Cardboard / OpenDive owners rejoice! Now you can watch movies on your VR display.

VR Cinema app renders any MP4 video in a split-screen view suitable playback on virutal reality head mounted displays such has Google Cardboard, OpenDive,Homido ( etc.

The app also has a VR Camera function that uses front camera. Its really cool! But don't drive your car wearing your headset. Possible idea for augmented reality (AR) apps.

(Tip: For owners of Zeiss Cinemizer, Oculus Rift and Sony's Project Mophous you can use MHL or SlimPort cable to connect to your HMD's)

ToDo's coming soon for:
Integration with magnet.
Ability to stream online videos.
More video formats.
We will be adding more features and 2D to 3D conversion functions in our VR Player soon,

Didn't work The video is not working on a new z3. It shows the right hand almost at full size, but the left hand video is very thin and only shows only a slice of the video


This sucks. Worked out for one pass but only half screen shows up on subsequent viewings. Bad product management. Need to fix to keep customers from easily going to competitors. Low barriers to entry in this vr cardboard space. Get it right, man.

Excellent! I had to slightly cut out tiny slots on my Google cardboard where the side buttons and home button on my larger Note 2 sit and touch the Google cardboard so that the bottons aren't pressed down by the cardboard. I did this to accommodate my larger Note 2. The app is great and seems to work perfectly fine. I haven't yet gone through all the features but as of now I'll definitely rate it a five.

Angus Whitehouse

Free version better than paid I really wanted to support developer so bought paid version and it only plays from phone or SD card not network. I stream all my vids and love the free version but they have taken a great working app streaks ahead of the very few others that actually work and released a paid app that is far far worse than the free. I will periodically check the paid app. But for now guys your free app rocks. Why reduce features and remove what makes free app great and ask people to pay? Love your work and hope you can fix.

Gašper Rugelj

Too basic It works if all you want is splitting video into sbs format. It has no option for scaling (lower res videos some videos become really small) and most importantly, it doesn't support 3D videos.

Clive Chang

How do i exit?? Call me stupid but I cannot figure out how to exit the app once a movie is playing. The app hijacks the on screen buttons space and they dont re-appear. This may just be an issue with the Moto X. I've had to use the phones ability to launch from lock screen into the camera, hit the home button then force close the app. That problem aside, which is pretty big. I like it. Using a lowly 720p screen on the moto x, movies are more than watchable on cardboard. I look forward to testing things out on the droid turbo when it arrives

Simon Sieverts

Needs one major feature: Great app, does what it says but here's what I still expect: it really needs to recognise and play side-by-side stereoscopic format. Then it has a real reason to exist. I'm sure there must be a workaround, like a file name lookup - when the filename starts with "sbs", then the player knows it doesn't need to duplicate..... otherwise, it's an awesome app!

Qi Liu

Doesn't work with QHD phone This does not work on my LG g3. The movie was distorted and not side by side. Although it works on my other phone with 720p display. Please fix this for QHD phones.

Mircea Zloteanu

No sound I tried the app out, using an episode from a tv show, the split screen works fine, but i have no sound! any known remedy for this? Update - i wasnt using an .mp4, it play other formats but without sound.

Wyeth Watnik

Focal length Watched an episode of Cosmos, only issue is that on larger phones, note 4, the cardboard doesn't seem the whole screen. If you could have an option to change the focal length or have the screen appear farther away that would be awesome!

Ravi Patel

Best app for VR videos 'VR Cinema for Cardboard' is awesome app to watch HD videos. Overall great experience and looking for more useful and entertainment apps :)

Sreekant Shenoy

Highly recommend Good app for watching movies like you are in a could make the app more browsing videos with the magnetic click and also feature it with gyroscope..!! I will give you 5 out of 5 if you could develop this more..

Bryan Woods

Doesn't Work "renders any MP4 video in a split-screen view suitable playback on virutal reality head mounted displays" Thats exactly what it DOESN'T do. I loaded a .mp4 rectilinear movie and it played the movie side by side, which is pointless. Its supposed to split up the video into views for the left and right eyes. This just showed the entire rectilinear video in both eyes. I'd consider supporting this player, but I can't when its primary function just doesn't work. (Moto X 1st gen).

