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

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!

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.

Sorry man, do you know any other sites where I can download VR videos? I have checked YouTube, I download the so called YouTube video with this YouTube downloader as you can see "http://www.videoconverterfactory.com/tips/vdgb-yt-downloader.html" . I transfer it to my VR player while it does not work at all. Are there any codec errors or incompatibility between YouTube VR video and my device?

Did you use GOM Player? You can play 360 videos directly from YouTube, without bothering to download them via GOM Player. Simply right-click anywhere on the screen, go to 360-degree VR video play(F6), and then click Playback 360-degree VR video to load a list 360-degree videos available on YouTube. Finally, choose one desired 360 video VR to play.

This is an ancient thread - since this was posted, Youtube has released a SteamVR native YoutubeVR desktop client.
