This tutorial show you how to rip the 3D Blu-ray to 3D MP4 for play on your Oculus Rift with the side-by-side 3D effects.
With 3D display and tilt sensors, Oculus Rift VR headset is not only designed for gaming, but also be used for movies as well. Step into Rift and watch an immersive VR movie, jump to a destination on the other side of the world. The screen looks huge and so do the pixels. Since now VR sources are so limited, and in 2016 it's not legally buy and download 3D movies in any resolution, then is it possible to watch purchased 3D Blu-ray with Oculus Rift (including the latest development kit for the Oculus Rift- DK2) while lying in soft sofa for a true theater entertainment instead of going to cinema?
Of course Yes! To play 3D Blu-ray on Oculus Rift without limitations, many users are looking for VR players to make Rift (DK2) to afford 3D Blu-ray movies.
