So let's say I have got a split screen 3D video. My Google search results told me that if I just play it in VLC in my Nokia 3 and use a VR headset, I will get 3D experience. However when I play 360 degrees VR videos from Google, they are distorted and not rectangle in shape. So I am afraid that when I play rectangular side by side 3D videos, the videos will be distorted and the sides will be missing. So what should I do to convert the side by side video to the distorted VR like video? Is there any app or something?

I have not tried them yet as my VR headset has not yet arrived but I want to have everything ready as soon my VR arrives. (Basically I have decided to wait for some time and if I cannot watch 3D with cardboard I might not buy it)

Screenshot of how video should look like when seen by google cardboard(i.e. what I meant by distorted video) enter image description here

And this is what 3D split screen loos like and I intend to convert this to above form :enter image description here


Use a player like 3D VR Player to play the video..

There are many such VR Player apps in Play Store (search for it). All you need to do is download the right one you need.

  • Now that I have my VR headset, your app is not working. It is not callibrated and has no option to callibrate. I need something to scan my QR code and callibrate. – user226132 Aug 12 '17 at 9:10

  • Also note that I got it callibrated on Google cardboard app but that doesn't not play 3D videos – user226132 Aug 12 '17 at 19:49
