Oculus Video and Viveport Video - great apps for watching short films

Just went through all games and apps last night. To my amazement I saw that one of my favorite apps had less than a 3/5 average rating based on about 1000 ratings:

Of course user experiences will vary and depend on expectations, and this app won't play all your own movies flawlessly, then again I don't think this app was ever intended to be good at that. 

Instead I find the Vimeo short film collection utterly amazing, and during the last year available films have been constantly updated. Watching short films (normal 2D, Vimeo) is the one thing I use in this app. Sure you can see some 360 degrees videos too, but the resolution is usually horrible (=very blurry) and I don't care for these videos. But sitting down in my own VR cinema watching awesome short films is beyond amazing - and there're more than 1000 to choose from (I think, the list simply goes on and on). 

Some of my favorites:



And I know we can't discuss politics in here, but I guess I'm allowed to show a movie available in Oculus Video that I like a lot  o:)  😉

 



Maybe this thread could be about short films you've seen in your Oculus Video VR cinema - did you see anything that maybe moved you more than a normal full length movie?

Agreed - just to mention it, but using Oculus Video or Viveport Video you're just streaming short films selected by Vimeo - so probably much similar to streaming from Amazon Prime. 

Viveport Video also has some 4K (music) videos for streaming. 

 

I also prefer watching films on a big TV, but I don't have a Vimeo short film player on the TV, it probably exists, still I love to watch these short films using VR. Also perfect for small cool-down-sessions between VR games, lol.

It's Friday and we spent all resources at work during the week, and now it's completely natural to feel like Leonard

See the whole 10 min short film on Viveport Video for free! The movie is 7.2 on IMDB.

Found out that I can use SteamVR res 500% with no problems at all with the RTX 3090 in Viveport Video - this is Index res 500%, but reduced to about 25% of the real res:

Hard to take VR images, have to angle the hmd in specific ways, and I forgot to do that - here I had a perfect image in the hmd, but it gets tilted and angled when taking shots. 

 

You really can't see the res 500% here, and the movie is probably only 1080p, still the image quality is amazing with the Index - and 144 fps are no problem (= 6 x 24 fps, 80 or 90 fps aren't really that good with 24p movies, but 120 Hz (5 x 24) and 144 (6 x 24) Hz are great). 

 

I would not be surprised, if a GTX 1080 can do res 300% in Viveport Video with no problems. 

 

Feels like I have my own cinema in VR, but I may have said that before - but this time it's true, lol
