360 video resolution (Gear VR)

Hi there,

Just wondering what are the resolution limits for rendering 360 video on the Gear VR. I have some video recorded in 5.7k resolution, which is quite high.

Is it possible to play this back in the Gear VR? or do I need to down sample to a lower resolution. If so, what is the highest resolution supported?


have you tried and see what happens yet have you added texture maps to a sphere turn the maps inside out then attached the video?

if you are saying when i attach the video to the sphere it is a static image when playing well try adding a video player onto the sphere!
