Oculus's cinema app could be one of the most compelling parts of virtual reality.

When you try to do this, the VR display may play some MKV files with no sound issue. So, what's the matter?

Actually, MKV files in 2D or 3D SBS (Side-by-Side) work on Oculus Cinema, but the audio has to be encoded in AAC or MP3 for stereo. AC3 audio and DTS Dolby don't seem to work. In this case, the easy and quick solution is to convert MKV files to Oculus Cinema more compatible format to get them to play nicely. In this article, you'll learn how to view MKV files on Oculus Cinema with the audios preserved nicely. 

In fact, it's a easy job. In order to watch MKV movies on Oculus Cinema in perfect sound and 3D effect, you just need a right program and convert MKV to .mp4, .m4v, .3gp, .3g2, .ts, .webm, .mkv, .wmv, .asf, .avi, .flv, etc. for smoothly playing with Oculus Cinema without MKV codec installed. Then which app can help you do the conversion work fast? At this time, the third party program called Dimo Video Converter Ultimate has been proven to be an outstanding 3D video converter. 

This program features high efficiency and seamless conversion.

Guide to Convert MKV videos for Oculus Cinema 

Step 1: Add MKV clips 

Install and launch this best MKV Converter for Oculus Cinema; click "Add File" button to import the MKV files to the converter.

Step 2. Decide output format 

Tap on "Select Format" bar and find "Format > Video", there are a lot of format options for you. "MP4", "MKV" or "MOV" is recommended for Oculus Cinema. Of course. 

Step 3. Specify video/audio parameters 

Click Settings button to adjust video/audio parameters like video resolution, bitrate, audio codec, audio channel. According to my experience, anything over 720p does nothing but turn battery energy into heat, due to the screen resolution. We also recommend using a higher bit rate than a typical web stream at that resolution, as the pixels in your video will be magnified on the phone's screen. The optimal bit rate is content dependent, and many videos can get by with less, but 5 Mb/s should give good quality. Remember to keep audio encoder to AAC or MP3. 

Step 4. Add 3D Effect 

Click "Edit" and turn to 3D, then choose "Left-Right" and click "OK" to set 3D mode for viewing MKV in Oculus Cinema with 3D effect. 

Step 5. Start transcoding MKV to Oculus Cinema 

Click the "Start" button at the bottom-right corner of the interface to convert the MKV file to Oculus Cinema compatible video files. This Video Converter will finish the conversion in just a few minutes. After the conversion, click "Open" icon to locate the converted video files. Now you can transfer the converted MKV videos to play with Oculus Cinema easily. 

Step 6. Watch Your MKV Videos in Oculus Cinema 

There are two ways to watch your own video content in the "My Videos" section of Oculus Cinema. First, any movies you record using your phone's camera will automatically appear in the "My Videos" section. The other way is to copy your compatible video files directly to your phone or SD card in any of the following directories: 

On your phone's internal storage (Phone): 

/DCIM/ 
/Movies/ 
/Oculus/Movies/ 

On your phone's removable SD card (Card): 

/DCIM/ 
/Movies/ 
/Oculus/Movies/ 

On a PC, your phone's storage can be accessed from Windows Explorer by simply plugging in the USB data/charging cable - no software is required. On a Mac, files can be transferred to your phone using Android File Transfer (https://www.android.com/filetransfer/), which is a free utility provided by Google.
