Thanks,

@Synthesis,  I would have at a guess the movie, IT from the Stephen King novel.  I saw the video on youtube last week when I was keenly awaiting the arrival of my Vive.  Looked cool.

Hi @DarthKegRaider,

I imagine you're talking about this?

 

Getting Youtube to work on the Vive is still a bit clunky as they never released a 1st party viewing app. I imagine this will all be fixed within the next few months as webVR becomes live. There was an effective free solution called ytvrvive that was floating around last year but I can't find a proper download of it now. You can download the video from youtube and then play it back using Vive video which is another free option. You can also try whirlygig but it takes a bit to get used to the mixed keyboard/VR UX. 

 

The tried and true method of watching youtube in VR without fuss is to use Virutal Desktop but this is a paid solution. That said Virtual Desktop enables streoscopic viewing and is extremely handy in general.
