Hi All
I have some side by side (3D) videos on my phone, and Id like to watch them in MX player using my Google cardboard.
At the moment, The video takes up the whole screen, and the field of view of the cardboard is to small to see the whole video.
If I zoom out, It zooms from the middle of the screen, which obviously screws up the image, as it's no longer in the center of your eye.
Id like a way to zoom out from the center of each half of the screen, so the video would split in the middle.
Is this possible?
Thanks,
Tommy

I second the request, it would be great to be able to use MX player with google cardboard (or other VR headsets) to either watch 2D videos like on a big screen and 3D SBS videos.

I would like to third this. I have a cardboard and some SBS 3d movies. Zooming out so that each side is still centered would be ideal as MX Player is main player for videos.

I am also looking for a Video Player app that will play the 3D SBS videos with Google Cardboard in a better way. I have the same problem. I would love to be able to zoom out the video so it looks like you are watching the 3D video on a virtual theater screen (just like the YouTube section inside Google Cardboard app). So, for all you talented Developers out there, check out the YouTube section inside the Google Cardboard app. Develop a video player that will mimic that experience. You can do it!!!!!!!!!!!!

If anyone can contact the Developer of MX Player, then ask them to please create a Virtual Reality Cinema mode for MX Player. I believe that this would be the best solution for watching 3D SBS videos with Google Cardboard.
