After downloaded movies, and installed applications on your smartphone, now you need to copy the movie from your computer to smartphone, to do this, your smartphone need to be connected to the computer via USB cable, open "My computer" and you will see the new device icon, copy movie clip to your Android phone.
If you have a smart phone does not have enough space, and 3D movies are very heavy, you can burn your movie to a USB flash drive, and then connect it to your phone as an external drive via OTG cable! Or add memory to the phone set its microSD memory card (if your phone has a microSD memory card slot).

2. Through iPhone
For iOS users, Homido Player is the app of choice. It's meant to go with their own VR headset but you can use the app with any headset you have. To add your video to the app's player, download it and then connect your phone to your computer.
Open iTunes and select your device. Under your device's content options, click Apps and scroll down in the pane on the right. You'll see a list of all installed apps and a separate list of apps that you can add files to. Select Homido Player here and scroll down until you see the 'Add File' button. Click it, navigate to your file and select it, and then wait for it to be added to your device. You do not need to sync your phone to iTunes.
Once you've set the movie to play, just insert your phone into the headset and enjoy. Make sure you turn the 360 degree option off and switch to the 'flat' option. SBS should be kept Off if you need the app to split your movie into two windows, and 'On' if you don't need to split the movie. Here's what it looks like in the Homido player.
If you've got a movie that's already split into two windows, just play it using VLC player.
All that's left, now that you've got the movie and the app to play it, is to insert it into your headset and enjoy. Granted, this isn't a family experience. It's just you sitting alone with the headset strapped to your head watching a movie but it does the trick for individual needs well enough. You might experience problems with video format so just make sure the format your converted movie is in is compatible with the movie player i.e., the app you're going to use to play it.