Azael X

A free version that doesn't play .avi? Really? Plays the audio fine, but will not play the video. Honestly, what is the point in a free version if it doesn't even support the most common video format that's used? Useless.

Rajesh Jethawani

Awsome The camera function works very well on my Moto E. The video function works well on most videos on the same phone, Moto E

Sean Bushby

Average Interface is fairly soft but its basic. If it had a zoom out feature it would be great. LG G3 and Carl Zeis VR One its too zoomed. Basic cinema as in "VR Cinema" would be cool.

Teo Astreban

it would be great if you implement some basic controls and an option to change the size of the video playing

Aymeric Paillet

Doesn't support MKV audio This is a major let down for me, as my videos are in MKV. To me this makes all the difference.

Klaas Dj

App sees deleted files Have tried to remove the app/clear cache etc., yet still already removed files remain in the apps file explorer. I hate that i cannot find where it gets this information.

PAUL cal

Works fine. Would pay for a version that allowed me to launch the netflix app in sbs format

Pajama Phoebs

DO NOT buy the pro version I have installed this free version and I'm happy with it, but since the free one doesn't support srt subtitles I have decided to buy the pro version. For some reason, lots of videos can't play using the pro version (black screen, audio only) but they can play using the free version though. Hopefully the developer can see this and get the problem fix ASAP (can't write review on pro version as I have used the google refund feature to get my money back)

Grant Wolz

Did not work on LG G3 Dose not work on large displays like my Lg G3. Videos do not line up side by side.

Ahmad Basofi

Good but... i play anime but the subtitle didn't appear, please fix this. Thanks :)

Anthony Lockett

Was a Good app Used to be great app. Was even considering buying Pro version today. But now it doesn't open up my files to watch movies on free version. The free version used to open up any file but now you have to pay to even test it out. So if I buy pro and it doesn't work I'm out money.. You should at least have a free trial to see if it works. Just doesn't seem fair

Dean Meehan

Bug The images need to be mirrored in each side, position wise and not centered at the midline, doesn't with then with cardboard... Z2 lollypop

Teja Kurniawan

yup, need upgrade .srt subtitle support and more compatibility with all kind of sounds like DTS

Charles Tucker

Doesn't work Worked on one or two mp4.files one time then wouldn't work at all.


Galaxy s3 +google cardboard+ colorcross No fuss, nice app for playing ur 2D videos or movies on ur phone so u can view them through VR glasses like colorcross.

Aaron Franz

Tiny FOV The FOV is very limited so a certain percentage of the image is not visible. Also, the pause button doesn't work.

Andrew McCreath

The only one that REALLY works I've just tried a dozen or so VR players, and this is the ONLY that works properly HTC One and Nexus 5 tested on Google Cardboard ;) Thank you... will buy the Pro version!

Jaimy Alabado

Great app! Would love it if it had subtitle support. Sometimes locks in portrait but it doesn't happen often.

Alexander Smith

Interesting app! Fun, great start to video on Cardboard. However, most videos I run in it are too large and are placed directly side by side. Each video should be smaller with gaps between them so they are more clearly seen.

Michael Chan

Best VR Player if..... I would have give this a 5 stars if...I can choose this player when I select a video from a file Manager like ES file Manager. The free version allows this to be done. Also I noticed that there is no sound with some of the movies eg mkv files. I believe it's a codec issue. Please provide feature to include external or custom codec like MX player. Other wish list would be to include External SD Card or USB drive when scanning for video. Thanks. Great product nonetheless.

Sarvesh Joshi

Can't play sbs Screen splits into 4 instead of playing the SBS video. App just turns a video into 2 screens, can't detect the format I guess.

Joe De Luna

It's alright , I downloaded it thinking it would be better and let me play videos from another app. but overall alright

Vithuran Karvan

Doesn't work Video doesn't load screen is blanck

Geoff Clements

Thought this was for real 3D... Was excited to play stereoscopic videos in my cardboard. When four views came up instead of two I realized this app is worthless.

