Youtube for the Oculus Rift
I’ve done it. Finally finished. It took me a whole day and most the night, and the better part of the next morning, but I can finally say I’ve finished one of the things I’ve been longing for – the ability to watch Youtube videos in the Rift!
I’ve implemented it as a Chrome extension, and there are many things that can be improved:
- More settings (e.g. custom width, height)
- More sources (vimeo? netflix?)
- More bridges (only vr.js is supported)
I will followup with a more detailed technical breakdown of the hacks required to get this working.
