    You can live stream through Facebook to yourself, haven't tried it but they say there is a 10 sec delay.

    @digital00101 Only issue is the red dot in the screen while playing games...

    When I read your question I was curious myself, so I just tried mirroring the screen through ADB and it works. I tried it with Vysor, it streams in binocular but at least it's a stream. Worth checking out other methods using ADB seeing that it works.

    What is ADB?

    Oh cool! I can mirror my Mac to my 3D TV via Apple TV and view the stream in 3D. I'll buy Visor for a year to get the advanced features and see where I can take this. Thanks, FieldofVision!

    I bought the subscription and like it even better. The resolution on my Mac and stream to the 3D TV are really great; much sharper than the headset. Two problems though that I reported to the developer:
    1. The Go will not stay connected wirelessly. As soon as I unplug the cable it disconnects.
    2. The aspect ratio of the side by side image is incorrect for a 3D TV. Each image needs to be shrunk in half horizontally so that they are correct when expanded and overlaid on the full screen.
    Aside from that, it works great. Even provides copy and paste functionality.

    I'd actually like to know if you can stream a Rift game to the Go.  I play Fallout 4 VR and would like to stream the game to a Go for another onlooker so they can experience it while I play on my Rift.

    @FieldOfVision Thnx for the answer, only issue is that I can't find out how to connect my Oculus Go to Vysor...

    Being able to mirror to the Oculus phone app would be very handy too, even if just for helping people navigate with the headset on.

    I haven't tried this yet, but did you connect with ADB to the device IP address? To test this, get the device IP with 
    adb shell ip route
    Then connect wirelessly with
    adb tcpip 5555
    adb connect device_ip_address
    
    And you can check that you are wirelessly connected with
    adb devices

    ADB is a tool to interface with the Android paform, it's from the Android Patform Tools, part of the Android SDK. 

    @robinoculusnl ;
    You need to do a few things:
    - Set your Oculus Go into developer mode (you do this by clicking on the headset on the mobile app while it's connected).
    - Install the Android SDK on your computer.
    - Plug in your Oculus Go into your computer.
    - To check that the device in properly connected, run the command adb devices from within the Platform-tools folder that comes part of the Android SDK.

    There are some who have experienced issues with the ADB drivers and found better luck connecting with the Oculus ADB drivers afterwards.

    @FieldOfVision Thnx! Works with Vysor, and bought the Pro version. Only trying to figure out how to use the wireless connection.

    Thanks for the tip. Actually, it started working and I don’t even need to connect the cable at all but I’ll keep this in my back pocket just in case.

    Indeed, I just noticed that the Pro version of Vysor has a wireless functionality. Great!

    @G4MER-D3V1L I don't really think you can use the wireless mode on Vysor with Oculus Go.

    Wireless now works, woop! Needed to install Homebrew, and the adb driver. After that, just connect your Oculus IP to Vysor and it will stream with almost no delay.

    I just kept trying to enter my the ip address in the settings dialog with the headset connected via USB. Eventually the correct connection showed up allowing me to select "view". After that, it worked consistently.

    @G4MER-D3V1L You can use the MoonPlayer app on the Oculus Go, that will say the IP. On your Mac, install this. After that, follow all these steps in the Terminal.

    @robinoculusnl thanks for all the help I got it to work and it has not lag at all on my PC. When I used the vysor app on my chromebook it has alot of latency but it works so I'm good to go.

    Thanks for the info, everybody. I've got Vysor Pro on my Mac, mirroring what's on my Oculus Go, when wired as well as wireless.  It'd be great if we could one day disable the "binocular" view, and just have it display like a regular screen...
