDs.
Step 1. Load Bluray/DVD
After you choose Bluray Ripper, go for Add Bluray/DVD button and load from Disc to add DVD or Blu-ray to the program. If you have your DVD or Blu-ray saved to the hard drive instead of on the disc, click Add from folder or Add ISO file to add. Please be noted, while you add DVD IFO files from Files-Load from IFO/ISO, make sure the IFO files are along with associated VOB and BUP files, or you won’t be able to rip.
Step 2. Custom Profile for VR Headsets
After the DVD/Blu-ray is loaded, you will see the main title already been selected for you and MP4 Video comes as the default profile. Click on MP4 Video-Edit to custom a profile for your VR headsets.
You can change the video codec, resolution, aspect radio, bit rate to meet different VR Headsets. For Gear VR, PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, I recommend H.264 for better video quality.
Step 3. 3D Setting for VR Headsets
Click the Edit button below to enable 3D settings for VR headsets:
Go 3D, enable 3D Mode. I recommend Side by Side to rip your 2D DVD/Bluray to. Red/Cyan, Red/Green and Red/Blue are most compatible with 3D and VR players but this kind of 3D videos does not bring good experience for your 3D watching on VR headsets.
Step 4. Rip 2D DVD/Bluray to 3D MP4
While all above are done, you are free to set the output folder, preview the Bluray/DVD or just to directly to the big Convert button and start ripping 2D DVD 2D Bluray to 3D MP4 for VR headsets like Gear VR as well as Sony PlayStation VR, HTC Vive/SteamVR, Oculus Rift etc.
Besides, if you are ripping 2D DVD/Bluray to 3D MP4 for your Mobile VR Headsets that needs to store the 3D movies on your phone, make sure the output is less than 4 GB.
