Vive Video provides an immersive, cinematic viewing experience for standard, 3D, 180˚and 360˚ videos in VR. Its simple interface and intuitive controls were designed by HTC’s Creative Labs team to work seamlessly with the Vive system. Vive Video supports monoscopic, 3D side-by-side stereoscopic and over-under stereoscopic video modes and flat screen, 180 and 360 screen modes. In addition to standard playback controls, once you’ve selected a video, you can resize the screen, orient it to your gaze, and even turn off the ambient lighting.
