    So I have looked everywhere and cannot find an answer to this question. Where can I buy 3d movies to watch on gear vr? Are they available to download from play store or do I have to buy them from a third party? If they are available on play store where do I find them at? I bought a gear vr for my daughter for christmas and need to figure everything out now so when she opens her christmas presents I am not wasting all of Christmas trying to figure everything out. I have already ready everything about how to load the movies create the 3d folder etc I just can't figure out where to actually get the 3d movies from.

    I actually use a Windows program called Pavtube BD Magic. You will need a PC with a Blu-ray drive for this. I pop the disc in and open the program. The program reads the disc and then you can select just about any format imaginable for the final video file, as well as storage location. I did this for several of my 3D Blu-rays with great success: they look phenomenal in VR!

    You can probably do a quick Google search for specific formats you'll want - it's been awhile since I did it.

    They have some in the movies section of the oculus store too, once you enter in vr you can search through the menu although they are limited. I watched The Martian in 3d on it and was very cool.
