- Select a video to play. If it's a local video it must be present on both devices.

- On one of the devices, start the video by pressing the play button. After a small delay, the movie will start playing synchronized on both devices. 

Seeking and network play is supported!

Feature suggestions and bug reports are always welcome!

Permission usage:

NFC, WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE : Used by the Cardboard SDK to set up and save your headset configuration.

ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Used for finding the IP of your device and displaying it in the Sync settings, to help set up synchronized play with another device. 

INTERNET, READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Required for accessing media on the device and for streaming.

    Almost perfect but it needs a setting to turn off the tap the screen to calibrate feature, the daydream and a few other headsets have soft buttons in them that rest on the screen and register as a tap every so often, it's constantly re centering the video when I try to look around.

    This one the most reliable VR player. The codec are up to date. Good file browser. Playing all 4K video on 24 FPS. With Samsung A70. Could use a non VR UI like Var VR app

  3. Abhijith Gopan-avatar

    A great app. Honestly the best VR media player I have used. I highly recommend purchasing this app because it is much more refined and feature packed as opposed to most of its competitors. I would like to highlight some of the issues I faced and it would be great if these were rectified. 1. The resume playback function doesn't work consistently. I did not have this issue with the free version, but somehow this is frequently happening with the paid version. 2. Once I exit the app after a session, the phone fails to completely come out of DnD mode. A lot of the notifications are still muted and there are DnD glitches visible in the sound settings occasionally. The only way to fix this so far is to restart the phone. I am using a Galaxy Note 8.

    I had been using the free version, and decided to "upgrade." While the lack of ads is nice, the almost constant crashing with certain videos is beyond aggravating. I notice there hasnt been an updaye in some time. PLEASE release a stability fix as this is currently the most crash prone media app Ive ever used (and Im including the windows 3.1 and 95 days in that roundup)

    The newest update has rendered this app useless on huawei mate 9. No matter which combination of video settings I use, it is only a black screen. Audio works fine. Not sure why you'd change the video playback in a way that would render it useless. Regret paying for this app now. Hopefully an update fixes this and I will change my rating if it becomes usable again EDIT: App is fully functional again, thank you for the speedy update. Rating has been changed to correctly assess this app. 5/5

    This is Best App i've tried for watching 180° 3D Videos ! I've tried all the other VR Video Player apps on Google Play and this one is the BEST ! It's much better than VaR's VR Pro Video Player with a Ton of Features that VaR's does not have and other VR players on the Store. I'm using an old Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and pretty much everything plays perfectly. There is some minor stutter here and there on some videos, but this is probably due to very high resolutions and data rates of some of the videos that my phone can't handle. Anyways, Highly Recommended and i hope the author continues updating this awesome app ! 5 Out of 5 Stars from me :)

    When the app is set to open in vr mode, the vr UI menu does not show. Renders this option useless, which is a shame because it's one of the most important features this app could have. Otherwise good. Haven't had any format issues yet. Dark mode would be great. Hoping for updates so I can recommend this to the VR community and raise my rating.

    Wish 2d videos could be made bigger instead of just a standard screen size. But other than that I like this player. Best I've found so far

  9. justposted-avatar



    Excellent for viewing 2D and 3D video files. I trawled the store trying to find one that would let me watch 2D videos through my 3d goggles and also played sound on a particular file that several others weren't able to (they were just silent) - only VLC and VRTV played it successfully. Controls and settings all good and allows a plain black background, which is all I ever want as I find the environments distracting.

  10. Nick Eastwood-avatar

    Nick Eastwood


    Not sure why but when I try and change the settings in the headset profile, they don't save, making videos /content impossible to watch properly

  11. Greg Ko-avatar

    Used to be the best vr theater app available but it's been self exiting play back within a few minutes of starting a new video for months now which renders it completely useless. I've had to go back to using other apps which is a pity since this was a better choice before it bugged out. It has been months but I'll keep it on my phone and hope for an update somewhere down the line since I paid for it...

  12. myxnick-avatar



    29 sept update fixed the black screen issue. but sometimes app fail to start. black screen upon starting. by the way, please make the menu button totally hidden when we hid it. the square button that replaces control menu destroy my vr experience, esp when i position the menu right in front of my face... also, latest update no longer have options to hide screen divider, exit and setting icon in 3d view. edit: now i keep getting black screen when i try to open setting

    The settings on headset-setup on lense-distance won't save. It always goes back to its original numbers. I need refund.

