Can I distribute my VR application via my website instead of Steam or ...

There used to be EULA which stated that it has to go through Steam. But I can't find it anymore. What are the restrictions of distributing applications with HTC Vive support?

I think you can as i have played a few games that are not on Steam or Viveport. 
WeareVR have games that i dont see anywhere else so i guess its possible. 
As for the Eula not sure where you will find that. 
Speak to @Rockjaw about the community or using viveport

Hi @dubik, I'm not sure what EULA you might be referring to, let me know if you track down that source.

 

As far as I know, you're free to distribute wherever and however you like, according to the terms of whatever engine you may have used - or not used, as the case may be. It's your creation.

 

Obviously, distribution services like Viveport and Steam offer a heck of a lot of convenience for developers, but we're not the only solution. Smiley Happy

Definitely yes.

It  depends on the engine manufacturer, as described
