How Do the VR Headsets Work with the YouTube App

Post by Mr. Mike » Wed May 01, 2019 7:45 pm

I have not been on any of these VR headsets yet, but was wondering how they work with YT, since most of our videos on here come from YT.
I'm guessing if it's not shot in 360 there's not a whole lot you can do. But do the regular videos become large and immersive? Can you zoom in a lot closer in the church, meetings, classrooms videos we currently have?

Can't wait till the Shopping Channels start shooting in 360 or VR

Well, as you said if it's not shot in 360 (or 180) there is not much they can do. But for sure it's a more immersive experience, since the video is "closer" to your eyes.
Don't know about zooming, because I haven't tried myself really :)

The only "VR" headsets I've worked with myself are those that are essentially a mobile phone strapped to your head. So the video is just that much closer to you. (I use a 32" TV as my PC monitor; it's a more pleasurable effect!)

Unfortunately I don't think it'll ever yield any zoom/clarity advantages. I think we've all been dreaming of that day.

Well....depends what devices are you talking about. The samsung VR Gear gives exceptional results in terms of immersion. Obviously, zoom isn't there...but the result it surely WAY more immersive than a PC Screen.

No. The degree with which you can zoom in without the picture becoming a meaningless jumble of colored squares is strictly a matter of how much data is in the video file, and no playing device will ever add any data to what's already there.

If you're hoping for something like the "enhance" feature you see in CSI, sorry but that's pure Hollywood fiction, and not only is it beyond any present technological capabilities, it's fundamentally impossible.
Uh, OK, what should I write here...
Sweet and to the point:
My strong preference is for seated, both-feet shoeplay. Dangling, and shoeplay with open-toed shoes or mules, I'm afraid don't do as much for me.

I have the Playstation VR and it has access to all YouTube VR or 360 videos. I recommend using it with the PS4 Pro, don’t use it with the regular PS4. The VR with the PS4 Pro has outstanding resolution.
