Virtual reality is here. It’s really fascinating to immerse in a world by using a VR headset and motion tracking to let you sit around a virtual space as if you are actually there. It’s all said, HTC Vive has intrigued the changes among the current wave of VR. Stunning graphics make it feel so real and surreal simultaneously. Once you put on the HTC Vive headset, what you want to do firstly? For me, it’s definitely to watch movies, especially watch Blu-ray Games of Thrones season 6 besides playing games. Is there any out-of-the-box solution for watching 2D/3D Blu-ray on HTC Vive? Well, follow this article, you will get the hand-on workflow by some effective tools here.
As far as I know, there is no native Blu-ray Disc drive in VR HTC Vive, so if you want to play Blu-ray on VR HTC Vive, the best way is to covert Blu-ray to MP4/MKV in 3D side-by-side or top-to-bottom by the help of a professional Blu-ray ripper, and Dimo Video Converter Ultimate for Mac is your best choice, it will save your waiting time when converting Blu-ray to 3D for HTC Vive within minutes by 6X fast-mode NVIDIA CUDA speed-up technology and its preset VR profile.
Step 1: Insert 2D/3D Blu-ray disc into your external BD driver, and launch the Blu-ray ripping software. After importing, click “Add Blu-ray” to load your movies.
