Plex for Samsung Gear VR

486DX50486DX50 Posts: 1Members

Hello,

 

I'm not sure where to post. I'm using Plex for streaming home videos and movies from my home PC.

Today I got Samsung Gear VR and there is a virtual theater app. I wonder if Plex developer team is considering making an add-on for Samsung Gear VR software to be able to stream videos from PC and watch them using virtual reality gear. It doesn't have to be the real VR or 3D video since Samsung software can playback my own videos from my smartphone on that virtual theater screen. I wish to be able to use Plex and Netflix on my Gear VR :)

 

Sincerely,

Plex user.

    I was just about to click submit on my order...... when I stopped to see if I could watch videos through PLEX, DNLA, Streaming service (Netflix, MGO, HBO go etc.) or stored local on the device. Can you do any of the others you did not list ?

    I just got the Gear VR and I am only able to whats videos that I add to my Note 4's SD card.

    Plex should either create a Plex app for the Samsung gear VR store. Or create a SBS option on their existing Plex app for android.

    I also have a Gear VR and as a PlexPass member would LOVE to have Plex support for side by side video to support the Gear VR. Willing to help test, etc if that helps.

    Plex is awesome dont know how id live without it haha

    Do you know how much publicity it would bring if they did something with the VR! I would guess there customer base would pick up some real momentum  :)

    Yes! Please!

    Let us know if you want to farm any of the work in creating this out!

    Maybe the community can create something if you don't have the time to make an official app!

    Not sure there is a large enough market for them to do this but it would be amazing!  I just got a Gear VR and I love it!   I would love to have a Plex plugin.

    I am also a Gear VR owner and it would be amazing to have Plex work with it, a portable movie theater I can strap to my head that I can stream my entire library too. With the new version coming out that is compatible with the Galaxy S6 the audience will be expanding greatly. THis would be the platforms killer app.

    It's a pity that Gear VR is not compatible with Plex. Do add this feature asap. Please.

    +1. I have a SGVR and would love this as well. I currently have to move my movies to the SD to watch. Watching my movies in the virtual theater is so much more immersing than watching on my living room TV and much cheaper (and quieter) than going to a theater. I just wanted to add my interest. I currently use the free version of Plex, but I would definitely sign up for Plex Pass if this were a paid exclusive feature! 

    Now if I could just find a way for the Gear VR to track the location of my beer. :)
