How to watch 3D 180º videos on Samsung Gear VR

Bypass Gear VR

The simplest way to watch ViRP videos is in the web browser on your phone. You will need to bypass the Gear VR service, either by inserting your phone into the Gear VR without actually plugging it in or by using Package Disabler Pro to temporarily disable the Gear VR service when plugging in your phone.
