3D video player for Oculus Rift DK2

31st August 2014


How-to use

  1. Ensure 'Rift Display Mode' is set to 'Extend Desktop to the HMD' and is landscape
  2. Drag the viewer to the oculus screen and press F11 (full-screen mode)
  3. You can pause/play the video inside of the oculus with the space key


I am running the DK2 on a Mac. How do I do step 1 and 2?

@Stefan the DK2 is extended (acts as a secondary display) by default in Mac isn't it. Open the DK2 Viewer window on the rift screen and make it full screen (⌘-Shift-F). If you are using mirroring instead of extended display, you can just open the dk2 viewer fullscreen in the main screen and it will look correct when viewed in the rift.

@Alex The website is the application. If you wish, you could save the entire page (and contents) to a folder on your desktop and then open the website from there. In Chrome you can save using Ctrl+S. Note: Clicking the 'Open 3D SBS MP4' button does not upload anything - it just reads the MP4 file from your hdd and loads it into the DK2 Viewer.

@Dan Clicking the button loads a file of the dk2 lens so that it can be used during rendering. This file is a few meg so may take some time to load. Try clicking the button again after a minute or two. Note: this demo is only supported in Google Chrome at this point in time.

Hi! I set my DK2 to extended mode. I click on DK2 Viewer, press F11 for fullscreen, but nothing happens, my DK2 only shows my desktop, but not the 3D video from your website. What did I do wrong? Thanks.

@Szabby When clicking the DK2 Viewer button, a window will appear with the stereo rendering of the video. You need to drag that window to the oculus screen and then press F11 to make it fullscreen. You should be able to view it in the rift then.
