Vive Video provides an immersive, cinematic viewing experience for standard, 3D, 180˚and 360˚ videos in VR. Its simple interface and intuitive controls were designed by HTC’s Creative Labs team to work seamlessly with the Vive system, Oculus Touch and Xbox One controllers. Vive Video supports monoscopic, 3D side-by-side stereoscopic and over-under stereoscopic video modes and flat screen, 180 and 360 screen modes. In addition to standard playback controls, once you’ve selected a video, you can resize the screen, orient it to your gaze, and even turn off the ambient lighting. Haven’t had a chance to check out 360˚video yet? Now you can! Your Vive Video download includes a sneak peek of the INVASION! 360 - VR video from Baobab Studios.

Vive Video reviews and comments

Very good Approach, works really great. Would Be perfect if you could also include Webstreams such as Youtube, or a Video Player like VLC, which then plays the 360 ° Videos.

Hello my question is that I can not see the videos that I have stored on my computer or maybe I prodrian help as I can see my videos that I have on my computer thank you very much

Works great! Easy to use and loads very fast. Only sad thing is that you cant deactivate chaperone, and since my couch and bed is out of the area, its pretty annoying if I want to watch some videos.

Room with very good sound, well designed and a great immersion, although the controls are very far away and my acute myopia is very difficult to navigate through folders and configurations. I will continue to use Virtual Desktop.

Definitely take a look! When you make 360 ° Videos (like the contained Dunkirk VR Experience), you can get weird in Motion. Also Plays MKV Videos on the big Screen and even Side-by-side/top bottom MK3D!

A very well thought-out and simple Video Player, which seems to cope with all Formats. Flat, 180 °, 360 °, picture splitted or not, you can choose everything to make it look correct. And for free! Thank you HTC!

It's nice that there's a free Player like this. He is more performant, nicer and much better to use than Whirlborder. What's missing: Option to Turn Off the Video image on the private sphere monitor. Option to Swap the left and right Eye for 3D videos.

Best Tool to play downloaded VR 360/180 Degrees 2D/3D Viedeos. For Normal Films, the VR Resolution is too gradual, because you can watch it on a huge Viritual Screen, if you want to. What I still lack would be a Youtube Plugin to access the VR Viedeos available there directly.

I'd like it to work because it's beautiful, but it's bugged. By accessing the file Explorer, the pointer no longer responds after a while and no longer means to do anything. Damage! ---This looks really good, but it's bugged. I could play the demo video without any problem, but once I tried to browse the file Explorer, the pointer stopped responding, and now I can't do anything.

Its ok, but i have a problem. Normally i use the htc vive in stand up position and when i use the vive video the menu screen its at my backwards and not in front of me, so i have to calibrate the room everytime i wnat to use vive video to put the screen in front of me. I saw games where you can change the position of the screen with a button, it would be a great for vive video. In videos with up ti 10gb the video dont goes fluid
