Video specs for best performance in Oculus Go

Claustro
Level 2
I am a video editor and we use the Oculus Go to showcase our 360 work to potential clients, however I've experienced that at times the video will jitter and the audio will either sound like is slowing down or fast forwarding.
I've exported some test videos, with high bit rate for best video quality and some with lower bit rate but both give the same result.
The current specs of the video are, AAC 320kbps, 48 KHz, Stereo
H. 264, Frame Rate 25, Progressive, Square pixel, Main profile, Level 5.1, Encoding VBR, 1 Pass, Mbps 100, VR video Monoscopic.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I've done as far as my knowledge allows me.

Thanks a bunch.

I've asked to team to see if we can provide some guidance.

100Mbps is awfully high, 

Bluray HD is 20 Mbps
DVD around 6 Mbps
Netflix 2 Mbps

Now Ultra HD (4k HDR) Bluray can hit 80/90Mbps, but that is using the H.265 codec (not sure if GO even supports it) and usually requires dedicated hardware acceleration.

The higher the bit rate the more stress there is on hardware.

Also, don't forget about the screen refresh rate of GO, it can run at 60hz or 75hz, for your video to look good it needs to have a frame rate that can be divisible, so if the player is running at 60hz for the display, you want your video to be 30fps, if the video player is utilising the 75hz mode you can use 25 frames a second video as it divides 3 times into 75

I would not go for Bitrate higher than about 40 Mbps.

Be kind to one another 🙂

Oculus Go can refresh up to 72Hz, which is a multiple of the popular film refresh rate (24Hz).

Hi! Did you ever come to a conclusion on the best video specs for the Oculus GO?
