Instructions

1. Setup the HTC Vive Environment

Make sure your PC is compatible with the HTC Vive. You can find a list of recommended specs here. Download the install package from vive.com/setup and go through the installation wizard. The install package will automatically detect and configure all the equipment.

2. Download and install a VR video player compatible with the Vive system

You can use a VR video player compatible with Vive of your choice. We recommend the following:

  • 1. DeoVR - is a straight-forward, high performance video player for 2D, 3D, flat, 180°and 360° videos.
  • 2. Autoplay VR - AutoplayVR is a smart VR video player all on autopilot. Sit back, relax and enjoy the flight!

3. Download a video to your PC

We try to optimize our videos for every display available, all you have to do is select the right one. HTC Vive users should select the Vive / Oculus HQ - 60fps.

4. Use the VR video player to play the video

PLEASE NOTE: Please refer to the player's documentation.
