VR FAQ

1 year ago

by: brett

With the launch of Pornhub's new Virtual Reality category, we thought it best to offer you some help and guidance as you navigate through these exciting new waters. Take a look at the FAQ below, and enjoy the ride.



Virtual Reality FAQ


What is VR (Virtual Reality)?


Virtual Reality is an immersive video experience. Ever watched a movie in 3D? It’s like that...only better. VR is a three-dimensional, computer generated environment which can be explored and sometimes interacted with. Watch a VR video or play a VR game and you’re more than a mere observer...you’re part of the action!


Do I need a VR headset to watch the videos?


All you need is a smartphone to experience motion tracking, a feature intrinsic to the VR experience. However, to experience full VR immersion with 3D, a headset such as Google Cardboard is required.



Where can I get a VR headset?


You can purchase Google Cardboard, the most affordable headset, directly from Google or Amazon.com. Google Cardboard is a low-cost virtual reality device that allows anyone the ability to experience VR using a smartphone.

More high-end models are also available online and in stores near you, such as:
Oculus Rift
Samsung Gear VR
HTC Vive



NEW! PLAYSTATION VR


Can I watch VR videos on Sony's VR browser?


No, you will need to download the VR videos first from Pornhub on a web browser and load the videos on a usb to play on Sony's VR media player.



How do I play downloaded VR videos on Playstation's VR player?


Find any video on http:/www.pornhub.com/vr.
Go to the VR tab and click download VR video.
Prepare a USB transfer key formatted in FAT32 or exFat (details can be found on Sony® website) and copy the downloaded VR files inside a folder on the device.
On the PS4, open the PS4 Media Player Application (Make sure your PS4 Media player has been updated to v2.50 or higher).
Power on the PSVR headset, then hold the Controller “Option” button and select “VR Mode” from the menu and enable it.

*Important Note*
Currently Sony only support video resolutions 1080p and lower.
Note that Sony Media Player with VR enabled displays video’s as “2D 360”, thus most videos will display two images split horizontally or vertically depending on the video file source.



MOBILE & GOOGLE CARDBOARD


Can I watch VR videos on mobile web?


Yes. On your Android phone you can just navigate to a Pornhub video on our VR category using the Android Chrome Browser. However, we recommend a Google Cardboard device for a full immersive experience. On iOS, we also have a fully immersive player right in the Safari or Chrome browsers



How do I use my Google Cardboard headset on my Android device?


Open the Android Chrome browser and navigate to a VR video.
Press play on the video page and then the Cardboard icon in the bottom right of the video player.
Follow the on-screen instructions selecting your device.
Load your phone in your Cardboard device and enjoy the show.



Alternatively, you can use the official Pornhub Android app:
The official Pornhub Android app supports Cardboard on all videos.
Simply navigate to a VR video in the VR category and press the Cardboard icon.
Download the official Pornhub Android app. Make sure you visit that link on your Android phone.



NEW! How do I use my Google Cardboard headset on my iOS/Apple device?


We no longer require a third party app.
Open Safari or Chrome browsers and navigate to a VR video.
Press play on the video page and then the Cardboard icon in the bottom right of the video player.
Follow the on-screen instructions selecting your device.
Load your phone in your Cardboard device and enjoy the show.



OCULUS RIFT


How do I watch VR videos on my Oculus Rift?


Download and install the free Pornhub VR Player (powered by BaDoinkVR) on your PC.
Navigate to any VR video and click the download VR video button under the video.
Drag the downloaded video into the VR Player. Put on your headset and begin watching. If the video does not display properly, cycle through the modes by pressing 1, 2, 3, or 4 on your keyboard.
Read more detailed instructions on how to use the Oculus Player.



SAMSUNG GEAR VR


How do I watch VR videos on my Samsung Gear VR?



Download the Samsung VR app from Oculus mobile app store on your Samsung phone.
Once Samsung VR is installed, navigate to any VR video and press the stream directly using MilkVR/Samsung VR button under the video.
You will be prompted to place your phone in the GearVR headset.
Place the Samsung phone in the GearVR headset and the video will start playing.



HTC VIVE


How do I watch VR videos on my HTC Vive?



Navigate to any VR video and click the download VR video button under the video.
Purchase the Virtual Desktop app on the Steam store.
Open Virtual Desktop in the HTC Vive and in the settings window, under the Videos tab, browse and open your downloaded VR video.
Select either Top/Under for 360 or side-by-side for 180 videos. If it still doesn't look right then change the other setting options. Enjoy!

my psvr cant play any videos it says "Cannot play the media"
2 weeks ago
I think it's because the resolution of the video is too high. videos with resolution 1280x720 worked fine but anything higher and it'll pop up with that message

Every time I try to watch a VR video it says "video is unsupported for ios player" How do I fix that? I have an iPhone6 with up to date software and update FreeVRPlayer too.
