The Gear VR, Samsung’s first mobile virtual reality headset, has lit up the imagination of both smartphone and VR enthusiasts. Using the Oculus Cinema to playback your own videos/movies is a cinch. In order to expand your movie experience on Samsung Gear VR, why not transfer some videos like VOB to Gear VR for playback. In this page, I will outline the simple guide to play VOB files on Gear VR.
