There is a new ‘Couch Games Software’ on Google+ (goo.gl/1WQNDl): make sure to subscribe if you are interested in news about this app! And if you like solitude, check my newly created and almost deserted facebook group: facebook.com/vr.theater!!!

WARNING: this is a beta version, and although it seem to work fine on a lot of devices, it sports such astonishing features as:

• sub-par graphics
• boring instructions
• clumsy controls
• limited features
• embarrassing User Interface
• limited movie formats compatibility

VR Theater for Cardboard allows you to enjoy your own 2D and 3D movies in a virtual cinema, for free (it also supports panoramic 360° and 180° movies)!

Do you have your Google Cardboard ready (or, why not, a better headset, like the Homido VR)? Good! Just upload the movies on your phone (or open them directly from a browser or a 3th party application!), load them with this app, and enjoy!

VR Theater for Cardboard supports SBS, Over/Under and Red-Cyan anaglyph formats, as well as plain 2D movies in all formats originally supported by your phone (go for the .mp4 files for a sure hit: your mileage might vary with other formats), and can be used both on devices with a cardboard trigger, or with the ones without one (with a keyboard or a classic focus control scheme).

.srt subtitles are also supported, and can be selected manually, or automatically detected if they are named like the video.

Make yourself at home: check the “Options” menu and configure the theater to your liking!

The movie represented on the virtual screen (“Elephants Dream” (c) copyright 2006, Blender Foundation / Netherlands Media Art Institute / http://www.elephantsdream.org), can be freely downloaded in both SBS and over/under version at the URL: orange.blender.org/blog/elephants-dream-in-stereoscopic-3d