  15. Joe-avatar



    This is a flexible app that allows repositioning of camera for watching movies and screen locking. Opportunities for improvement: 1. It seems animated GIFs are not supported at least on Android 10. 2. From a usability perspective, when selecting screen, video type, and projection type before watching a video, it would be half the phone presses if all options were available on buttons instead of having to first press to open each dropdown menu.

    After using this player for quite a while here's my review. This app is good it plays most videos most of the time. The floating ui when playing videos is good. The only problem I've noticed is that some videos labeled 2160P, 8000k don't play properly. While they work fine in vlc. I hope the developer fixes it with time. My phone is honor play (kirin 970) running android pie.

    *** UPDATE *** Windows 10 Media sharing is total trash. I now use Kodi, and have 100% success rate viewing files. A couple issues still prevent a 5/5 rating though: 1) The app forgets what folder / file I'm on, so clicking "Next button" (occasionally, not usually) doesn't work and I have to exit, re-pick my data source, and locate my folder again. Pretty minor, but still. 2) When streaming RTP, in 2D mode it receives my stream perfectly (I'm streaming a desktop which is a SBS VR image from either Insta360 Evo player or from Premiere Pro). I once had it working in 3D mode, totally randomly but it seems very buggy. *** END UPDATE, rest is old review*** Provisional 3-star rating because: 1) the actual player is great with a very basic VR setup (gaze controls). 2) I've been able to access Windows shared files BUT 3) What hasn't worked yet is accessing Windows 10 files shared through Media Streaming. I get all the folders listed, but no files appear. Has anyone achieved this, ever? If I can get that working, then I will happily change my vote to 5-stars.

    Most of the videos I play end up severly pixelated, choppy, or freeze completely; then the app will freeze half the time, and that's even with quite a few lower quality vr vids. My phone can handle the videos too (I have a galaxy s8+) because it can view most high quality VR videos on Deovr just fine, I was just looking to be abke to view a couole of file types that Deovr can't. It makes videos completely unwatchable. I regret not trying the free version first.

    Paid for this app but it doesn't work anymore on Pixel2 since a couple of weeks ago. Just closes as soon as I click on any network folder. Reply to developer: it still does not work (v3.5.1)when i try to access a network file. Just closes as soon as i click on the network folder. I updated to 3 stars though because i appreciate you trying to resolve the issue!

    Guys this is the actual vr app, u are looking for..... Just buy an economical vr box and this app will make it worth.... It actually gives you the taste of high end vr boxes like oculus....my experience has been great, because it has all sorts of customisations, even subtitles support, screen lock is there. I m just holding back 1 star for no cinema hall virtual background, kindly add a cinema hall and some other environments vr team. You will Rock!!!

    It was the best VR player when I was using Note 4. Since upgrade to Note 9, it become average. It's back to being the best. Could benefit from slower and faster playback options. I went through most good vr players, paid and free but the competition is nowhere near the vrtv player

  23. Wizard ZoSo-avatar

    Wizard ZoSo


    So far this is by far my favorite app but it would be nice to have other Theater environments, for a better Cinema experience as well as other environments. Because i can program my remote and the ease of functions using the eye or remote This app is superb in my opinion and I rate it 5 stars

    After upgrade to Android 9.0 it is not working well (Moto X4). In most videos, picture is disproportional, shifted to the left, right side is covered by large green part. Before the OS upgrade, everything was working fine (on Android 8.0).

  25. Piers Taylor-avatar

    Piers Taylor


    Good but doesn't seem to trigger vr mode properly anymore. I hadn't used it in a long time and was disappointed to find somewhere along the line that it no longer properly sets the screen into low persistence vr mode. This means motion blur is quite bad.

  26. Satnam Gill-avatar

    Satnam Gill


    The best vr media player on the app store ATM. But whenever the vr environment is on theater or on none, any video I play will back out in about 10 minutes. On the cave mode and the living room it works flawlessly without any hiccups.

  27. TW V-avatar

    Was amazing till the update broke it. Anytime you put in a stream url it autocloses instantly with any type of file format I have tried. There's nothing else out here that worked as good as it used to.

    Good vr player, support all 3d vr and normal 2d mode too. One hiccup, it still can't handle samba share seamlessly. Sometimes it works just fine, other times it's not. Using android 9 over miui 11 here. Local player work perfectly. Hope it fixed soon.

  29. spades3647-avatar



    It used to be the best but right now it doesn't resume the saved settings anymore during VR mode and also when you try to resize the screen in VR mode, the movie becomes distorted.

