PlayStation VR, known by the codename Project Morpheus during development, is a virtual reality head-mounted display developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment, which launched on October 13, 2016.

In fact, MKV files in 2D or 3D SBS(Side-by-Side) work on PS VR, but the audio has to be encoded in AAC or MP3 for stereo. AC3 and DTS were removed because of high licensing costs. You can either wait till a developer brings a VR player which supports also custom codecs or you can convert your video files to ACC audio or root your phone and add codecs for AC3/DTS.

How to Import the converted 3D video file to PlayStation VR for playing

The PlayStation VR connects to your PS4 via a special converter box. You plug the headset's HDMI and USB cables into the box, then the box into your PS4. A secondary HDMI port on the box lets you send the image to your TV, so you can wear the headset and still play your friend who doesn't have a headset of her own. Now start importing your 3D SBS MP4 video to PS VR.

  • Plug the PSVR HDMI cable directly to your PC(Mac), not the breakout box.
  • In the HDMI OUT port of the PSVR breakout box, You have to plug a HDMI cable to a TV that is turned on. Could be bypassed by connecting something like Headless Ghost, (this will trick the PSVR breakout box into thinking a display is connected to it.)
  • After that, you should see your PC screen on the PSVR headset, not in cinema mode but your entire screen covering the whole PSVR display, then you can use VLC or something to display a SBS 3D movie.

Just enjoy! Have any problems you can seek help from Pavtube Video Converter!
