This start guide is intended to help Gear VR owners to setup their headsets and playback VR videos.
This guide consists of 8 steps:
Insert your phone in your GearVR headset and go through the GearVR installation wizard. For more detailed instructions please refer to the official documentation from Samsung here.
The Samsung VR player, which is needed to play our VR videos, is currently available only in specific countries. To overcome this restriction you will have to use a VPN connection. Use your own VPN server or some of the free applications available on Google Play to change your location to the US. Some apps like Hola VPN, Batternet VPN or any VPN provider from vpncomparison can mask your location on the Oculus application.
Connect the phone to your PC and upload the video to your phone to the \MilkVR folder located on the root of your phone's internal memory or on an external SD card. If the folder doesn't exist, create it and upload the file (or files) there.
