So I watched a YouTube of some dude casting his Gear VR screen to a TV, so of course a few hours later I’m back from Best Buy hooking mine up. My test Chromecasting Blu-ray ISO from Gear VR onto my PlasmaTV was cool so that I want to share my experience here.

I do own a large Blu-ray collection (a few DVDs) and all the discs are save in ISO on my 4TB external drive. ISO file plays the same as original disc and not as scratchy as physical discs; it also help me make room for the storage at home. So my test started in two steps:

1. Transfer ISO to Gear VR on my Mac. 2. Chromecast ISO from Gear VR to TV.How to transfer ISO to Samsung Gear VR with Galaxy Note 4?

As we know, Samsung Gear VR only deals with the content on its center machine – Galaxy Note 4. So the problem turns out to be how to move ISO to Galaxy Note 4. In fact ISO image files cannot be open on a Note 4 because it requires running virtual drive the mount the ISO firstly – there’s not, right?

Thing could be much easier if you got this Pavtube BDMagic for Mac, a reliable yet amazingly easy-to-use ISO Converter on Mac. This ISO to Gear VR Converter is able to rip (protected) BD/DVD ISO image into Gear VR compatible SBS 3D MP4 that works great. Give it a shot!


Step 1. Import Blu-ray/DVD ISO.

Run the best Mac 3D ISO Converter and click “File” icon to load your Blu-ray/DVD ISO files.

Step 2. Choose “MP4 Side-by-Side 3D Video(*.mp4) ” under “3D Video” category for your Gear VR.

If you like, you could adjust video codec, bitrate, frame rate, etc to get better quality 3D MP4 video. Meanwhile, you could choose 3D Depth in Profile Settings to avoid images misaligned. (Read the differences between Anaglyph 3D and Side-by-Side 3D).

Step 3. Hit the “Convert” button to transfer your 3D Blu-ray to MP4 Side-by-Side 3D video.

Then click the “Open” option to locate the created 3D SBS MP4 video and you are ready to transfer your 3D BD/DVD ISO to Galaxy Note 4 using USB cable or Kies on Gear VR for entertainment.
