To provide our customers with a seamless hasslefree experience we recommend using the FREE VR PLAYER. It allows you to download and play any video on BaDoinkVR with a couple of taps. It's available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

2. Choose a video

We try to optimize our videos for every VR display available. All you have to do is choose the right one. Mobile users can choose from HQ (1080p 60fps) and LQ (1080p 30fps) videos. While HQ VR videos have higher quality, LQ have smaller file size, and will download more quickly. Choose the right one for you from the Download drop down menu.

3. Download a video to your phone

PLEASE NOTE: If you browse from your mobile device the video will be downloaded directly to the FREE VR PLAYER

If you browse BaDoinkVR using your PC, download the desired video to your computer. After the download is completed, upload the video to your phone.

  • - Android users should put the downloaded videos in the \Movies\Free VR\ folder.
  • - iOS users should upload the downloaded videos using iTunes, just like any other video file.

4. Start the video and insert a smartphone into a headest

Launch the FREE VR PLAYER and start the video. When playback has started insert the phone into your headset so it fits properly. Position the phone inside the headset so that you don't feel any discomfort watching the video.

5. Enjoy the experience
