Searching through and finding videos in the YouTube VR app can be kind of a pain. But 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 YouTube VR app in your headset, if you’re logged into it.
We’re going to show you how to do this below.
How do I get to watch these videos in my headset?
NOTE: The first set of instructions you will see below happen on your desktop browser.
If you look at the playlists and you see a little lock icon next to them. If it’s locked, it’s private.
Once you’ve created all your playlists and put movies in them, the next step will be to watch them in your headset. Instructions for that are next.
NOTE: The following instructions you see below happen inside your headset.
Step 1. Once you’ve opened YouTube VR in your headset, look up and to the right and select the Account Button.
Step 3. Below the Account name, you will find some options.
Below these is where your playlists will show up. You can see this in the next image down.
The workaround involves watching the videos in the FireFox Reality Browser. We have created another Guide for that.
