mpo file supprt
Can the Oculus Gallery have support for MPO (Multi Picture Object File) files? This format is for 3D photo files and was supported by Nintendo and Fuji amongst others.

Agreed - If Oculus wants to appeal to the 30s-50s age group and all the seasoned 3D enthusiasts within it, then probably the number 1 thing they can do is have their basic picture viewer open an MPO file.
After buying my Oculus, that was the first thing I looked for. Cast yourself back one decade to the era of 3D cameras, 3D TVs, 3D game systems, and VR headsets that you stuck your phone in - the MPO was the staple 3D photo format. I have thousands of MPO pictures I'd love to view again, and I imagine there's a huge crowd out there who'd buy an Oculus just for that very purpose.

I have a 3D lens for my Lumix camera and can take mpo pictures. I was actually surprised that the OQ web browser doesn't display them properly, this seemed a reasonable thing to do, it simply shows one of the images, so it might as well be a jpg viewer :-(
I couldn't find a way to get the OQ we browser to download images either, I had hoped I could save the mpo files to local media trhat way.
half an hour later and I figured out how to copy the mpo files to the OQ over a usb cable.
and the OQ gallery app was useless, either gave me a bunch of thumbnails or left me in a dark cave!

Absolutely need an .mpo viewer...many people will buy an Oculus just for this feature!

Shame this wasn't a higher priority. Lots of mpo files with no viewer. Do we really have to sideload an app to to get this simple viewer?
agreed, 1000s of MPO format and need a simple viewer, please
