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?

That's just the 1 min trailer - the full version is 17 minutes, guess where you can see that one 😉

Just saw this one using Oculus Video, awesome short film (it's probably on Vimeo page 8 or 9 now):

The Blair Stitch Project, awesome lol 😄 😄 😄

I haven't checked that out for a while. Jaunt used to be excellent too before they shut it down.

The competition this week is rather weak, so I'm thinking this one will be the winner, it's quite funny - but don't watch it here, watch it in Oculus Video  B)

 This app is free or paid. I mostly use printed checks whom I printed from Bank Checks Plus Coupons, because mostly store accept these checks thats why I am asking. 




The app is completely free. You can watch Vimeo videos (short films) or 360 degrees vids - and more (even watch your own movies if uploaded to the Windows Video folder).
