VMS Player: Download the VMS Player to get the highest resolution, best head tracking, fastest responses, accurate colors, highest contrast, and smallest downloads. It requires an Oculus CV1 headset plus a good GPU card such as Nvidia 1070, 1080 or 980ti.
To use this format, download the VMS player here follow the instructions to install the player, and then download the recording in VMS format.
Once the player is installed and the recording is downloaded, click on the OpenRecording tab and select the downloaded recording. This is a beta version of the player. If you have any issues, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. The player may ask you about disabling the Oculus 'spud' in order to correct the black level problems in the Oculus software - see the discussion here.
Support for other HMDs: We are currently developing support for the HTC Vive as well as providing a version that will work with the old Oculus devKits.
MP4: We will be posting an MP4 version that can be used if you don't have a system adequate to run the VMS player. It will contain the recording in the stereoscopic panoramic 4K format as used by the Firefox/MozillaVR and other VR players.
