What you need
For Netflix to work properly with Google Cardboard, you’ll need access to a few things. First, you will need a Windows PC or laptop. Next, you will need a working Internet connection, as well as a phone and a headset. After that, all you have to do is download the Trinus VR app on both your phone and computer.
Trinus VR works like a mirror. Once set up, you will be able to open games or websites such as Netflix and then view them from your VR headset. While it may seem easy to just set up and watch movies in a virtual headset, it’s actually a lot easier than you’d expect.
How to set it up
The first thing you need to do is download and install Trinus VR on your PC. The installation process is extremely easy and shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes. Next, you need to download the Trinus VR app from the Google Play Store. After that, you’ll want to connect your phone to your computer.
While you won’t get the best connection with Wi-Fi, it’s most convenient to use in VR because it doesn’t require cords. If you’re using Wi-Fi, you’ll need to make sure your computer and phone are connected to the same network. You will then be prompted to enter the IP address that appears on your phone in a dialog box on your computer.
