I'm trying to figure out how to play large videos on android. Specifically large VR videos around the 10gb range. 

Ive tried trimming the into smaller chunks, but any of my video players still say unrecognized format even though the videos are a .mp4 

I have been able to play other videos at the same resolution (5k), but they have been shorter/smaller video files.

I was just wondering if anyone else has found a solution to this problem.

- Thanks!

You can use something like handbrake to convert them to the smaller format.

This site claims to have the optimal settings for Samsung Gear VR. If you are using a less powerful phone you might want to go down to 1080p.

Hope that helps.