    One of the best app for watching VR 180° & 360° videos in real 3d subject to video quality. thanks to the creator of the app. Highly recommended for those who knows the curiosity of virtual reality.

    Best VR video player available. The VR UI for navigation works really well. Latest update broke video type/shape/format auto detection from file names in some situations. Especially when skipping to next or previous videos. But sure it will be fixed soon

    Headset profile does preserve any changes made and does not seem to have any impact on a picture. Is there any additional setting to enable headset profile manipulation or is this functionality basically does not work?

    Loved the app but I tried installing some codecs to see if I could get some video's I was having problems with working now the app won't play any video in VR mode and removing the codec library doesn't seem to do anything. Edit: I tried your suggesting but it didn't help. Then I tried out the cardboard app and it did the same as well as every other VR app, so I had to do a factory reset. I just got a new phone so I probably installed something wrong. It's working again but I have a problem with the settings for Inter-lense distance won't save even after changing them.

    Used to be great, now CIFS/SMB browsing doesn't work as it should. Can't traverse up a level, can't traverse soft links, can't view any shares, just your user's home folder. Basically useless at that point.

  65. Daniel Hoffman-avatar

    Daniel Hoffman


    I like it, pretty good for what it is. My only wish would be the ability to make the 2D screen as big as you want, I imagine it might "clip" through the floor or walls or something if that was an option. Maybe a blank setting where you can just enlarge it as big as you want? Or even better a starscape or something. 4/5 would be 5/5 if I was able to mess around a bit more with the size. Seems like you can get really big in 180 mode and changing FOV but it pinches the edges oddly. Oh also whenever I set the inter lens distance or screen to lens distance or vertical distance it always resets instantly. Am I doing something wrong?

  66. Creature Ofthenight-avatar

    Creature Ofthenight


    It's the best so far in my opinion. It would be perfect for me only it's just this one thing that I can't figure out is when I play a certain video which doesn't fit the screen it left out the green screen/background screen. It messing up the player when I switch to 180/360 mode. Not much in SBS type, but on Over/Under almost half of the screen is green. When I reset view, on my right is the green screen and on my left is the actual video. Is there any settings I could change to fix this in app? I can't find the solution on my own.

  67. Hafiz-avatar



    Great app. Probably the best on the market. By the way, please add option to change position of media browser and menu in 180-360 views. It is really hard to tilt my head down just to use those controls.

    Really nice app, and is actively developed unlike others out there. It would be nice if you could sort the files in date order. That way the newest files would be at the top/bottom. At the moment they can only be sorted in name order. Keep up the good work!

    I'm using this on Samsung s8 and it has crashed 13 times in 2 days. When i get it going it is great for watching stuff over a network as I have a drive attached to my router through usb 3, the only thing is there is major lag on any files over 4gb. The hud is fantastic and the ability to change so many settings is genius, I can connect my Bluetooth controller and even change settings on that. Thanks to the developers for this great app and hope you will be able to fix the lag and the crashing on the next update.

    The most recent update made the controller stop being able to go to next and previous screen type and video type. I can map buttons but they do nothing while watching the video!

    Hello, I find this app one of the best, but what I find lacking is an option for buffer videos. I use a network streamer over 5ghz but still it is not enough. Add video buffering option and I will give it 5 stars.

    If you could add in an option to have it not stretch out images on the flat screen when using 3d side-by-side, and instead have it just be half of the original width, that'd be great - all of my stereograms are being stretched out

    After latest update, Daydream view is horizontally misaligned. Trying to tweak settings of lens distance, etc. does not work as it does not save. Looking forward to a fix.

    Accelerometer is misaligned by 90°. When the viewpoint is set to center at the horizon, looking slightly downwards will flip the screen as if I am looking straight down and looking sideways doesn't really work. If I were to reset the view while looking straight upwards it fuctions as if aligned with the horizon. This is obviously not ideal. A fix to make the app usable again would be appreciated. (Using Huawei P9 Lite on latest available update 7.0)

    Unusable after update. 😥. Now required to use daydream app. Opening VRTV brings up file browser with no way to navigate. Can't externally select a file and choose to play with VRTV anymore. Very 😥 sad.

  92. Smurfinz-avatar



    My vrtv cant play HEVC and wmv video files, how do I install the codec via 'Install codec library' ?? Since hevc is common nowadays it would be great if it's included, why don't you include as many codecs as possible like mxplayer did ? whatever file I throw in, mxplayer never fails any format.

