It seems like everyone is having a crack at making a virtual reality headset, including LG. Recently, LG released its own virtual reality headset - LG 360 VR. Perhaps, a comparison chart between LG 360 VR and its most obvious competitor, Samsung Gear VR will make you learn LG 360 VR better.

I think the biggest drawback of LG 360 VR is that LG VR Headsets is only compatible with LG G5. But if you are a LG G5 user or you have the plan to change your handset to LG G5, this drawback will be inexistent. So, when you get your LG 360 VR, you maybe want to get some 3D demos to experience the immersive virtual reality with it. You can download 3D videos from YouTube and anyother 3D video download sites. Of course, you also can make some personal 3D videos out of 2D/3D source with some VR Video converters.

a. Adjust target video settings and 3D effect.
Click “Settings” which is next to “Format”, free change your target video size, bitrate, frame rate and 3D depth. If you want to get best video quality, pls switch them to “original”. 3D movies should be encoded “full side-by-side” with a 1:1 pixel aspect ratio. Content should be resampled to 960x720 resolution full side--by--side resolution. We also recommend using a higher bit rate than a typical web stream at that resolution, as the pixels in your video will be magnified on the phone’s screen. The optimal bit rate is content dependent, and many videos can get by with less, but 5 Mb/s should give good quality.
