How to watch 3d on YouTube

I just purchased the Oculus Rift.  I searched the web and tried to find a thread on this forum and everything I try does not work.

Can I watch YouTube videos that are split screen 3D?  Several websites tell you to download the DEO VR ap then copy pasted the URL in the clipboard but the clipboard does not exist in DEO anymore. Every search result I find is a year or more old. I can only guess something has changed and the options are no longer available. Can someone help?

    Virtual Desktop or Bigscreen. I just tried a SBS 3D youtube in Bigscreen and worked nicely. You do have to manually enable the 3D.

    That one I have not tried yet. Is that YouTube 360 or 3D?

    SBS 3D. I don't think you are going to get their 360 working in Bigscreen, maybe Virtual desktop but the resolution in most 360 videos is unbearable to me. 180, like they film the VR porn seems to me to be the sweet spot as far as resolution.  There is a lot of free SBS 3D on Youtube that you can view but as far as their 360, I think we will need an app from them to get full support.

    Try Skybox VR Video Player... They added youtube support recently.

    There's a youtube player on Steam that might help - still Early Access and the reviews are pretty negative, but I tried it briefly and it works ok