Carlos Estupinan

Video wont fit I cant see the whole screen when looking at it on my cardboard. I use it with my nexus 5

Aditya Wienardi

Not working on xperia z2 The screen projection isnt balance, the image is too much further right on the right screen and the left screen didnt show the image correctly. Please fix this and i will give 5 star

Davey Waterson

Poor network support Upgraded then canceled as free app supports network shares and paid app doesn't.

Nikolay Zherebtsov

No sound on Nexus 5. Not the whole screen is visible.

Алекс Копров

Великолепно! Just awesome!

Arman Khan

Good but Need more works on render like 3D.get one side of screen of video lit changed angle

Gaming Peanut

IT ACTUALLY WORKS This one is simple just click the video you want and boom! No configuring or nothing

Zeeshan Afzal

Great but only one problem It's really great but one problem. Can't play subtitles.


Loved it need to share Amazing app, I have been searching the appstore for so long for a good VR app to finally find this perfect app. One thing, it would be great if there was a way of sharing the doubled video and saving the video for later. All in all, a deserving 5-star app and is so easy to use so loved it.

gene arnold

Why would I buy pro if basic won't work.. Drift is unreal.. And won't load most things

abe bobbie

Should improve It's working.. But Cant see the movie subtitle.. Or cant settings for movie subtitle

Manny Singh

The greatest app ever made. Just download whatever video you want and this turns it into a virtual reality

Ryan Schmid

Does not work on my cardboard. Video is split in 4, so my eyes see double. wtf

Martin Walsh

Doesn't work. Tried converting video to multiple formats, but none work. Chose one of the alternatives.

Angari Dikshith

Supports with THEATER GLASSES I have purchased lenovo k4 note THEATER GLASSES and I used to see the movies through those glases .......IT WAS AWASOME nd ofcourse I felt I am in theater ......nd now I can fullfill to watch all the old movies which I have ever seen in [email protected]

Danish Mumtaz Mirza

One of the best I can't stop my self from giving you 5 stars. great work.

Bradley Stevens

Works great on download videos and picks, but can't watch online stuff

Faisal Ahmed

WTF I'm what the fukc is this.. Didn't even work on my s6 edge.

Sengupta Santam

I tried a movie in MP4 format. The Movie plays fine but there is no audio.!!!!

Jarno S.

It often just crashes if I rewind/fastforward on an OTG connected USB keyboard, but not if I just click the progress bar with a mouse. I prefer to use the keyboard, though. I hope you can fix it soon.

hitesh kayat

Some functions missing The creators need to small the size of the screen. The video is playing on the whole screen the screen of video should be smaller than the screen to be able to view the full video some of the sides of the video is not seen because the lens on Google cardboard is small to fix this problem the video size is to be reduced. You should fix this in the next update.

Christian Haugan

Works great..but often starts the video at the beginning again If i need to send a txt og take a call. And then go back to the movie. It starts at the beginning...every time. FIX IT!

Kaden Mystic

5 Stars I love this app because of it's simplicity. With this app...I am able to watch any video on any of my android phones. Very straight forward and simple. I recommend this app.

Drew Mcgee

when i try to watch a 3d movie which is already side by side this app splits it again so that there are 4 frames instead of 2. i don't see any settings to fix this. :(

Rod Schulz

Moto x play Been using it for a while and so far the best I've had

Aditya Kiran Reddy Pallela

It can't play large size videos smoothly It's unable to play Blu-ray etc (large size format) videos smoothly, the frames in the video move very slowly, I experienced the same in mx player while playing those (same) videos but when I changed the decoder to software decoder then the video plays smoothly, so you guys please include software decoder option.

Pavan Kumar

Good app Good quality good playing no crashes wonderful vr movie experience

Aviv Beeri

Just needs playlist functionality I really like this app. Its simple and effective. I do wish I could cue up multiple videos as a playlist, preferably so that the list can loop. I look forward to updates!

