How to start the Samsung Gear VR?

by wborre » Tue Jun 30, 2015 3:53 pm

I made an Virtual Tour which worked perfectly with my HOMIDO HMD.
But how to use the Samsung Gear VR ?(with galaxy S6)
When I put my S6 in the Gear VR the Oculus software starts automatically.. (and the webbrowser disappears...)

Thank you Cliquetsy.
Unfortunately the Galaxy S6 won't fit in the Gear VR without using the connector...
It will work for galaxy Note 4 .. but not for the S6....

You need to hold the connector up first.. and put the phone under the connector.
Then click it in.

Dit it today and it worked..

Thank you all.
But for the S6 and the (new) Gear VR this isn't possible. Even when I hold the connector up there isn't any space to fit the S6

@Kolor ; Are you planning for a solution for Samsung Gear VR (with S6) ?? because the VR experience is exceptional on this combination (no lag at all)

We are working for the kolor eyes video player under the MILK environnement but not for PTP exports.
As you said, it's impossible to put the S6 with the connector unplugged ?

You could try the following solution:
- Install Package Disabler from the PlayStore
- Open it and check the box on the Gear VR Service
That's it. You can now plug your S6 into the Gear VR without Oculus Home starting up and use Cardboard apps.
To use Oculus Home again, just uncheck the Gear VR Service in Package Disabler.
