You may know about many popular safe torrent sites, such as The Pirate Bay, Kickass, etc., but may not know about YIFY. They are taking Blu-rays/DVDs and converting them to (on average) 1.5gb to 2.2gb .MKV or .MP4 by using a popular x264 encoding software like Handbrake. This is whay they always maintain movie torrents with high quality and smaller file size. 

I have been downloading a few 3D movies from YTS (formerly YIFY) for many years now and have been very happy with the quality. Can I watch a 3D YIFY file on my Gear VR? I’m having a problem seeing 3D YIFY MKV.
