ffmpeg
Mx player has a pack with ffmpeg codex. I got the side by side app to work on my note 2 with my vr headset. I can now watch all formats with it. The default media player plays everything now. No more "cannot play audio" messages anymore.

I have been reading up on the temp root procedure. Some files stay, some get wiped on reboot. This weekend, I plan on trying to see if I can successfully copy the ffmpeg libs to /system/lib and see if I get the same results. Then it will be a matter of will they stay after reboot. If they do, I will post the results here.

Aspect Ratio
Obviously you guys have a "cardboard" version in the works but as a quick fix maybe you could just add a "sbs" screen button for pre-rendered 3D files? Just a toggle to pixel ration of 2 and back again. I'm already able to watch these with MX Player (Tried 32:9 ratio first but found 40:9 looked best for some reason?) but I'm lazy and want to reduce screen touches. ;-p

What about 3D subtitle support?

Wondering if there's any news on a SBS, side by side, cardboard 3d version/solution?

After purchasing a Honami VR set I would love to be able to play 720p (or higher) mkvs with AC3 audio in a side by side manner... MX Player is one of few that actually produces sound, but no SBS yet.

The universal SBS app which works on some is not yet compatible with the Galaxy S6 (I assume it's not working with Android Lollipop 5.1.1 yet... As the latest CM version is CM12 which is 5.0.2) so that's no solution either.

The SBS/3D players I found so far only produce video, no sound...

Looking into seeing if I can load the ac3 audio codec in another way making it available to the standard video players but no luck so far (and no clue if it's even possible).

Cheers!

I'm backing up the feature request. Shouldn't be very difficult to implement (with subtitle support). Thanks in advance, dear dev

There's a bug while playing 3D video (SBS or OU). On 3D TV connected to android box the left and right fields have some horizontal parallax which is absent if I push USB flash with video right to TV.

Are there any news about this feature?
I really can't understand why they don't want to implement this feature when it so easy.

This feature would be really nice. I finally got cardboard and I have mostly AC3 movies. I do not want to convert just so I can sit back and watch a 2d movie in cardboard.

Is this the right place to ask about 360° videos support? 'Cause I think it would be pretty cool

I suppose this would be the right place... but what you you mean by 360° video?
