Still some issues

VR files that I access through upon are badly focused whereas regular files are fine. If I play the badly focused files directly from my phone or from like google drive they are perfectly focused. Would be nice to be able to access files directly from pc on the same wifi network or from iCloud. Google drive is extremely slow to update. I also wanted to add that the icons that appear with the videos in upnp disappear after you run the video the first time. Displaying the video title all the time in either regular mode or in grid would make it easier to find clips in directories with lots of files. I thought I would add an update. I tried using Plex as my upnp instead of Playon and my focus issue went away. This also makes it easier to access files on my laptop also. So I guess I solved two of my issues lol.

Great to hear you solved your own issues. Now the issue with the grid is I didn't want to overload the screen with text, which is a costly to display and may tank the frame rate.

Suprisingly good

I expected this app to be filled with intrusive ads and desperate attempts to get the user to buy the full version. There are no ads and the only major restriction with the free version is the 5 minute limit on videos. This is annoying however a very good way to keep the integrity and quality of the app whilst still encouraging purchase of the paid version. It’s only a few bucks for everything!

The vr interface is awesome and it is clear the developer values functionality. The settings menu is not the best in terms of organization and look but it doesn’t matter because with a bit or work I can change all the settings I would like which is uncommon.

The ability to play files from google drive while staying in vr is what makes this app great.

Absolutely amazing

After going through about 5 different VR players, none of which could accomplish what I needed, this one is the absolute best of the best. Has an insane amount of customization options and the quality of the video playback is awesome. The only tiny issue I have is alignment problems. I do seem to have to tap the screen every few minutes or so to re-center it but I had this problem on every other VR player. The nice things about this one is I can tap anywhere on the screen and bam, realigned again. Just need a headset now with a button that taps the screen without taking out the headset. Either way, amazing job. Keep up the good work. Bought the ultimate version almost immediately.

Developer Response ,

You should try using the of the available Eye modes to keep the player centered, since drift has been a constant problem.
