We won’t get into the technical details behind the following, but the goal here is for you to experience the clearest, highest resolution 360 VR videos you can.
There are some limitations to watching these videos at their highest resolution that have to do with the fact that there is so much data involved with displaying an 8k 360 VR video that your headset sometimes can’t handle processing it all fast enough for you to watch without crashing.
Because of this, you will find videos that claim to be 8k or even 12k, but you will not be able to easily watch them in their fullest resolution. YouTube doesn’t even have a way for you to watch the 12k ones at all. At the time we write this, 8k is the highest resolution we were able to set.
These apps are changing very quickly and we’ve already had to change this once because of it. So, if any of this changes and we don’t catch it, please let us know.
There are different types of videos you will find on YouTube.
There are a number of ways you can watch 360 VR videos. Below are three that are most often used.
