How to Rip and Watch 3D DVD on PSVR?
With a PSVR headset on hand, you can not only play games onto it, but also use it as a portal which will bring you in front of a giant screen displaying movies in 3D! As we already told about the way to enjoy 3D Blu-ray movies on PSVR, similar to it, we'll talk about the simple way to rip and watch 3D DVD movies on PSVR with immersive experience. Let's dive right in.
Generally, PSVR can display anything that your PS4 can deliver to your TV. Video content including DVDs, BluRay discs, 3D Blu-Ray discs, and video files will play what's called Cinematic Mode. A Cinematic Mode experience is like having a rectangular video image floating in front of you. However, PSVR headset doesn't have DVD drive support playing 3D DVD movies currently, if so, that means either should you have a 3D TV, or you should pay more $249.99 at least for a PS4 to let you view 3D DVD finally. In addition, most commercial 3D DVD discs are encoded with heavy copy protections like region code, CSS, RCE, Sony ARccOS and PuppetLock. Make it's hard to directly view 3D DVD on PSVR.
To solve these issues, we strongly recommend you rip/convert 3D DVD movies to PSVR supported i.g. 3D Side-by-side MP4 or MKV formats and access them in the Oculus Cinema content library directly without a PS4 or 3D TV. The job can be done effortlessly with the help of a 3D DVD to PSVR converter like Brorsoft DVD Ripper for (Windows/Mac).
