    I know I can play games, but how about watching movies? Can I watch movies on my new HTC Vive, or on any of the VR devices?

    Yes! Here an article from our sister site Android Central that explains how to watch movies on the Gear VR...

    I would imagine the Vive, Oculus, etc are similar.

    I don't think the GearVR method for watching movies will work :-/ ...I thought GearVR had its own marketplace-type software for apps like Hulu and Netflix?

    On another note.. you may be able to use Virtual Desktop in VR which allows you to take control of your computer in VR and have a ..well... virtual desktop. The resolution for the small type is a little difficult to read but, never tried watching a movie 🙄

    I personally use AltSpace on my Vive and watch movies in the theater mode if I'm running solo. With friends we watch some netflix if we're in the mood. I have also tried watching movies using something like virtual desktop and have found that experience to be lacking. I feel like Alt Space gets it right.
