We’re sad to announce that Vrideo is shutting down as of today.  We’re incredibly proud of what our team has achieved since launching our platform in beta in March 2015

    Wow, that's sad, hate to see anyone have to shut up shop. I guess it's getting a tough world out there. Hope everyone in the team manages to quickly move on to new ventures.

    it also highlights, why we need offline solutions. the oculus home always online demand is as scary and subject to shutdowns too

    Yeah, that's a shame, there were a few great vids on there and the ability to download rather than stream was a real boon when streaming speeds were less than stellar.

    I guess we'll eventually end up with a dominant streaming app... but until then, we have a number of apps competing for a pretty small market

    It's kind of a shame, but I never got it to work properly. I ended up with a choice of low-res that sustained a decent frame rate, or high-res that stuttered like hell. The 'download' option never worked.

    Why not just sell it to keep it going?
    Probably because there are competitors with a slightly better working product? I'm not discounting the value of VRIDEO, I liked them. But for someone else to buy it, there has to be a niche. I'm not exactly what their niche was, other than maybe the option to Save a file locally. But that's not really a competitive edge.

    That's too bad...I also enjoyed Vrideo. Having the option to download a video before I watched it had really helped me out, before I upgraded my internet speed.

    Hopefully their team can come up with something else in the future.

    now the question is - if a 2M app developer cant make it on GearVR, are there examples who can?

    YouTube already has a 360/VR channel that anyone can watch with any HMD. JAUNT is still around as well, along with Oculus 360 Video.

    Anybody figure out where the videos that were downloaded are saved to? I tried looking in Oculus folder the other night, but couldn't find them.

    @AQfumes, thanks to @Mascaren who found the movie file location (see https://forums.oculus.com/community/discussion/35744/vrideo-where-to-put-my-own-videos ). The videos I downloaded are still there.

    They're packed up as zip files but unfortunately I think that may be a false extension as they won't open. Renaming them to any other kind of archive or giving them any movie extension doesn't work either !

    I was wondering what the hell happened to it. I liked and sorry they didn't make it.