Orlando Roberts

Access other video players or other apps This is a,great app just wish you could play other video apps here like amazon or google play. To watch those movies in vr

Gellai István

This is a wonderfull app, I like it really much. The only thing I miss is, that it does not remember the folder I was played the video from, so if I want to play more clips from the same folder I have to browse It again. Otherwise everything is great, awesome app!

Jed Zerna

No Audio on HD videos or 1Hour video I love the app but some of videos that audio wont sounds..i hope this will be fix soon..

Gal Root

Almost perfect, I'll change to 5 stars when 1. Add option to change screen size! 2. Subtitles support. 3. 3D sbs support.

Nick Smith

Very good It looks like I'm watching videos on a huge screen. My only complaint is that it doesn't maintain the source video aspect ratio (ex. 16:9). I get that it would make the screen seem less large, but I think it would be worth adding an option so people can choose how they want it to display. Other than that it's a pretty awesome app!

Isaias Perez

Room for improvement but usefull overall. No playback issues from me but it would help to space out the two images slightly. Not sure how other viewers are made but mine has a seperator in between and since there is no space on the video, once viewing, the edges of the picture are doubled. Adding a custom spacing option would be excellent! Also, I found the camera option to be useless for me.

Gregory Gardias

This app has a lot of potential. I like that ppi screen resolution and screen size is not wasted on dumb and wasteful gimmicks. (Oh wow! Look I'm in a theatre) If this app allowed me streaming access (eg.ES file explore) and played 3D side by side movies I would give this a perfect 5.

Danjovi .sagat

Finally got it working! Its googles fault this app would not work on a Samsung galaxy s4! Solution: disable Google maps & Google launcher. The results are amazing! It can run 1080p videos through the app. Viva LA resistance.

richard alano

Still the best among the rest Best virtual reality cardboard player ever but still hoping for a more optimize for more movie file format... One thing I've noticed that it restart after long played movie for 30 minutes... Full support for this developer


One minor problem When I play a video it doesn't show the whole video. The sides are cut off a bit. If there is a way to fix this pls tell me, otherwise amazing app, been searching for this a long time

Matt Riensch

Works... but audio is off Not sure if anyone else has noticed, but there is roughly a half a second delay on the video so it doesnt sync up with the audio... VR theater doesnt have this issue and the video's work fine

Gary Kambo

Does not show full screen I'm unsure why an app would be developed to show two 4:3 screens cutting off the edges of the picture. It needs to be 16:9 at the very least and not cut off anything.

Satish Chodankar

Perfect This is a perfect app to watch vr cinema. Don't go for any other. If I had credit card I would like to buy pro version of this. There should be forword and revind button. Otherwise good. Thanks

Anoop Vargheese

Really good It would help to have a non-touch based interface. Otherwise you need to take it out of the Cardboard headset every time you want to pause or change the video.

John Hoang

It's working great but does not support AC3 or DTS. This is one of the best player for 2D movies. But it does not support DTS or AC3 therefore there is no audio on many movies. Please add DTS & AC3 codec. This player deserves 5 stars. But since it does not support DTS & AC3 I can only give 3 stars.

Matthew O'Brien Jones

Xperia Z2 Doesn't display correctly on xperia Z2. Works for approximately 5 seconds, then the display warps showing only one of the eyes on the right side of the screen. Definately has potential if fixed.

Dietmar Schröder

Nice Design but doesn't work on my nexus 5 No video playing at all. Shows just the controls on a black screen. But menu is at least already material design. ?

Roger Piper

Great App Best side by side video player out there so far. Tried a few video vr players but none have been as good as this one. So worth downloading

Taylor Green

Works on the first try, weird sizing issue after that. Freezes when fast forwared sometimes. Unusable right now. Xperia T2 Ultra

Shreejesh Pankaj

Good but not enough This is one of the better players but just wish it had the option to adjust the screen size because the display is far too large on my 5.5 inch screen. Otherwise, zero drift and good sharper visuals.

Phil Alford

Force close on launch Used to work on my LG G3 (D850) but now just force closes on launch. I'll wait for a fix considering I already paid for it last year
