Is there are easy way to watch Vr videos from Youtube on the Vive?

Cant seem to watch them. I've tried using Virtual desktop, but I just get a normal chrome screen no 360. I do have 3 monitors does this cause a problem? Odd I can watch them on the Samsung Gear VR but not on the Vive


Re: Youtube VR videos

Could you please post a link or a youtube search argument to one of the videos you are talking about? I'd like to see what you're talking about.

Have you had an opportunity to try Vive Video?  Here is the link where you can obtain it:


You may need to copy and paste the link into a new window, but installing this program should enable you to watch YouTube in the VR Environment.  Please let me know if you are able to try it out.  I look forward to hearing from you!

He sure talks about videos like this


Vive Video works very well for offline videos. But the without the possibility to browse and stream YouTube videos it is not helpfull.


Re: Youtube VR videos

I've used this to watch YouTube VR videos on the Vive. It requires you to use a keyboard and I have to restart it multiple times before it'll actually work but it's free.


I'm really hoping this feature gets added to Vive Video.
