This is a FireFox Reality companion document to the one where we show you how to bring your YouTube Playlists from the desktop browser into your headset to watch in VR.
We’re going to assume you read that document and you’ve already figured out how to do this with the YouTube VR app, and you’re here because you would like to learn how to do this in the FireFox Reality Browser.
There are a many reasons to do this, but we’ll just go over a couple here. Then we’ll show you how the process works in FireFox.
Hot Tip! Below is a Step by Step on how to set your resolution to 8k and get the best experience from your 360 Videos. NOTE: This will only work if the video was uploaded in 8k. If you’d like to see a great list we’ve created of our favorites, click here after reading this page.
That’s it! Now your videos will now be at the highest resolution you can view them currently.
Pro Tip! You’re going to need to do this on every video you watch in FireFox. It resets to 4k automatically on every new video.
Coming up next we show you how to take Playlists from desktop into your headset! This makes it much easier to find the videos you want to see while searching on your desktop and then you can watch them in your headset.
There’s also no easy way to copy & paste urls from desktop to the headset at this time.
But there is a good workaround. YouTube allows you to make “Playlists” and organize your videos that way. The really good news is that these “Playlists” will sync to anywhere you are logged into YouTube. So your playlists created on desktop or mobile will show up inside the FireFox browser in your headset, if you’re logged into YouTube.com there.
We’re going to show you how to do this below.
How do I get to watch these videos in my headset?
NOTE: We are assuming you’ve already created at least one playlist in your YouTube account. If you haven’t and would like to learn how to do that, Click Here.
We’re going to assume one more thing, that you’ve downloaded the FireFox Reality app into your headset from the Oculus Store. It is free. If you have not done that, please do it before trying to follow these instructions.
The first set of instructions you will see below happen in your headset.
Step 7. Now you continue to scroll down and you will see your Watch Later videos and finally, your Playlists will start to show up!