    This was the best app for VR 180+! Unfortunatelly after updrading my phone to Samsung S8 it's not usable any more...:( Screen darkens and starts blinking like with low refresh rates when playing... Please, please fix the screen darkening on S8, I want to use my favourite app again!

    Apparently VRTV can no longer play files that are launched from a file viewer, but they run perfectly when opened from within the app. Hands down the best VR video player, the game pad support and customization options take this far beyond what anything else is offering.

    Update 7/9/17: After updating, it's working quite well again. No issues with UI so far and streaming works well. Still wish it had the option for the old gaze controls, but the controller implementation isn't terrible except when in the file browser it doesn't show the cursor "laser." Previous review: Was a perfect video viewing app until the recent update. Previously, large streams worked seamlessly and gaze-based interactions worked perfectly fine. Now it forces you into Daydream mode regardless of NFC being on, which I do not want at all and don't see an option to turn off. The UI once you're in this mode get's pretty buggy, with the play controls being crooked and sometimes re-rendering into strange positions. Worst of all the previously smooth streams are now choppy and unwatchable. Please revert and I will update to 5 stars as it once was.

    Edit: On second thought this isn't the best way to report failures. The app has historically worked great and the play store's lack of archives is hardly the developer's fault. When it worked it was the best. Recent updates over the past month seems to have degraded the quality. It fails to play all media from usb on my Nexus 5x. Will update as bugfixes roll in. Would be nice if I could install older versions.

    Great performance and an incredible array of controls for everything you could want... but not for brightness? Lol Cool for people who like dim, washed out video, I guess. EDIT: It's actually fine if I uncheck the 'VR' box. But that's not useful for my purposes. EDIT: With auto-brightness off and manual brightness at 100% it's still heavily limited by the app.

    Good dev job. All I'd say if u could, add support for use of the daydream controller? And maybe some instructions? I can play and watch vids fine, just curious as to what all the other stuff does (I don't want to break what already works). Thanks for your work, great app

    You ruined my favourite VR player. Now I am stuck with a big white x top left and a line in the middle. The options to hide these do not work. But worst of all is the drift. Since updating recently I am having to reset alignment every 30 seconds. My gyroscope is calibrated perfectly but the screen is constantly drifting. I wish I could go back to an earlier version because you have made it useless...... edit to reply: I have tried every type of headset tracking. None show an improvement. I see there was an update recently but the hide settings and hide exit still do nothing when ticked.

    This app is pretty much the best for VR viewing. All it really needs is brightness control. I watched a 3 hour movie the other day and my eyes were extremely tired after because I was too lazy to change the brightness. Also on my device subtitle support is not working, which is weird because I remember it previously working.

    This is a fantastic app. I tried a number of similar apps with my Daydream headset, and this had most of the things I was looking for. Would still love portrait orientation option, but overall very well done. This will now be my go to.

  118. Anders McCormack-avatar

    Anders McCormack


    I really hope daydream support is developed for this, but even if it wasn't it's still a good app. The only problem is that when using daydream, the mounts that touch the screen trigger the re-centre input. Is there a way to lock the centre point once you set it? so it doesn't get triggered by placing the phone in the goggles.

  119. Trev Frost-avatar

    Quite simply there isnt a better VR video app. I've tried them all and this has been the best by far. I really love that recentering the image is done with a single tap. Great app

    Works perfectly fine, however my one big complaint is if you're looping the same short animation, it does not loop smoothly. Player freezes up momentarily on the loop restart

    Best 3D video player out there. My only question is how it determines the default setting for a video (ie.Screen=flat/dome/sphere or Video Type=3D SBS vs 3D OU). When I open different files they seem to have these video settings initially set randomly. Is there some sort of file naming convention that can be used so that the videos start up correctly, without having to change them each time?

  126. Christian Widargo-avatar

    Best player for VR enviroment. You can use it as external player for Web browser too. For developer, can you please add Static View mode (without gyro) VR for 2D movie and Subtitle support for network/lan file?

    Great app, nearly perfect. The video can be launched from network drive via Es file manager (all some other similar app, not tested except ES file manager.) However, how do I use Vr interface to browser files? Have to take the phone out every time when a video finished as it go back to normal non-vr display. Can someone shed some lights on this?

    Best VR player in market, that's for sure, so it deserves 5-stars, but i'm still missing some important features: 1. FOV settings 2. LAN browser 3. OTG support 4. Recognition of the VR format according to the correct naming of file
