First, you can download some VR content from YouTube. Or you can convert the normal video to VR mode for watching with your VR headset. To convert video to VR forma, there is a good and practical video converter, called Video Converter Ultimate which is capable of converting any video to 3D or VR mode. It has the output preset for Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive, Ocuulus, etc. to make the virtual reality conversion easier. With this program, you can get more VR video by yourself and then transfer the converted VR video to your phone via Wi-Fi directly.
